After last week’s announcement for the New Nintendo 3DS models, many rumours surfaced in relation to hardware specifications, including the device’s ability to double the RAM. But now there’s another rumour throwing caution to the wind and refers to Nintendo’s often controversial choice of region-locking. According to Tilmen from Nintendomination, the two new 3DS models could be region-free and will also deliver changes to the Nintendo Network ID setup. As always, until we receive official confirmation, this rumour should be taken with a healthy dose of skepticism.
Rumours aside, and according to the official Japanese website, the new Nintendo 3DS models will not come packaged with an AC Adapter and shall be sold separately – as was the case with the Nintendo 3DS XL model. Plus, internet browsing and shifting between tabs can be done with a simple tap of the ZL and ZR shoulder buttons.
So has Nintendo made the decision to go region-free, even after its continual insistence in the past to keep the feature? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
