Import Goodies, Round 1!

I got some Amazon gift cards for Christmas this year, and I wanted to spend them on something I couldn’t really get in any stores around me! (Okay, okay, I pre-ordered Poochy and Yoshi’s Woolly World so I was guaranteed to get that sweet Poochy amiibo…) I decided to look around for some games that I could import just to further my collection a bit. I ended up buying 5 games for around $60, which isn’t bad at all!

The first game that came in was トモダチコレクション, which is Tomodachi Collection! It was released for the Nintendo DS in 2009. And since the DS isn’t region locked, I can play it on my DS with no issues!


I was drawn to this game because I really love Tomodachi Life, which is the sequel to Tomodachi Collection! I know the games are very similar, but that’s okay with me. It’ll be interesting to see how this fun and quirky franchise began! Plus, it’ll be a great way to learn some more Japanese.


I’ll write about the other games as I get them in. This particular game came from the U.S., so it didn’t take that long to get to me. All the other games are coming from Japan, so I probably won’t receive them until late February/ early March. I can’t wait! 🙂

  1. That’s so cool! I had fun with Tomodachi Life, but I never really knew much about its predecessor. How exciting that you imported it! I look forward to hearing more about it!

  2. Wow, I didn’t even realize there was another Tomodachi game out there! Good to know! I haven’t played Tomodachi Life as of yet… but I want to!! So you pre-ordered Poochy and Yoshi’s Woolly World?? I wondered if you would!! 😉

    1. I think you would like Tomodachi Life! It’s so funny and weird. I never realized there was a prequel either until I did some research… and since it was pretty cheap, I figured importing it would be fun! Oh yes, I definitely pre-ordered Poochy and Yoshi’s Woolly World! It’s supposed to be delivered tomorrow, and I have it being shipped to my work (I meant to change it to my home address but I forgot… I had Michael’s Christmas gifts sent to my work!). I don’t have to work tomorrow but I still might pop up there to get it. I want that Poochy amiibo so bad lol!

      1. Did you end up getting the Poochy amiibo? It looks totally YOU!! LOL. He’s adorable, that’s for sure! I bet the Poochy and Yoshi’s Wooly World is amazing! Have you already done a post on it yet? I need to look if so!! Is it just like the Yoshi’s Woolly World only with added features like Poochy? I hope you are enjoying it! Let me know!! That’s funny that you forgot to change your home address from your work to your new home one!! All your goodie packages were at work instead of home!! ha..

      2. Yes, and I love the Poochy amiibo so much! I think besides the Mega Yarn Yoshi, it is my favorite amiibo! It’s so cute I almost can’t stand it! 😉 I did a post on me getting the game and the amiibo, but I haven’t started playing the game yet!

  3. Amazon gift cards are the best present! I got a bunch of them myself and spent it all in about five minutes. I’ve never been more proud of myself 😀

    I’ll have to look up that game! It sounds familiar, but I don’t know a lot about that franchise.

    1. Haha yeah my gift cards tend to be spent pretty quickly as well! 😉 Tomodachi Life is a super weird, quirky game. You basically make little “look-alikes” of yourself and whoever else you want and they go about their daily lives… some really silly, crazy things tend to happen!
