    I'm trying to decide if I should download the NTSC-J version now, or wait for the NTSC-U version. I don't really want to wait for the NTSC-U version if there's not a high chance of it working on a PAL Wii. Since the NTSC-J version works on a PAL Wii, does that mean the NTSC-U version is likely to work also? Or are they unrelated and there's no way of knowing? I don't know anything about this sort of thing.

    I don't see why not.

    If one works why won't the other one work? Unless they rewrite the game. Just for you.

    Well i've temporarily gotten the single layer jap version, just so i can get a bit of brawling in. I will wait for the us version before i fork out a 8.5 gig download... generally if an NTSC-J game works on PAL, then an NTSC-U one does too. In all honesty, i dont think its impossible to play the game in non-english, but i would rather wait and do the non-vs mode stuff on an english version.

    Since the VS menu is exactly the same as mélée's one, i don't see the need to wait for an english release. (moreover, sonic will have his lame english va in the ntsc-us/pal versions.)

    Eh, the menus aren't really the issue for me though. Really, the only reason I want to play the English version over the Japanese version is because of David Hayter. I couldn't imagine playing Snake without his English voice actor. It'd make Snake feel so empty >_>.

    Just wondering, if you installed the update from the NTSC-U or PAL versions when they arrive and happen to feel like playing the Japanese version, will you have to run the update on it to make it work? (Installing PAL update before playing NTSC-J)
