I have an American 2dsxl but European games won’t play. Is it possible to change the region?

Easy. Just install homebrew!
It breaks the region lock, so you can play your EU games.
I recommend you follow a tutorial at https://3ds.hacks.guide

Select the System Settings icon on the HOME Menu, and tap Open. Tap Other Settings. Tap Profile. Tap Region Settings. Select the country and tap OK. Select the region and tap OK to return to the profile menu.

Your Welcome.

  • Thats not how you change a region lock! You still won't be able to play other games! Feb 3, 2021 at 14:43
