If it is playable in the NA region, then I wouldn't have a problem with that.
So just to be clear, are any Japanese games available for nomination? Even ones at haven't been rereleased, aren't translated, and aren't even the slightest bit popular. I know most people won't vote for me but sometimes I might want to nominate some stupid stuff.

January 11th Nintendo Direct Mini
Mario Tennis Aces really seems like the evolution of Mario Tennis Ultra Smash, which was more like a technical beta than a full game. Honestly I've been thinking about that a lot lately and it's sad Nintendo was willing to release something that unfinished and barebones. It proves to me that they aren't against shovelware garbage and makes me fear for their future. This one will be better.

Also Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze coming to Switch now. It's definitely the right move, but it's they are burying the Wii-U's future appeal even more. At least N64 still has exclusives. By the time Switch is done Wii-U seriously might not have anything but slightly worse versions of Switch, 360, and PS3 games. Wonderful 101 and Starfox Zero are still there though.

Exciting new Game of the Month Changes
No more region locking is e most exciting part of this. I can vote for anything. Taz Express, Habu Shogi, Indiana Jones, you name it. Doesn't mean people will vote them but it is still exciting

2017 Awards - Game of the Year (Modern Console)
I think I know where these votes are going with the year Nintendo had (3D World won 2013?), so Cuphead gets my courtesy vote. :coffee:

Wave Race - January Game of the Month
Another game I've only played for about 10 minutes. All I know about it is that the water is supposedly impressive as hell, even though I've forgotten what it looks like, and I remember the voices being surprisingly clear for an early game. It was one of the first 13 games ever revealed for N64 at Shoshinkai 1995 so it is an OG Player, and back then the game didn't use Jet Skis, it used weird transforming hovercrafts kinda like Diddy Kong Racing.

@ 46 seconds

I've never done any research on the game but I think Jet Ski's were a good decision for showing off water physics better. Hovering wouldn't be as cool as bouncing along with all the tiny waves. Maybe I'll have free time this year to play it.

2017 Awards - The Young Blood Award
Mymee64 joined in September last year so she's technically not eligible, though she didn't start posting until Janruary where she posted a lot of peppy posts about her pickups then stopped, The number of new members who have gone past 10 posts is surprisingly low. Last to reach 100 before Mymee was me.
