Bought a Japanese 3DS

Got a friend to do the same. 20 days is long enough to justify this purchase. I am only slightly ashamed.

I figure there are worse vices than playing Smash Bros! Anyone else this desperate?

So, you decided to import a Japanese 3DS, so you could play Smash Bros. a little early? Wow, I admire your dedication. If it's that important to you, though, I don't see anything wrong with it personally. There are way worse things to spend money on, as you said. Plus, there are enough Japan-only apps and exclusive games and other games Japan gets early that make it really worthwhile (unless there aren't any others that interest you).

I have a JPN 3DS already (which I love), so I'll be getting the JPN version of Smash Bros., too. I'm kind of embarrassed to admit it, especially to such a dedicated fan, but this will actually be my very first Smash Bros. I'm really excited, though! I'll be getting the 3DS and Wii U versions both (both JPN versions). This site and the trailers in all the Nintendo Directs got me hyped enough to make me want the game. I don't know much about the series, but I'm really looking forward to trying it out!

I might get a Japanese 3DS, if the 3DS version of Petit Computer doesn't get released over here. :P

Some of my favorite memories of Final Fantasy were with Link and his Pikachu.

I'd rather use that money on something useful like bread.

I'm actually really waiting on this one, too. I'm guessing it will get released overseas, too, though.

So you spent ~$200 so you could play a game 20 days early? Whatever dude. :/

Now you have the option of buying games that will never get localized.

I love my japanese 3DS (and then XL). I got Mario early, Kirby early, Smash Brothers early, MH4 a year before literally, both Toriko games (never coming), Gaist Crusher, Puyo Puyo Tetris. I think it's a very good purchase. There is also a billion demos to play around in.
