Is it possible to change the region on a Nintendo 3DS? – Yes, it is possible. However, the American and European 3DS contains different country/region listings. After changing the region of the Nintendo 3DS, the user will have access to its eShop.

How To Change Nintendo 3DS eShop Region :

  1. Turn on the Nintendo 3DS.
  2. Tap on the ‘System Settings’ icon and open it.
  3. Select ‘Other Settings’, followed by ‘Profile’.
  4. Choose ‘Region Settings’.
  5. Select a country to switch to, and hit the ‘ok’ button.
  6. Go back to the home screen of the 3DS and open eShop.
  7. Agree to the terms and that’s it. You now have access to the region’s eShop.

Note : If you change your region to the United States or the United Kingdom (for example), you will be required to enter a zip code or postal code when making a purchase, adding funds to your account or downloading a free game demo.
