    This is so awesome. If only the 3DS itself was not region locked.

    Considering "Sonic Classics Collection" doesn't load in either a Japanese DSi/LL/3DS, this is rather intriguing. I'd like to see a Japanese copy be tested on a foreign 3DS console.

    Is it, though? Perhaps the region locking for BW only works on the DSi.
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    It has been confirmed by Nintendo that 3DS games are region locked.

    I don't understand your question. I was just saying that I wish 3DS games weren't region locked.

    I've tried a Japanese copy of Black in an European 3DS. Didn't even show up where an English copy of SoulSliver did.

    I smell something fishy about the blogger's story then.

    It may very well be possible that region protection was forgotten for one of the two, or the image was simply botched.
