If you're on Android and are already using the Japanese version after following our guide, you'll be able to automatically update the app by downloading it on the Google Play store - the old version will be replaced and your user data retained.
Android users will also be pleased to note that the new update - 1.1.1 - solves the annoying upper case text issue that was present in previous versions.
iOS users who followed the same guide will need to re-download using their original iTunes account (not the Japanese one used to obtain the app in the first place) but fear not - as long as you've connected your Nintendo Account your progress will be retained and carried across.
