Two days ago we happened upon a rumor that New Nintendo 3DS won’t be region-locked, meaning you’d be able to import games from any region and play them. Unfortunately, this rumor has already been debunked by the Big N. GameSpot contacted Nintendo for an official comment on the subject, and Nintendo confirmed that New Nintendo 3DS, like 3DS and Wii U, will be region-locked.

For the time being, Nintendo remains the only major first-party company that still region-locks its devices. What do you think of this policy?
