    I'm not going to get my hopes up for an English release. And "- FULL ENGLISH TRANSLATION AVAILABLE FROM THE OPTIONS MENU" doesn't matter, you can't import an XBLA game. [​IMG]

    For those who need a Japanese account:

    1. Create a Japanese Xbox Live Account:,15771.0.html

    2. Buy some Japanese Xbox Points:

    Redeem code. Download.

    You do not need a Japanese gold account to play Japanese 360 games on Xbox Live. The only thing you need a Japanese (silver) account for is to purchase the game itself from the JPN marketplace. The content is then registered to your Xbox. You can log in with any of your Gamertags and play the game normally.
