I wish I could be this optimistic. Not only I'd buy one day zero (which is happening regardless), but I'd buy a ton of Japanese games.
Well if they aren't going to ship it for this year they're going to stay quiet about it as it'll only work as a deterrent for holiday season purchasers.
If it's region free, I may import for the first time ever...
That doesn't make any sense though... The same people who would see an NA or EU Direct and tell everyone about it, thus affecting sales, already know about it... and are telling people about it(and already reporting on it)... and are already affecting sales just as much as they would with a local direct... There's absolutely no reason for NOA and NOE to act as though they don't know anything about it.
Thanks, Im guessing the tweet didnt say much, or give where he heard it?He tweeted it. He's that guy that does the Nintendomination videos.

Man it would suck if people import off just this tweet and it ends up being locked. Im sure we will get a clarification before too long though.

RUMOR!!! An Alien told me that there is a possibility, that the "NEW #Nintendo #3DS" won't have #RegionLocking & Big NNiD changes incomming
There's no reason to believe any rumor about the New 3ds right now. Whenever a new console or hardware revision is announced there's a rush of bs rumors to fill the void of information and the desire to believe this new product is gonna be amazing. It's just a bunch of people having their fun or fishing for clicks.
Not really, do you think a local direct would affect that apathy? The news that a new 3DS is on the horizon is already known to the people who track Nintendo Directs. I don't see how a local one would change anything other than keeping NOA and NOE from looking like they have their heads in the sand. At the moment they just look terribly mismanaged by not acknowledging it's existence.I think you're underestimating the general gaming apathy of the market, and parents.
Come on Doshin the Giant HD.Tbh I bet there's a rumor for just about every Nintendo franchise atm.
This if it was region free the country list in the system settings would have all countrries on it (this is what determines eShop access, literally you can't access the Japanese eShop on a US 3Ds as you can't change the country to Japan) on it and you would be able to use English menu too. Unless they do a weird thing where carts are region free but everything remains the same (I'd think they would go big or go home).if it was region free and i imported one would the e-shop only japan ? or could i change it so i can get to the european 3-shop
My wife can read it, she skimmed Famitsu article - they think the 3D viewing angle is incredible and it's also much clearer for a second person looking over the shoulder, even though Nintendo hasn't said so explicitly. They say the new stick & trigger buttons are well placed and work good but comfort will depend on hand size. When comparing the two, they say it's hard to pick which is better, cause the LL is easier to hold and has bigger screens, but the regular is still bigger than the old regular 3DS, and much lighter. You could pretty much just infer most of that without an article
