I am probably way behind the times here, but I found out last night that Nintendo’s handheld game consoles are not region encoded. I think I may have been aware of this fact at some point, but this was made eminently relevant when I read a post over at Inverted Castle about Five Japanese Gameboy Games Worth Importing. I immediately ran over to play-asia.com to purchase as many of those awesome looking bit Generation games as I felt was justafiable in one go. I’m now eagerly anticipating Coloris, Soundvoyager, Dialhex and Digidrive. I would have ordered Orbital as well, but it’s in-stock status said a week rather than 24 hrs.
