Rare games being reprinted

Postby Kaori » Sun Apr 24, 2016 12:56 am

So a canadian conpany is reprinting hard to find DS games, I must say, this is pretty convenient as I can now get Infinite Space, wonder if they will consider reprinting Solatorobo.

I saw that, thought it was kind of cool. Then I saw it was in Canada, and had a single tear roll down my face. I'm sure they ship, but dem costs lol. Which thinking about it, are the games up there technically the same region as the U.S.? Like, would region locking affect it? I honestly don't know :p

No, it counts as NA. Besides, DS doesn't have region-lock. I played a PAL DS game on my NA 3DS just recently, so don't worry.
But now you finally know our pain! All those shipping costs on US orders! Some eBay sellers don't even offer shipping to Canada!
I'm very tempted to get Infinite Space, but I must resist. I need to save money for my trip.

Yes, for 3DS games. Not for DS titles.

Ah, So I can play any DS game from anywhere on my 3DS? It's only 3DS games I'm limited to the region?

:P You can pick up the UK Solatorobo cheap from the UK, doesn't cost anywhere as near as the US version plus its region free. Though supporting this company's releases would allow them to reprint more.

You got it! However, DSi enhanced games (like Solatorobo) are region-locked.
