The KanKen Chronicles

Cool! I am planning to get a Japanese Nintendo 3DS soon. (In Japan while I'm there in May/June if the price is good, otherwise I'll order one online after I get back.)

I was just looking into the Japanese eShop. Am I right in assuming that a title downloaded from the Japanese eShop would not work if downloaded to a US Nintendo 3DS? I know it's region locked for cartridges, but I never thought about eShop titles before. Also, seeing that the Switch is not region locked and can use titles from the Japanese eShop makes me want a Switch more. :-)

As far as I'm aware there's not even the option to access a different region's eShop on the 3DS. Short of maybe doing 3DS hacking/homebrew it wouldn't be possible. I'm totally out of the loop on that stuff though.
