Bullet Phantasia is pretty good, and at a decent price now. You may also want to pick up Onechanbara Origin.

Sacrifice of the Abyss and likely the new coming out Switch Taiko no Taitsujin game. Was thinking of Gundam Breakers 3, but I have a million Dynasty Warrior like games, so I'll likely pass.

The Japanese Xbox One version of Grand Theft Auto V has a separate achievement list from the international version. I'm tempted at $46.99. Not a great price but probably not gonna find better.

Ordered some prize figures. Shipping prices from Japan these days have been making prizes too expensive.

I'd say figure prices from Japan are just crazy in general not even considering shipping. I haven't really bought a figure in ages. Just a nendo here or there. I used to like getting scaled figures, but am not into the prices or the characters as much nowadays. Overseas shipping is bad though, so this is a highly recommended sale especially for missing Asia-English games or such.

Some...interesting items (NSFW). Is this one of those cultural differences?

Thanks for the heads up, pre-ordered the Asia-exclusive Final Fantasy IX release for Switch.

 

Does anybody know if foreign games that may later be ported to the US will become playable in English once that happens?  For example, if I buy a physical copy of Persona 5 Scramble which is Asia/Japan-only, will I be able to play the cartridge in English once it is brought over to the US and becomes available in the US eShop?

Darn, Mega Drive Mini Tower = sold out. Hako Boy Hakozume Box = sold out. Guess I'll have to order the Yuyu Bunny costume from above to take advantage of free shipping.

Only if JPN/Asia/whatever version gets English subs down the line will that work. Atlus/Sega/PQube/Etc... release for different regions and are not counted as the same game on the eshops and such. You may get lucky like my save for Project Diva F 2nd (had a Vita JPN copy) working for the NA version. That's something different though. For your P5 Scramble that would be no for sure.

Cool got my Japanese Rail Sim: Journey to Kyoto order in. With my points, free shipping, and gematsu coupon it took it significantly down in cost. Awesome. Also got in the FF9 switch order with the aforementioned PLAYASIAWEEK code which saves you more than the gematsu code

What are some good ps4 titles that havent come stateside that have a version with english subtitles?

Already bought Summer Lesson and DOA Extreme 3.

I dont mind visual novel type games if the price is right.

Anything anime

Gundam Breakers 3 is considered a good musou type game. If you like Strategy games The Super Robot Wars/SD Gundam games are considered good, though I'd lean a bit towards the Super Robot Wars ones. There is Bullet Girls Phantasia, Kamen Rider games, Gintama fighting game, though I haven't played them and I don't hear as much good things about them. Girls Und Panzer looks OK. I think I got most of the major Asia-English releases there that I don't believe are on the US PSN.

Is this version of Labyrinth Life censored, or is it just the NA version?

Switch version is the way to go for that game. Game is just so-so though IMHO.

Ugh, thanks... I was feeling pretty iffy on it.

I'm just on the fence now about FFVII/FFVIII remastered twin pack, which is forthcoming in Europe.  I kind of want to get the Japan version of FFX/X-2 just because it irritates me that X-2 isn't on the US version cart.

 

Anybody have any good recommendations to non-Japanese/Chinese readers (like me) of Switch games that aren't available to the US or won't become available to the US?
