I must be crazy. I am currently wondering if there are Japanese only 3DS worth to justify the purchase of a Japanese system.

My current interests goes towards action games, adventures and RPGs, and of course, shmups (is there any for the 3DS). Maybe interesting puzzles. No ADVs (I am getting Time Travellers on Vita), no sports games.

Any suggestions?

I got my JP 3DS back in August.

I own Gundam 3D Battle, Virus Shooter, Senran Kagura, and Theatrhythm.

I ordered Taiko 3DS and Senran Kagura 2. Project X Zone and Lost Heroes look like two good games, and I hear Dragon Quest Monsters Rocket Slime 3 is good as well as Monster Hunter 3G. Little Battlers eXperience just came out for 3DS in Japan too if that interests you. I don't know Japanese so some of these games aren't as enjoyable to me lol.

It just all depends what you are interested in.

Don't know if it's any good, but it seems cool: "Nazo Waku Yakata" from Capcom, which is sort of a variety comedy horror minigame and puzzle collection that uses an awesome surround sound technique for the audio.

If he's interested in those games I suggest buying a PSP. They're cheap, region-free and the sequel to the 3DS LBX game is on PSP (as is the 3DS LBX game).

Out at the minute:

Senran Kagura
Project Mirai
Code of Princess
Taiko no Tatsujin

Coming later this year:

Senran Kagura Burst
Project X Zone
Lost Heroes
Kokuga

At the minute, honestly, I couldn't be without my Japanese 3DS. Do bear in mind though that the stuff that remains unlocalised is fairly niche, likewise with that list of upcoming releases. If you're buying mainly to have games earlier, it's not all that worth it as most 3DS games have come out worldwide. Fan of the more niche genres? Definitely consider it. Plus, you get access to the eShop which has some Japan-exclusive games and more to come in future.

3DS is amazing in Japan right now. If you have the means and the language isn't a barrier, then you can't go wrong.

There are probably easily more Japan-exclusive games at the moment that I want than games I already have (10).

Only Episode 1 (half of the game; Episode 2 will be a separate release). With region locking, it might as well count.

I don't want to buy another 3ds, but it looks so tempting...

How can you add funds to buy stuff from the Japanese eShop? Do you need a Japanese credit card or is there some way to buy codes from prepaid cards online? I used to buy from maximuscards but they sell only us codes

Do you have a PSP? You could probably snag a copy of Boost cheaper than Explosive Boost and you won't miss anything since the latter's big addition are multiplayer features.

Wow that's an impressive list. If the eShop sells DD versions of all 3DS games and not just Nintendo games only, I might have to buy a Japanese 3DS. It will be a lot cheaper than importing and paying shipping.
