The Japan-exclusive franchise Itadaki Street could very well be on its way to North America next year, if Surfer Girl Reviews Star Wars is to be trusted. Yes, we know, with a name that ridiculous, it can be kind of hard to believe such a claim. But, you know, the blog has some good karma in the bank...

Having never come out in the US, the Itadaki Street franchise is somewhat of a mystery. But the series has been thrust into our attention with its entry on the DS and the included Mario and Dragon Quest characters. We know we like the characters, and we are vaguely aware of a board game of some kin...

Sure, we've known for awhile now the wide range of different characters that would be available in Itadaki Street, but now our imagination gives way to reality. The crew over at Siliconera have posted a video detailing the process of character creation in the game, giving us all who've sat for hours...

Confession time! We haven't played a Dragon Quest game since the first one. And that was in the ancient times-- we were basically playing it on an oscilloscope. As such, we don't know any of the characters besides slimes (who could forget slimes?).If you're like us (old and anachronistic), you might...

Of course, we all knew folks from the Dragon Quest series, as well as Nintendo alumni Mario and the gang, would be making an appearance in the game.We've...

Itadaki Street DS apparently didn't have enough characters to choose from-- the entire Mario and Dragon Quest casts are just too limiting, you know? Besides, nobody can relate to wacky characters like a plumber and a plumber's brother, who is also a plumber. Square Enix has nicely included some char...

We don't usually sit around wishing we lived in Japan, but sometimes there's an overriding temptation that throws everything into a tailspin ... and wouldn't you know that dastardly Square Enix is behind it. The source of our agony? That the fabulous franchise festival known as the Square Enix Party...

Square Enix's Itadaki Street DS, schedule for this summer in Japan, is shaping up to be a pretty good looking little game. We can't wait to see more on the WiFi multiplayer, since that's what board games are built for. Is it too much to hope that this one sees an English release? Ponder that while y...

You know how we are about Square Enix around here. If the SE collective trundled over and popped us in the face, we'd be all right with that. At least, we could get over it. Because we're fans, you know? Serious fans. Which is why we can't resist bringing you all the scans and screens and Square Eni...

Remember those recent Itadaki Street scans? Dedicated Nintendo fan and amazing translator CTU Kyoto has put them all into English for your reading pleasure. Now you can read all about the Volcano of Death and Jessica's "charming assets" without flipping back and forth through a kanji reference until...
