    Since it's region locked, I'll need to buy games from here, obviously. I'm looking for good games that are Japan-exclusive or just very good/not out in NA yet.
    I can casually walk to the store and pick up a game, so I don't have to worry about import taxes, but games here are fucking way more expensive than NA.

    Anyway, here are some games I'm considering:

    Monster Hunter 3G (never played a MH game before, so I'm going to buy it used for half price)
    NSMB2 (Probably not though...)
    Taiko no Tatsujin
    New Love Plus...? (probably not)
    Pre-ordering Medabots 7 and Animal Crossing 3D (yes it's avaiable for preorder with no set launch date)

    Also, which games still look good on the XL? I heard RE: Revelations looks the best (Biohazard here, which I can get for half price with no case or booklet...)


    Any suggestions? There's probably some games I've forgotten about, though.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't like that series a whole lot. Anything else?

    Is the demo on the eshop for sure? (I've never played a Japanese 3DS, so I don't know what demos are available.)

    I'm not sure if it is on anymore, but I definitely know it was released in Japan early February. Also, I recommend you first play 9 persons 9 doors 9 hours before you play this one, not sure of what it is called in Japan.

    Monster Hunter 3G and 4, I have 3G and its terrific.

    Bravely Default (this is one you NEED to pay attention to)

    The 2 Naruto titles, maybe One Piece

    Hatsune Miku and Future Stars: PM (not really worth that price though)

    Fire Emblem: Kakusei (although the US is getting it)

    Culdcept

    Calchiobit

    Time Travelers

    My friends like New Love+ a lot, but according to them it takes a LOT of memory space.

    Beyond the Labyrinth (the one with the girl and beautiful graphics)

    Biohazard Revelations will look very nice on the LL.

    You're talking about this?

    For New Love Plus, you will need to understand Japanese and speak Japanese to a certain degree or else you won't be able to proceed in certain parts of the game.

    I watched a gameplay video of it, and it turned me off. Not my kind of game.

    Also, Beyond the Labyrinth looks decent. Thanks for the list.
