Seems I'll be importing another PSP game soon

The name of the PSP game that I'll likely be importing: Airu de Puzuruu.

Those of you who are Monster Hunter fans may know that in Japan the series' adorably devious-looking cat characters are known as "airu." (In other regions, they're called "felynes.")

Unlike the last airu/felyne spin-off title, the Animal Crossing-esque Monster Hunter DiaryAiru de Puzuruu will be--surprise!--a puzzler.

It won't be just any old puzzler, though. According to various sources (namely, Airu de Puzuruu will be based on Capcom's vaunted Puzzle Fighter series.

Given my dual love of the airu/felyne characters and of puzzle games, you can rest assured that yours truly will be picking up a copy of this title shortly after it hits the streets of Japan on July 19.

(We all know there's not a snowball's chance in hell of Airu de Puzuruu making it to the States, so why bother waiting?)

Those cats are just adorable aren't they? I'm a total sucker for Airu related merchandise ^^~

They are, Kimimi! I really wish one or both of the MonHun Diary games had been brought to the States, or at least Europe, as I think the airu/felyne characters are completely adorable. Oh, well, at least I'll probably be able to enjoy this one without knowing a lick of Japanese :)

I subscribe to the "if it's got a felyne on it, I gotta buy it!" philosophy ;) This looks adorable, plus it's going to be launching at a budget price! How can you say no to that?

Puzzle Fighter with cats? I'm sold. Or I would be if I could play it on a home console, cuz multiplayer is essential for Puzzle Fighter.

Ah, I thought you might be interested in this one, Anne. Glad to know I was right :) I'm really hoping the budget price in Japan means I'll be able to pick it up here on the cheap (or at least cheap-ish), too.

I'm a wus, warp, so I tend to play puzzlers by myself. I can understand wanting to play with people who actually are good at the game, though :)
