I enjoyed the demo, but I'm thinking of skipping MHXX because of my very little knowledge of Japanese. But I'm currently learning Japanese anyway sooo screw it, I think I'm gonna buy MHXX and hopefully learn a little bit more kanji from it along the way

Do it. No better way to learn than to have actual contact with the language out in the wild.

Man, this looks especially awful docked. Not that I'll be playing like that 90% of the time, but still, feels worse than the Wii U releases.

Agreed. Feels less wrong on the Pro controller, but undocked I keep hitting the wrong triggers.

Had the same yesterday. Took about two hours until verification went through. Note that they didn't send me an email that it had succeeded, I checked the purchase history periodically and saw that the status went from pending to sold. You get the code directly off the amazon website, not via email.

Might be a stupid question but...

Can you transfer the saves from Generations to the Japanese version of XX too or is save transfer region locked?

It appears to be possible if you're willing to read a lot of guides, take some risks and put custom firmware on your 3DS.

Play-asia must like you better than me, they haven't shipped mine yet.

Start of a short vacation from work for me today... REALLY hard not to just download the digital version, but considering I already paid for the physical one, too much a waste of money...

Maybe I should just buy digital and sell the physical one for $40 or something once I get it.

Translating the village chief's and room service cat's dialogues took a while but it's totally manageable. It kinda feels like when I was playing Final Fantasy VIII and learning english at the same time. I'm saving the game for now, though xD

Initial playthrough by NihongoGamer. Looks so good! Not 60 fps though, maybe because it has cross play with 3ds.

This could be any number of reasons.

1) You have to use a separate JP account for Amazon.

2) You have to use a Japanese address.

You should be fine after doing the above.

How do these PC and other console games with varying frame rates even manage to get a match together, though.

I agree, it was jarring at first, and I found it uncomfortable for a while playing the demo. I think my hands have adjusted now. Just hope long play sessions don't give me hand cramps now.

So sweet :) thanks.

Here's my story: I bought Generation day one, I played like 40 hours.

Friend was in need of a 3DS and I gave him mine. I told him to be careful, he was like "sure, you don't worry dawg". When I had the thing back, my MHGEN save was gone.

Yay.

I started that thing again, because it's MH. You know what it means, going back to freaking mushrooms collectathon.

Then the worst timeline happened, and now here we are. I'm not playing the game with the usual ten wikis, this time with a heavy language barrier on top of that. I can't start the game again for the THIRD time. It's just too much.

A few years ago, I had more time for gaming and whatever hobbies, I could do that. Now, I can't. It sucks, I love this thing, but you know... notlikethis.gif

(also salty at the idea of paying Capcom for this game they refuse to localize. Fuck off, they don't deserve shit)

I just hope that MHWorld ends up being good, it's all I have at this point. Love you guys, we'll meet again, someday. :'(

Hmmm... read the save transfer process for MHGen to MHXX. Doesn't seem too bad, but I saw there is a patch to make the 3DS MHXX have english UI. It's very tempting to maybe just stay on 3DS to play with english UI or go to Switch version for HD glory.

Data transfer is possible between the two so hunt in HD and make equipment on 3DS.

The audio quality on the switch compared to the 3ds is so much better. Not sure if the audio is less compressed, or if it just sounds better when not coming from 3ds speakers. I assume it's probably both.

Any chance the save transfer works from English Generations to Japanese XX? Didn't get too far so it wouldn't be a huge deal if not, but it'd be nice...

I'm glad they at least overhauled the UI in World for item shortcuts and stuff like that. This game on Switch feels like a downgrade in that department because no attempt was made to make up for the loss of the 2nd screen. It's not a huge deal but if you're used to the quick shortcuts on 3DS you'll be sad about it when playing the Switch version.

From what I understand, there's a fairly complete English fan translation of the 3DS version. Coupled with the Japanese save transfer app, it's possible to transfer save data between the Japanese Switch release and the fan translated 3DS game. It could ease some of the language hurdles/help understand what you're doing if you prefer playing the game on a TV.

I don't think this will bug me, I just adapt and enjoy the ride 😊
