NFC 3DS Scanner not region locked

Play Asia has lied!

According to My Nintendo News, Someone (chelsea @PKMNtrainrChels on Twitter) has discovered that the company "Play Asia" who claimed that the new NFC scanner (not yet released in North America) will be region locked, has lied. When something is region locked, the devices/accessories made for those regions will not work for devices outside of those regions. Chelsea has discovered that the Japanese released model of the 3DS NFC scanner accessory can work with the U.S. 3DS console.
This is great information because now we know we can purchase the NFC Scanner from overseas and and use it before it's released in North America. However Nintendo may decide to put out a mandatory update, making it region locked eventually.

Game on and Keep it Rehl!
