  1. Is the English version of this out yet? I can’t find it on the Nintendo EShop. Do I need to buy the Japanese version then update it? Sorry I hope this isn’t annoying; I’m just a little confused.

    1. So it seems like there are some delays with the international release. But if you already have the JP version you can get the patch and use it with that version.
