    Was looking forward to this one, I hear Nintendo may be bringing this to English speaking shores.

    Apparently its some kind of RPG where you raise bacteria up and battle with them.

    Is it as awesome as it sounds? Playable without Japanese?

    You'll need to understand the language to have any idea of whats going on but I had a lot of fun from it, you basically circle bacteria and then direct them where to go I fount that surrounding the opponents bacteria with your own is the best way to success.

    Apart from the battle bit you do have to chat to a lot of people and look for more bacteria, you tap on the locations and you go there straight away, chatting to people is done Phoenix Wright style.

    I fount this to be a typical Nintendo game, easy interface, good music and sounds and compelling gameplay I hope for English release as it would be even better if you knew what the hell you are doing. A good little addictive RPG but with a different style for battling. 8/10

    Oh and its totally different to Infect. Evolve. Repeat.
