    Default Japanese only releases?

    My friend is going to Japan and will visit the super potato store in Akihabara for me (great retro store) and is going to try to find some japanese titles for me there.

    I was wondering if you could help me list games that wasnt released in the west. Im mainly looking for shoot em ups, puzzle and plattformers.

    Basically anything that can be played with little japanese knowledge.

    Sank u!

    There's quite a number of Japanese-only releases, but a few that I think are worth your time would be..

    For shooters:
    -Battlemania 2
    -Eliminate Down
    -Gley Lancer

    For platformers:
    -Doraemon (it's whimsical.. but fairly enjoyable)
    -Monster World IV

    For puzzlers/misc.:
    -Megapanel
    -Puyo Puyo 2
    -Rainbow Islands Extra
    -Shi Kin Jo
    -Snow Bros. (good luck finding a copy)

    Magical Flying Hat Turbo Adventure. Seriously, it's a sequel to Psycho Fox on the Master System - one of the best games for the system. It was sadly bastardised into DeCap Attack, a vastly inferior Westernisation. Its kanji title is apparently 'Majikaru Hatto no Buttobi Taabou! Daibouken'.



    Best box ever! =D

    Comedy option: Junkers High.

    I hear you. The graphics feel much cleaner and the music sounds a lot better.

    Most yankees assume it is when something isn't released in NA.

    Its on my must own list. However its also released in Europe. Ill try to grab it of tradera.se later. When it shows up it usually ends at half the price compared to ebay.
