Just watched that video. He's got some serious patience, and good timing with those quick dodges.

Just watching Skyward with those Slapamanders was enough to annoy me. They gave me so much trouble during the TP, along with Mechanica's double hammers.

Do I have to create a separate account to access the Japanese shop?

You can switch your accounts region on MyNintendo but I recommend you to create a separate account and a separate user on Switch.

I think I'm going digital with this one. Very small size and midnight release worldwide (right?). I'm also thinking about selling my physical copies (MK8, Zelda,etc) and buying the digital versions. I hate switching games, lol. Especially MP games.

Guys,

Buying it from the Japanese Eshop saves like 10 bucks over buying USD?
Eh..I guess I'll get my gold coins for my main account.

I bought my first Nintendo Console in almost 20 years on Sunday and I have bought more accessories/controllers for my Switch than my last 20 years of gaming combined I think.

Now I am broke.

Glass Protector for Switch
Pro Controller
Yellow Joy-Cons
Switch Carrying Case
Joy-Con Charger
Joy-Con Grips x2
Another AC Adapter

When his arms are charged, he can ground dash until the charge wears off. This let's him go under punches and makes him the fastest character in the game by a pretty wide margin. He's pretty slow without the charge, but he does have the fastest jump movement even without it.

It's live now in Japan. When I put in in my Amazon JP code before midnight it started downloading.

I assume it will go live whenever the first midnight across the time zones of your country is.

Don't think there will be a preload. Should go live at 9pm PST.

1. Slower Dash, but fastest jumps in the game.

2. When Charged, he can perform a quickstep that dashes under attacks. I THINK he can chain quick steps together?

I'm pretty sure he can. I think he can get out 4-5 dashes before the charge wears off.

So, what's everybody's plan for the early days? Straight into online play, or farming up some gloves? I know my intention is to clear Grand Prix 4 or higher with every character before I jump into Ranked, so I know I qualify with all of them, not unlike 3-starring all cups in Mario Kart and amassing unlocks along the way. I dread doing this with Helix, though, as his default set is so unorthodox and I didn't get a good handle on him in the Testpunch.

I think it's about 52USD if you buy code from Amazon. Co.jp.

You can also download and play right now.

Which is essentially how much it'd cost if I were to do Prime/GCU. Not only that, I'd prefer to have this digitally.

That might've just pushed me over the edge.

They are human, but "woke up one day with extendable ARMS". Apparently "it's actually pretty rad".

I don't think that there is any risk but some games have Japan specific SKU's and they might not be shown when you switch back region to US/EU.
