    My guess is replacing most of the remaining Japanese text with English?

    No paddle controller? If they aren't including the paddle with at least one of those games they can go bleep themselves.

    Its official the US version of both wil have no paddle. So I guess that Europe won't either.

    What I might do is import Space Invaders Extreme with the paddle and just download the English ROM.

    I think you can also buy the paddle seperately, so you might want to do that [​IMG]

    You can buy the paddle on it's own, from Hong Kong and Japan based retailers ... in a selection of colors ... black, white, silver & pink.

    No not really but a lot of people don't have flashcarts or knowledge that they can import stuff so it would have been nice for them to experience the POWER of the paddle.

    What are some recommended import spots these days that won't rip your ass off wanting like $15-20 over cost? I hate so many think $50 is fair for a $30 value DS title.

    I got mine from yesasia.com but all they have left now is silver for $30 (free shipping). Play-asia only has pink for $30 shipped =/ If you want to risk eBay, you could get any color for $25 shipped if you live in the US.

    I would get one,except ive spent about $80 on flash cart stuff this week.

    I don't really need one actually,unless more games start to use it that is.
    Maybe the next warioware game for DS uses the paddle?

    Ahh space invaders extreme is so awesome!
    If you just ignore all the text on the top screen written in Japanese, the game still makes 100% sense.

    eBay is only a risk if you don't use PayPal, and are dumb enough not to read a seller's feedback before bidding/buying.

    Dugg for great truth.

    Although for books and videos, I'm getting steals on Amazon's secondhand section... Not sure if they do electronics as well.
