    So now that NTSC-J games can be played on my NTSC-U console... which ones should I check out? I know exactly ZERO Japanese, so simple or English menus are a must.

    I've currently got Kororinpa and Wing Island and I'm really liking both of them so other stuff along that line would be great.

    IMO the only two are the naruto and bleach games (which the patch dont work on anyway)

    everything else is out or will be out in english

    I doubt there's any english but it might be fairly intuitive, who knows though...

    I can't believe that nobody mentioned Pokemon Battle Revolution! It may be just me as I am a Pokemon fan but It still would be a fun game to play. It's also Wii's first online title. If you liked Pokemon Stadium 1 and 2 for N64, you'll like it.

    Don't get bleach it is a pretty boring game unless you're really interested in the story and fighting games otherwise the game play is quite boring after awhile.
    Quite a bit of loading per match. (Quite annoying to me)

    Attacks are based on swinging up down left right and jabbing pressing A or B for medium and heavy blows.
    Powerup is just shaking the nanchuk.
    And the special attack is just in powerup mode and B with one of the direction depending on character.

    It is kind of like the bleach in PSP
    No minigames

    just my opinion
    but it is the same for all fighting games anyway

    I know the US release is coming soon, but if you itching for some J gaming, Kororinpa is pretty amazing, and im grabbing > Wii #0105 - Eyeshield 21 Field no Saikyou Senshi Tachi (Japan) its supposed to be decent from what the comments said. Ill post here after I try it and let ya know, anyone think this thread should be more organized and made Sticky? I think a good database of which J games are playable for people who dont understand Japanese would be very useful.

    How about making a page on the Wiki for these sort of suggestions. We could include necessary info to play the game, motion instructions, etc.
