Question about FMA PS2 game...  
Well, I just successfully modded my PS2, and of course this means I can finally import other games ...

Sooo basically I was wondering how much Japanese skill is really needed to successfully play the FMA PS2 (or the GBA) game. Mine is incredibly limited (just what I've gleaned from watching anime, and I know kana, but very very little kanji), and I've been debating whether or not it's worth it to import it or just wait for it to come out domestically (I imagine that it eventually *would*, since it's by Square-Enix, and the anime's so popular it's just a matter of time...) but who knows when that will be ...

Any help'd be appreciated. Thanks!

I kinda doubt there'll be a local release. As for how much Japanese you'll need to know, well... it's an action-adventure RPG-type game, so you probably don't need to know too much Japanese to play. Hit and miss with the menu's will get you through (although you may well find a GameFAQ or some such about it.) and other'n that, you'll be able to do the gameplay whilst having blissfully no idea what the hell they're all talking about. ;D

I wanted to download this game, myself. I did so for Ghost in the Shell for the PS2, and also the Naruto PS2 game. Both, well. I don't understand a lick of it, but the gameplay works fine. Plus the Naruto game is hellaciously fun. Very Super Smash Bros. like.

But anyway, if you just want to see the gameplay and the pretty anime cut scenes, then you should be fine. Buuut you probably won't have a clue as to what's going on. But hey, it's FMA goodness!
