My copy of Taiko Drum Master 3DS arrived today, it's bundled with two adorable styli - both which are a lot more substantial (and thus can be held more like the real drumstick) than I had expected!

Good choice! I have Taiko no Tatsujin DS, which also comes with two completely pointless, albeit robust drumsticks.

Cheers! Really enjoying it so far, and I've finally gotten the hang of using the mini drumsticks. Though I think it'd probably work better on a 3DS XL.

Surprised there's no DLC from Namco/'Scamco' on this game, especially after it was released after Nintendo made DLC available to third party developers. The PSP Taiko no Tatsujin has around 200-odd songs available to purchase, and the 3DS tracklist is a bit slim.

I've picked up Senran Kagura: Shinovi Versus and Hatsune Miki: Project Diva f recently.

The latter has made me really want to import Project Mirai on 3DS. Must...resist...

I'm not sure why this is retro. Anyway since 2013 I've not really imported much part from my Slim Blue VITA direct from Japan along with buying a odd thing like my American copy of Ocarina of Time on GameCube but that was just something that turned up on eBay in the UK cheap.

I've always wanted to get into the import scene and thought I may do it for the VITA but jumping back in years after launch, I was overwhelmed by how many games are available and the consistent supply games of games coming to the system.

Could have looked at importing games bar Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 for PS4 but its missing that something, I'm now looking at the Switch and things like Has Been Heroes getting a retail release at GameStop (they are publishing the game) and Dragon Quest X which I very much doubt will come to the west, and I'm now thinking could be cool to finely start looking at imports and the Switch much like the VITA has that sort of something that is enticing me to do so.

Anyone else looking at maybe importing games for the Switch and I guess do you have any cool imports?

Jo and I have talked about buying Switch games on our honeymoon but I'm not sure I will - it'll depend on the exchange rate.

Not sure if this reply is truly retro... Eh?

That's the thing we can now do that, which is proper good.

I've only ever imported two games and they were both Resident Evil 4!

In January 2005 it was the Gamecube version (thanks to the Freeloader!) and then last week I picked up Resident Evil 4 HD for $15 (after an American friend gave me an Amazon voucher for Christmas - but you can only use it on the American site). Resident Evil 4 HD on PS4 hovers around the 20 mark at the moment, which is OK but having tried the game, I don't think I'll be playing it much. It's hard to go back to after the brilliant Wii controls.

There aren't really many games these days that are released in the USA months before the UK. I'm not really interested in Japanese imports myself.

Depends as like I say Has Been Heroes will likely be a USA only retail exclusive unless European GameStops stock it and if you prefer physical then that is the only way to go.

Would stuff from Limited Run and I am 8bit etc count as imports?
