Hey guys, I figured that this was a reasonable place to come to ask this question.
I'm currently living in England for the semester, studying abroad. And I really want the new Fire Emblem game and, probably, the new Luigi's mansion game when it comes out. Unfortunately, games come out later in Europe and are region-locked (or so I am told). So I am seriously considering buying Fire Emblem from the e-shop.
However, I've heard worrying rumblings about it, such as the account being system locked, which would mean that if I lost my 3DS or if it broke or wore out, I'd be down a fire emblem, and I still play original GBA fire emblem, which means I'd be frustrated to lose access to the most recent iteration. So what's your advice on this? Should I try my luck with the e-shop? Or should I just wait until I see people from the states and ask them to bring it to me?
