With a little bit of hex voodoo, your 3DS can be region-free

Posted on January 8, 2014 - 3:15pm by Sean Hinz

Really interested in playing that new Persona spin-off, but don't own a Japanese 3DS? Well I have good news for you! Some 3DS community member put their heads together and discovered that the console can very well be made region-free. It won't require any physical modifications either, just installing some custom patches.

The hex patch will essentially unlock the system once installed and allow for region-free gameplay on your 3DS. Please note that this doesn't encourage any form of piracy, nor will it allow you to play ROMs. It just opens a 3DS up to a world of games instead of being locked to its respective region. Persona Q will be ready for importation this June!
