I feel we'll have to remind people to not buy the japanese version of splatoon before launch. Lots of people are unaware and some have preordered already

I felt it was a safe bet, with it being a first party game with a simultaneous global launch. I wonder what the reasoning is? I'd understand if it was heavily voiced, and space was a concern etc.

I had just preordered it on amazon.jp and didn't search first. Blah. Good thing i was able to cancel.

i was actually considering getting the JP version of Splatoon 2 to have access to the JP-only Splatfests but it took so long to load matches in the demo splatfest that i'm not so sure it's a good idea anymore.
it must have been the servers since i got matches super fast in the demo from my region later.

I’m really disappointed I can’t buy Splatoon from Amazon Japan like I did for Mario Kart and Arms. Now I gotta wait until 11 central in the states.

Could anyone confirm if non-multi language games are still a universal sku or one purchase across multiple regions?

I'd love to be able to get Splatoon 2 a littlebit early on the Japanese store for a bit cheaper, then delete it later and download the Australian version.

probably should just read some of the posts in this page (or previous page if you're using 50pp)

It doesn't work for D5 or Puyo. Tried it some time ago.

Damn, you're right. It doesn't work.

I have the U.S. version of Puyo Puyo so I tried to do the reverse. Deleted the game, set console and Nintendo account to Japan, re-downloaded from Japanese eShop. Loaded the game up and everything was still in English.

So that confirms it. Make sure y'all cancel your JP Splatoon 2 pre-orders if you don't want to play in Japanese.

I'm going to import the Japanese physical version since we are only getting digital. Does anyone know if the NA version will have english VO?
Odd. It says the 24th on the eShop, perhaps it comesout earlier in Japan?

Should be noted that if this does have full English this means people can get it a month earlier rather than having to wait until September on Switch.
Wasn't it retail in Japan? I thought it was digital-only in NA (same as on Switch, mrgrgr)
Retail in both Japan and Europe. Not too sure how it'll be this time around for other regions.

Make a Japanese account just to poke around their eShop but I decided not to keep it and deleted it.

Now how do I stop Japanese news from popping up in my feed?

So I made a Japanese account to try the MH demo....now my next question is, any Japanese games with English built in that are worth checking out?

FYI, Mario + Rabbids US is available for preorder on Amazon JP for launch date availability. Pretty neat considering it's a 2018 game for Japan.

Hmm, do I get Xenoverse 2 now or do I wait to get it physically and cheaper later?

Any word on the Xenoverse 1 story campaign DLC for the US release?

octopath being jp only strikes me weird considering they're planning worldwide release & the demo is Multilanguage. I wonder if it'll have jp-only sqex members link feature like in bravely series that cause it being different sku compared to other regions
