The tweet also stated that big NNID changes are coming. RUMOR!!! An Alien told me that there is a possibility, that the "NEW #Nintendo #3DS" won't have #RegionLocking & Big NNiD changes incomming — NiNTENDOMiNATiON (@TiLMEN) September 2, 2014 If this is true, it would be really great for us as consumers. Nintendo has always been very stubborn about their region locking, being able to play a game that you import from Japan without buying a Japanese 3DS would be really great. If this new 3DS is region free then that could mean we’ll be seeing a Wii U update to add region free capabilities. I think I’m more excited for changes to the NNID. The 3DS getting NNIDs would be great and greatly increase the ease of adding players. The 3DS still uses the old Nintendo friend code system which is a pain to use. Let us know what you think about the possible changes below, and have a great day! Share this post: No related posts.
