Just go to Akihabara and hang around the thousands of shops there; many of the selling Nintendo videogames. If you like retro gaming I particularly recommend Super Potato

Yeah, as stated above, just head to Akihabara. It'll be harder to not find it there, lol. If you can't make it to Akiba, then head to Shibuya and visit Tsutaya. Lower levels have the games, and i think it's attached to the Shibuya station (it's the one with starbucks inside, you can't miss it).

Akihabara would be the first place to go, eventhough Shinjuku has a lot to offer as well.

In both akiba and shinjuku, look for Sofmap and Trader-shops. (they are everywhere)

In Akiba, Super Potato has one floor with Nintendo only; everything from virtual boy to Wii and GC=)

Good luck.

not so much an answer as another q.... 2008/6/19 21:12
Does anyone know if a Japanese Nintendo DS game would work in an Australian console? I know that Japan runs on NTSC and Aust. on PAL for VHS, but is there any difference for games?
I'd like to get a game for a friend. Also,do some games have English language settings? Any suggestions? I can pick something up in Nipponbashi(Osaka) or Akiba, I figure.

ALL DS games run on ALL DS. NTSC/PAL issue does not matter because DS does not use TV.

I think few Japanese games have English mode.

This very much depends on the type of game you are looking for.
I would NOT recommend RPG's (role playing games) or adventures, as they are normally heavy on text/dialogue.

On the other hand, if you're after an action/racing-game, the only speech/text you will hear is ''3, 2, 1, GO!'' :-)

Happy hunting!

NDS games are not region locked and some of the older games, for example the older Phoenix Wright games have the English included.
