Hades: An Interior Decorator Is You

Roses are red, violets are blue, I never have enough Nectar.
There's like some 50 characters in this game that you need to raise Relationship Values with for more dialogue and story progression, and each requires at least 6ish Nectar. Would like to make a deal with Dionysus for infinite booze works.

Hades: Mythological Mishaps

Like a lot of ancient mythological pantheons, the Greek pantheon was big into incest. The game seems to have toned down this down a bit, even though we are talking about immortal gods and anthropomorphic personifications and so on so I'm not sure who would be offended.

Hades: Libera Te Tutemet Ex Inferis

Saw this on a new site (the JP version's not out yet) and apparently some friends find it fun, so off we go to make an EN Nintendo Account to access the EN eShop. The lack of region encoding in modern consoles generally makes this unnecessary except in the specific case of a download-only title that hasn't been localized; in the case of Hades, I could wait a couple of months as there is a Japanese version scheduled for release soon, but the inverse of being a snobby JRPG player is that I also prefer to play English games in the original language.

The process itself just requires you have a backup email address; you can also swap the region on your existing account, but doing so will delete forfeit any virtual money you've added, which isn't idea because if you're buying point cards to pay on the Japanese eShop you're not going to have exact amounts and will always have some leftover. Once you've downloaded the game, however, it's available to any account on the system and there's no reason to use the purchase account for actual gameplay (sort-of significant because if you're posting pictures or something your SNS is linked per account). The only real downside to this process is that having accounts in multiple regions means you get duplicate Game News articles in different languages, and since channels are shared across languages you can't turn this off.

*I could also have gotten the steam version but wasn't feeling like doing USB controller config; this is very much a controller and not keyboard/mouse game.
