@Blast RPGs only make a big difference to Japanese gamers, I think we can agree. The Nintendo DS had a lot of RPGs but I think a lot of them were one-offs, save for Etrian Odyssey which made the jump to 3DS. For some reason, RPGs number only a few for 3DS. I think that, for some reason, it was a lot easier for companies to release games for Nintendo DS, but it became a flood of games and since it was so heavily pirated, they strayed away from Nintendo systems because they are easier to hack than Sony's.

All you commenters are making it hard for me to resist paying $50 for this game. You couldn't just talk trash about it so I wouldn't get so hyped for it and be able to wait for it to go on sale for 29.99 LOL! This is such a charming looking/sounding game! Also, the alchemist part is basically a simplified version of the Atelier series, am I right?!!

Am I the only one who sees no difference between the versions in the photos? I see the text is in a different font and I imagine the image will be in 3D but nothing is redrawn which is a letdown. Professor Layton Vs. Phoenix Wright has such high production values that this trilogy will pale in comparison.

Both the eshop and standard limited eds. are $49.99, right? Why's it so expensive? You know atlus has eshop sales all the time. I'll just wait for it to go down to 29.99. That's how I got Conception II and SMT IV.

As I have access to the DS versions already and played thru Justice For All and 4/5 of the first one, I'd like to know how much new content, if any, is in this re-release. I dunno how it'll be playing thru the same cases twice. I played them exactly a year ago so I guess I'll wait until I forget what happens LOL

I just wonder if this will affect Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate's Multiplayer Online Quests. If it becomes an issue, I can and will solo the game as I have done with Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. I will solo all the quests first before I do them online with others. Playing online also lowers the difficulty by nature since you have 3 people helping you.

Why would people want to buy Japanese games if they can't read 'em? What games are EU-exclusive? I find plenty enough to play that's available, thank-you.

@galachef55 Thanks! I procrastinated hunting Dire Miralis for the 5 Gushing Magma needed for the Ishtar for so long but it actually became easier than I thought. It took a long time, but wasn't too tough. My most successful Dire Miralis run is about 40 mins. with the Stygian Superbia dual blades. Now, Alatreon remains my biggest challenge...

Defeated Dire Miralis in the lake part yesterday. It's easier to carve b/c you can see where to go, whereas on land it is hard to tell which part your hunter is standing in: head, body, or tail so I don't get as many carves as I ran out of time running around. Upgraded to the Shining Ishtar gunlance yesterday, too :) 552 raw, 450 poison, baby!

@Iggly I always bring 10 honey even if I don't end up using them. I usually just avoid Alatreon and Dire Miralis hunts altogether :b although I would like the Gushing Magmas necessary to finish upgrading the G.Rathian poison gunlance, however the lucent poison gunlance has been helpful with 30% affinity but less poison.

@Iggly thank-you for this helpful new knowledge. I usually use Mega potions whenever I take damage but of course it heals red health first which makes it heal less green health. Do you also bring 10 Potions and 10 honey like I do? That way it's like carrying 20 Mega potions. Also, there's not usually enough time to take two healing items consecutively but I guess I could make it work. I also bring farcaster (and 10 combinable) to Abyssal Lagi fights and sometimes don't end up using any Mega potions at all b/c I just keep using the base camp bed.

Umm, MonHun would have been my choice for LAST summer but I guess it's ok since Animal Crossing is here, too, and I'm playing it now. Also, I know Fire Emblem: Awakening did well for the survival of the franchise but it's the most shallow and forgettable story in the FE universe. It's as if Intelligent Systems had to dumb down the story for a new audience. It's a good thing they're working on something else; S.T.E.A.M., which looks promising as Nintendo's answer to Borderlands. NLife should only include 2014 games on this list. Really? FE:A came out in 2013 and you're not putting Kirby 3DS on this list? And MonHun3U is the reason I bought a Vita so I could play Freedom Unite which is nice but really needed the updated controls the IOS version received (ie. Lock-on camera).

Free-to-play, or not; I just don't know how excited I am about a submarine shooter although I will say it sounds more interesting than a lot of eshop titles. For eshop, the best games are the retail ones when they go on sale ;)
