Is there going to be European distribution of MSX Magazine, and if so, when can we pre-order?

It's in Japanese, yes ? For me it means it's just a collectible item - because I can't read it.

Well, did you see this page ?
http://www.ascii.co.jp/pb/ant/msx/htm/eindex.htm

It clearly states the following:

"These games and MSXPLAYer are only the Japanese versions,and this book can be shipped only within Japan. It is because export to a foreign country cannot be performed by the contract."

Oops. Not for gaijins.

Never had any problem for ordering the MSX Magazine on Amazon Japan (they have an english site available), and they ship worldwide.

I got my issues no. 1 and 2 from Ikeda. They’re pretty cool to have! I guess I need to buy issue 3 as well now Smile.
