Will the 3DS be region-locked ?

It could be, according to an e-mail supposedly sent to an anxious customer by Nintendo. Crunchgear posted today the link to a Korean blog showing a screen cap of said e-mail. As far as I’m concerned, I’ll continue to have faith in Nintendo and not give credit to any of these rumors until something official pops up. It’s not like region-locking is that big of a deal anyway, most region-specific games aren’t worth importing, and awaited titles usually get a worldwide release date or very close international release dates. Again this is just a rumor, don’t start burning Nintendo flags just yet, at least wait for a confirmation.

Meanwhile make sure to check our our video and coverage of Nintendo World 2011.

    I have to aruge with this no big deal part. I speak on the behalf of the “Tales” series, I have yet seen one in english unlessed hacked and patched. I love this series but I can only get it on “emulator”. If they do this I want english versions of the “Tales” or i just might jump the boat on this one.

    If region lock means I can’t get some games in English AND some in Japanese unless I buy two 3DS, then I’m strongly against it.
