Custom Firmware Can Make Your New Japanese 3DS Region-Free

By   /   Mar 21, 2015

There’s a new custom firmware that converts the status of your imported new 3DS handhelds to region-free and hence allows you to run US/European copies of games.

It’s called NTR CFW 2.0 and is put out by Cell9. The firmware is only able to load retail cartridges and will not crack your 3DS to allow for piracy or homebrew apps.

It’s important to note that installing this firmware will have you lose access to the Japanese eShop. On the bright side, you will be able to use a custom menu to take in-game screenshots and use plug-ins.

NTR CFW 2.0 currently only supports Japanese New 3DSes with firmware versions 8.1.0/9.1.0/9.2.0, and you’ll need an import copy of Cubic Ninja to get it work. According to Cell9, work is being done to add support for the original 3DS and other regions.

Thanks to this firmware, you can now proceed to import 3DS handhelds from Japan with those fancy cover plates.
