I want to believe each game is the size of awakening, so when you buy Hoshido you have a complete game, when you buy Nohr you have another complete game (with a related story) and when you DLC the 3rd path you have yet another complete game, with a related story again.jpn release isnt coming out for months, it "should" work though
and speaking of which http://www.nintendolife.com/news/20...takes_shape_as_two_separate_releases_in_japan
2 different boxed copies of the game, I don't know about other people but the direct led me to believe that both were on the same cart
also they are selling an incomplete game at that requiring people to pay for the dlc to unlock the "3rd path"
And when I say complete game I mean new and different maps, missions and story segments that add up together but could also stand perfectly on its own as a complete game.
I want to believe, otherwise I would feel ripped off, and with it being from Nintendo I don't see any reason not to believe.
