I've been trying to find the U.S. version of this (brand new) for a long time with no luck, so I'm thinking about jumping on this. Does anyone know if this game is playable if I don't know Japanese?

I heard that this version is in full English, with Japanese subtitles.

I picked this up during the sale since I couldn't find a U.S. version locally in stores.

It's an action puzzler, no need to know the language.

If anybody really, really wants a demo of the Japanese version to figure out if you'd get along with it, PM me.

No one will have a problem with it. IIRC, it has English on all menus and subtitles.

Thanks for the advice, everyone. I decided to go for it.

I couldn't resist picking up a Super Mario Characters Figure Collection 2: Super Mario while I was at it :)

Not only is $13 an awesome price for an import GBA game, but M VS. DK is an excellent game to boot. You can play it in really short sessions, but it has a ton of levels. The boss battles even play like the original DK game. I highly recommend it.

When I saw the amazing deal and box art at Play-Asia, I felt a little itch of jealousy that I had got mine some years ago at full price for the US version. I just had to take my ol' cart to replay a level or two. Good for those who bought this from PA.

I wasn't sure if I should import but after the reassurances that it's import friendly I ordered a copy. Thanks, OP!

I just got this from Sears for $8, no shipping to worry about :) The box isn't as cool for the US version though :(

Because you put 2 of them in there?
