Hi guys, I just bought the 3ds xl european version. Because I wanted to play the 3ds game "Rune Facory 4", which I bought in the US during my holiday. Until now I had the DSi XL and it wasn't a problem to play US-Games. Unfortunately Nintendo startet to built the 3ds with a region code. Is there a way that I still can play the orginial 3ds games and ds games on my 3ds xl european version? Thanks for your help. Best regards thanks for all tips, guys, i finally ordered one r4i gold 3ds card from dsflashcart site this one http://www.dsflashcart.com/r4i-gold-3ds-wood-r4i-3ds-flashcard-for-ds-dsi-3ds-p-248.html can'r wait for it.
