    Hi all,

    What are the best Japanese games available that are easy to play (i.e. i can't read japanese) and fun? i remember as a kid playing parodius long before it was available in english on my super famicom and it was GREAT :-)

    Cheers

    Pinky

    If you like rhythm games, try the Osu! Tatakae! Ouedan! series. it's the same franchise as Elite Beat Agents. Nodame Cantabile is fun too.

    JUS. Just best DS game.

    Osu! Tatakae! Ouedan!>>>Moero! Nekketsu Rhythm Damashii Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan 2>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>EBA

    Chou Shoujuu Mecha MG - just best TPS on console. Also it looks like it's only 'traditional' mecha-action on console.
    Just check: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y98L3RRBmVE

    Super Robot Taisen W. it IS ROBOT TAISEN FTW!!!!! Shame on every1 who forgot about that.

    Don't you need to be fluent in Japanese to play Super Robot Taisen?


    Anyway, my recommendations are:

    Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan!
    Pinky Street Kirakira Music Hour
    Pinky Street Kirakira Music Night
    Jump! Ultimate Stars
    Puchi Puchi Virus
    Bleach DS 2nd

    Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan, as peple have mentioned, is a brilliant game.
    I would recommend GS4 but that's completely text based so to get full enjoyment from the game you have to be fluent in Japanese [​IMG] BUT you can just... guess, I suppose [​IMG] I've been playing about 2 weeks, no walkthrough, no knowledge of the Japanese language and I'm on Case 3 [​IMG]
    Any of the other in the GS series (GS1/2/3(which have english options)) (Gyakuten Saiban) AKA Phoenix Wright are amazing. But they're not Japanese... so... uh... But it's made in Japan, so technically it's a Japanese game [​IMG]
    Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan 2 is also a very good game. I dunno which one is better, but number 2 has better multiplayer, so overall probably a "better" game.

    This probably hasn't helped you much as most of the above have already been suggested [​IMG] but whatever (PS Phoenix Wright is amaaaaazing [​IMG] )

    Puzzle Bobble DS!!! (there are two though. Make sure you get the one simply called puzzle bobble DS. It also has an awesome remix of the bubble bobble theme.

    And Puyo Puyo 15 anniversary. One of the characters sort of looks like it would be a human version of the girl in my avatar. I always use that character.
