In a recent interview with a Nintendo Representative, it was confirmed that the New Nintendo 3DS console would be region locked, meaning that users residing in Canada or the U.S won’t be able to play with other countries such as Japan.

The real question is: Why is this restriction even in place?

Rumors had arose in the past stating that the New 3DS wouldn’t be region locked, but those rumors were quickly proven false.

As of now, it doesn’t look like we’ll be seeing this region lock restriction lifted any time soon, but it doesn’t hurt to hope…right?
