Has there been any mention whether someone with a Japanese version will be able to play locally with a localized version? It did not normally work with the psp games but it could be done through ad-hoc party so I doubt capcom would change for this but just asking.
On the 3DS there will not be an online mode. On the Wii U, there is, but the servers will probably be set per region. Japan will have their own servers, America will have their own, and Europe and Australia will have their own. I think it's going to be the same as the Tri servers.
3DS: 4983-4968-4308 = Kjell Cash rules everything around me, C.R.E.A.M.
Knowing Nintendo, they'll separate the different players according to their region.
This, Nintendo seem to be very set on making people play only with people from their own region.
Lol, what? Nintendo Network is a centralized infrastructure, much like Nintendo WFC, where online games regardless of region can connect.
Also, Nintendo is forcing people to buy consoles and games that match regions, that's it. They do not restrict you from importing. Also, Pokemon's never had that restriction online, along with a slew of online games on Nintendo's handhelds. I think if a game has online, it should be able to connect to any region. Heroes of Ruin can connect between US and EU regions just fine, probably with JP too but I do not think it's be localized for JP. Mario Kart 7's another example (which touts the "preview" version of Nintendo Network's Community Codes).
pardon if my posts suck, i post by tapping on the handset button on a one-way analog handset. i saw Hannibal Lecter do it.
