I GOT IT
The price in Nipponbashi was ridiculously lower than it was online. Now, still need to find the Gradius Gaiden OST before I leave…

God almighty, what a price indeed. Color me jealous! Now your used Japanese Xbox purchase has been legitimately justified beyond being the SMT: Nine machine!

Yeah, I did a double take! This is like the grand daddy of them, but are there any other worthwhile Japanese Xbox OG exclusives? (SMT:NINE is not a worthwhile J-Xbox OG exclusive)

I’m not super knowledgeable about Japanese exclusive Xbox games since even in the best of times the games that stayed in Japan weren’t really worth paying attention to from what I’ve seen. That being said, the apt, but anticlimactically named Dinosaur Hunter is pretty well regarded from I’ve read. It’s supposedly a very loose adaptation of the Arthur Conan Doyle novel The Lost World where the emphasis is less on shooting things and more on tracking the dinosaurs and whatnot. Seems pretty neat from what I’ve seen and is on my personal to-do list. Beyond that, Rent A Hero No. 1 is a Sega RPG that’s also generally well liked, although that also came out on Dreamcast. (There’s also a complete unreleased English version circulating online if you ever wanted to go down that rabbit hole of making it run.) Apparently some unique version of Castle Shikigami, Shikigami no Shiro Evolution Aka, also came out for it, although I’m personally only able to really appreciate that series in the context of the stupendously poor localization jobs the first few games got. The official Xbox collector’s thread on NeoGAF knows more than I do and this post in particular seems to have most of the other vaguely prominent ones I know of. There are more posts on Japanese in the latter half of the thread, so it might not hurt to skim it a bit.
Nothing that really screams out as a classic in the way that even Metal Wolf does, but much of it is probably still better than the dumb shit I brought back with me because of 100 game bin madness. Hope it helps!

Thanks a lot! If I see it, I’ll probably grab Dinosaur Hunter. But man, even as I was buying this stuff today all I could think of was that it was just more stuff I’ll have to pack or ship. Time is counting down!
