As the title states. Is it possible to use a Japanese VC download code on an American new 2DS XL?
I recently bought all Japanese "boxed" releases since they were cheap but didn't realize there may be a region lock.
Games are region locked, you will need a code for the region that your 3DS/2DS is from in order to download it. In other words you'll need a Japanese console to play the region locked Japanese games.
It's the same principle for Pokemon event codes in later games.
