you should be able to download this game for free too
I had no idea Japan had different GwG titles however they seem like games that were previously free in our region. I.e. Battleblock Theatre was a GwG title not too long ago - also a really fun couch coop game.

3 years ago was when it was free for everyone. Check the latest for this month, it's BattleBlock for the 360 in Japan.

Edit: as an aside, even though it's showing as free for Gold members on the JP page, when I try to check out it's still showing as $14.99 for me (in Chrome, with page translation turned on)

Don't worry - I get that. My comment was trying to explain that it was previously free 3 years not (which isn't "not too long ago").

I can't download it either, shows as free but then tries to charge me $14.99. I'll try again tonight when I'm at home behind an VPN.

I don't mean this particular game, I'm asking about any free games - without a membership.

Thanks OP! Silly question - but the game itself is in English, correct? I'm going to pass this along to my son.

I just tried it out, it's the full game in English and actually pretty good. There's some serious educational value there too for kids and dad's who watch Animal Planet all day ;-)

It has nothing on Viva Pinata though.
