If you were hoping that Nintendo would take the chance to rectify one of the mistakes that the company had made when they released the Nintendo 3DS with their upcoming New Nintendo 3DS you will be disappointed to hear that they will remain the only major console/handheld publisher to still use region locking, even for the New Nintendo 3DS.

Speaking with GameSpot, Nintendo stated that the system will remain region locked, which has been a source of much grief for gamers in Europe who regularly receive certain titles many months, even a year or two, over North American games and those who wish to import Japanese games.
