Hi. I just figured out how to connect my 3DS to the Internet.

Why is it that, whenever I search for stuff, I get a fat sack of nothing?

Like, I look up Earthbound.

“Lol nothing matches your description.”

I look up “Fire Emblem.”

“Kek what dat?”

Okay, how about just “Heirs?”

“Now you’re just makin’ up words.”

What do?

There's something wrong with your 3DS eshop then, because I found plenty of results when I searched for "Fire Emblem". Earthbound is also there in the search results for said title among a few videos...and I don't know what "Heirs" is.

check the country your 3DS is set to under the Profile section of the settings

a lot of South American countries only get patches for retail games

Really? Certain areas don't get anything but patches? I couldn't really be called a "shop" at that point then.

I was looking for the Heirs of Fate Fire Emblem Fates DLC.

Because I got a notification about it.

You buy that from the game itself. There should be an option to buy it in the dlc section

No, see.

When it showed up, I thought:

It has to show up on the EShop!

I don't know much about it since I live in Europe... but I remember several users from smaller countries in Asia (don't remember which ones) saying that they had to change the country in system settings to access games on the eshop. I'm pretty sure that that's the case of Philippines, not sure which other countries are in the same situation (I found this as an example https://medium.com/@djoaniel/the-philippine-nintendo-eshop-solution-df01b2d838b4)
