Hey guys (or gals). I have a question for you all regarding importing games. I have come to the realization that Pandoras Tower will likely not be released in NA and im feeling pretty bummed. So i've decided to import! Well at least i think. What im looking for is some advice or stores that are the best for importing from people who have done it before. I did some research and Gamestation can ship the limited edition to my house for £52. Which comes out to about 80 USD. I know you Europeans pay more for games, but this seems like a bit much... can somebody let me know if there is a better placeway to import, or is this as good as it gets?

Thanks in advance!

Yes I do. After a bit more research I'm pretty confident I'm getting the best deal i can. I'm going to put the order in later today, so if anyone has anything today before then that would be much appreciated.

For importing the game: Use Zavvi. They're the most cheaper.

Wow, zavvi is a lot cheaper! But under more details it says that it is dubbed and subbed in Spanish. Do you know if that just means the Spanish is an option? Can i still play in English?

ozgameshop.com is also pretty good. Despite what the name implies, they will ship to the USA (although I'm not sure what they charge for that). Maybe try comparing with Zavvi - I can vouch for ozgameshop too (as can half of the gamers in Australia) and they have an excellent reputation.

I used to have a blog link here. I'll put it back up when the blog has something to read.

I'm thinking maybe it is better to buy the game soon, and worry about how to actually play it later? Well, once I feel more confident an NA release isn't coming.
(I've heard Terranigma could be found rather easily new for import at reasonable prices in the late '90s. Not now, though. :( )

(already imported a copy of Earth Seeker for cheap)
