I might go for that Shin Megami Tensei 3DS. Gives me about three months to save up. Really looking forward to Youkai Watch, too.
I want SMT4 and Layton so much *w*
*cry* who knows when or if SMT4 will reach our shores :(

I am hopeful that Youkai Watch comes outside Japan! Same devs that made Ni No Kuni :)
Pretty interesting that Nintendo had this scheduled not long after the PS4 press release.

I am really excited for North America to get Zelda Oracle of Ages/Seasons. I have not played those games in a long time. I would be happy to. You can never get enough Zelda!

Don't just credit LEVEL-5 for Ni no Kuni D:

They're also the masterminds behind the Professor Layton games and they've also developed the game adaptations of the Inazuma Eleven series. Though, the latter is only available in Japan and Europe. A friend of mine constantly laments the lack of American localisation for those games and I've never seen them locally.

Complaining aside, I really do hope that it does appear in local regions. It's a lot more likely, what with LEVEL-5 recently opening an international studio in the US.
Oh yea and Prof Layton too haha tho not a real fan of Prof Layton (the game just makes me feel stupid and dumb).
Inazuma - no interest since it relates to football (and probably why it works in europe haha).

But yea I'm hopeful for Youkai Watch! :D
Your Japanese lesson for the day is the word Tomodachi, or ともだち. It means friend.

Me too, I love both of those games a lot! :D
Did I miss the North American "Nintendo Direct"? Or did it not end up taking place?
It was just the japanese one.
I'm hoping Euro and US do one soon, to talk about upcoming 3rd party games, like Bravely Default ;)

There was one on the 14th, did you see that one? That's the latest and the best. XD
@PastaFriend I did see that one, I guess we'll have to wait if there is a North American video upcoming
