I know that the E-Reader is region locked in that it will only read cards from its home region, but it was my understanding that the device itself is completely compatible with GBAs/GCNs of different regions. Is it possible to scan Japanese e-Reader cards into an English copy of Animal Crossing using a Japanese e-Reader?

For anyone interested, I have ordered a Japanese e-Reader and a few e-cards from Japan that should arrive in a week or two so we'll find out soon. Unfortunately, I realized that I ordered cards from the e+ series... so... no telling what will happen when I try to scan a card for a villager that doesn't exist in ACGC.

I'm kind of interested in this myself. Have you been able to test it out? I don't have a GBA or link cable atm so I can't try it out myself...

I received the Japanese E-Reader and some DnM e+ e-cards... the E-Reader loads and works fine with my US GBA SP, however, whenever I try to load the ACGC card reader program onto the E-Reader via the machine in the post office, I receive an error (or so I think, everything on the E-Reader is in Japanese).

I might try again sometime, but I can't tell whether I'm doing something wrong, or if it's just not going to work.
