New 3DS is region locked

Nintendomination, a popular Nintendo fan site on the web, has been posting rumors about the New 3DS the past week. They said that the New 3DS would have triple the CPU speed as the 3DS and would not be region locked.

It turns out they’re lying. Nintendo confirmed to GameSpot that the new 3DS SKU is still region locked today. So that’s that folks. Don’t believe everything you hear about the New 3DS until its actually released somewhere!
