Nintendo are holding a special event tomorrow where we are hoping that they will announce when the 3DS will be available in the UK and Europe.
The guys over at Euro Gamer have received some information from Nintendo on why the 3DS will be region locked, you can see full details below.
“Nintendo 3DS hardware is available in three versions: Japanese, American and European/Australian. Nintendo has developed different versions of Nintendo 3DS hardware to take into account different languages, age rating requirements and parental control functionality, as well as to ensure compliance with local laws in each region,”
So I guess that clears that up then, and it looks like you will only be able to play 3DS games compatible with your region.
