    Hello ppl, does anybody know of a japanese gaming site that reviews Japanese games (english site) for the DS. I noticed that in Japan they have quite a few more titles then we have here in North America and i would like to know more about the games. So if anyone got a site please let me know [​IMG] thanks.

    That one is pretty good but their review list is a little small, i was thinking more along the lines of a japanese ign/gamespot , in english or with an english option.

    I don't think you'd find a site like that, if even the big review sites don't review such games. Could be wrong though :x

    How about a japanese site like IGN/Gamespot in Japanese? We might not understand the content, but we can always be wowed by them pretty pictures. [​IMG] (Serious question though).

    www.the-magicbox.com covers Japanese gaming news and such, though as for reviews they only state the overall scores given in Famitsu.

    @Darkforce , i was already using magic box they are good for previews and news, its to bad there are no review sites that we know of. I just started playing some J games osu and daigasso those were pretty cool , but i dont want to keep taking my sd card out to keep trying different games might break the spring or whatever in the supercard. Maybe someone here could start a japanese gaming section ? just a thought

    Well though we don't have a dedicated board, check out the threads on new DS Japanese releases, someone will usually post a bit of information on the given game (usually x_comp [​IMG]) and if it's good there will be lots of comments from other people e.g. Kaitou Rousseau, Rockman ZX etc... xD

    The thing with Famitsu is it's not that great for people that dont read japanese. Theres so many blogs that just take all that info and write it all up in english. It's easier for a westerner to go elsewhere to read about the latest games. Although i must say the magazine was amazing back in the PCE days.

    I cant really think of a big site that has in-depth reviews for japanese ds games in english [​IMG]. Normally ill just visit the homepage for the game, checkout a few pics an videos then decide if i should flash it or not.
