    I have a save file for the JPN version of smash bros. The USA version will soon be released. Will my jpn save file work on the US version of the game?

    Saves are per-rom, so will not work on a diferent rom, and a diferent region, sorry, you will have to create a new save game...

    Well it all depends on the game, but so far the only game I'm aware of that had cross region compatible saves was pokemon x&y
