    I'm interested in some of the games that are JP only that really don't require you to know the language (ex. RPGs...).

    Anyone?

    Besides that fighting game...

    >_> Well thanks for the speedy response but I meant ones that won't have a chance being localized.

    well since most RPGs are text based you might want to stick to games like Tales of Hearts or Blood of Bahamut since you don't need to follow the story to play all the way through(its good to know the story but not necessary)

    I meant games besides rpgs, they were an example for the heavy text based stuff [​IMG]

    Anyways got enough of those, maybe a platformer, or puzzle, or some genre I'm missing.

    Choushoujuu Mecha MG is one of those games that should have been ported how it wasn't I have no clue but you'll probably never see a better mech game than this sense they turn them all into shooters now -_-

    only catch is when you equip new parts it helps to be able to read but Game Faq has a translation guide for that, so other than that you can get by with out being able to read..

    Its one of my top fave games on the Ds [​IMG]

    Utacchi is a good rhythm game, especially if you're into JPOP/Anime, as some of the songs there are directly from the anime themselves.

    Culdcept DS also is a great boardgame/cardgame hybrid, with online features, that are currently japanese only, but they have a great translation patch here that is almost done for the most part. once you get the gist of the game, it's quite addicting. [​IMG]

    Cross Treasures is a great Action RPG, with close to no story (and thus no text either) at all. It's really good. I made a review about it here.

    How is pokemon even obscure? [​IMG]

    Some of the not so popular japanese games i've played:
    Prince of tennis series (Tennis no Ouji-Sama 2005 - Crystal Drive)
    Quite liked this tennis game since i also like the anime. Game has some special tennis moves thats cool [​IMG]

    Gundam Mahjong DS - Oyaji ni mo Agararekotonai-noni

    I was looking for a mahjong game.. though i dont really know how it works, its kinda fun.

    Crayon Shin-Chan - Arashi o Yobu - Nendororo n Daihenshin
    Crayon shin chan sidescroller. Its kinda like a mario style game. It has some weird/hilarious game mechanics [​IMG]

    Taiko no tatsujin series (drum master)

    This should be popular, its one of my favs [​IMG]

    Nanashi no Game is scary good, and will probably never be localized.

    p.s. theres a sequel too called Nanashi no Game: The Eye

    You don't find creatures with superpowers that announce their names obscure?
