Oh well. 5990 is still a solid price for Monster Hunter.
Lol you guys missed the 20% discount. Was 4800 not too long ago.
Do it. No better way to learn than to have actual contact with the language out in the wild.
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
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.
Bought it off amazon.jp.
Now I gotta wait for them to verify something. Gimme my damn code!
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.
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?
Play-asia must like you better than me, they haven't shipped mine yet.
Got an email from PlayAsia saying it's shipped! I'm hyyyype!
For the record I don't speak or read Japanese but I've been known to import for the love of the franchise.
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.
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.
In that case I'm out. The awkward placement of those buttons makes handheld mode impossible to use. What were they thinking? Geez
So sweet :) thanks.
Nooooo Pila, we needs yoo! 8O
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.
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. :'(
Data transfer is possible between the two so hunt in HD and make equipment on 3DS.
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.
I'm finding it really difficult to play Generations on the 3DS having seen so much of World and having tried XX on the Switch. So close to caving, even if it means having to start over from scratch...someone....talk me out of it. Pls.
I don't think this will bug me, I just adapt and enjoy the ride 😊
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.
