they ought to start bringing over japanese imports on the e-shop. Because I would love to play hatsune miku on the 3ds, but would rather not pay another 250$ for one, because I don't have that kind of money. Region locking a system is incredibly stupid. They could also put ex troopers up just as it is, untranslated. That would be fine with me. Just put a note on the e-shop saying "these games are not in English" EX Troopers looks fun, and I don't usually play games for story. A lot of games like RPG's do end up getting translated, but for music and games that don't rely to heavily on story, it would be cool to see them on the e-shop, and because it's not a game with a case or anything, it wouldn't cost too much. I mean, they did that on the wii with the first sin and punishment and that monster world 4 game right? So it would be cool if they did something like that for the 3ds, be it new game or old.

Oh well, I don't mean to complain, I know enough people do that already, just saying it would be cool if nintendo or other company's like sega put a few of there games up on the e-shop at some point.

A few games I am glad are getting released here: Fire emblem 3ds, proffesor layton vs ace attourney, Etrian Oddyssey 4, Ace attorney 5,Unchained blades, level 5 games like Liberation maiden, crimson shroud, etc. Oh! And rhythm harmoknights by game freaks! That game looks GREAT!

Games I hope are translated and released someday: Miles edgeworth 2, EX Troopers(they could always just give it some crappy subs and leave the hard subbed writing or whatever), Project X Zone(ARRRRGGHGHHHH)

Asides from that why are Gameboy colour games always put up so slowly? Like when do you think wario land 3 will come out? 2015?

I've been saying for a while that they should do this just like Sony did with the PS1 imports section on PSN. Those have notes about not being in English as well. I don't think they sold well though, as there haven't been any new ones in a while and in general there aren't a lot of them. I was hoping the rest of the Mega Man games will show up, but its been ages since 4 was put up there. I don't know what it is about those games, I can never purchase them too many times.

The region lock on 3DS didn't bug me too much until I saw the awesomeness that is DQ VII.

It's gonna be a long year of waiting for me.

Any idea if it'll get localised? (US and EU?)
I want that game so bad.

It's a numbered game, so it has a shot, even if Nintendo has to do it.

You must not follow Nintendo at all if you believe that. All of their retail-to-eshop games are the same as release day prices, and Unchained Blades will cost $29.99. Who ever told you that no case or anything would not cost much lied to you.

I believe he meant, "It won't cost too much for the developers." In which, yes, they won't have to pay for materials and translation.

I feel the same way. No translation is necessary. I just want the damn game! Give people options!
