Have you ever seen an awesome trailer for a game and went straight to Google to find out when it's coming out? How many times have you found out that the game you're looking forward to has no planned release in your realm of the world? I was reminded of that today. It really is a huge disappointment. Maybe not as discouraging as games getting canceled, but at least you can hope for a fan translation or an import from Japan. How much does Rosetta Stone cost anyway? Before I make another product reference, I think I should just get to the list:
Maybe you can tell by my banner, but I have been a fan of the Fire Emblem series since I played Marth in Super Smash Bros. Melee. It's a fun game if you're into turn-based strategy games and stages that take forever to finish. Several of the games in this series never crossed the Pacific, especially the highly regarded games on the SNES.
I have heard it described as Super Smash Bros. with anime characters. I'm not really into anime and I've never picked up a manga, but I wouldn't mind playing this game. I'd probably play Yusuke Urameshi, since I did like Yu Yu Hakusho or maybe Goku or Vegeta for some "Over 9000" laughs. I only wish some Fullmetal Alchemist characters could be in this or its sequel.
Earthbound is a quirky game, and I have known some people who were pretty good fans of this title. People can only hope for a sequel to come to the US. At least some Earthbound fanatics have translated this game into an English version. I could seriously make another Smash Bros. reference here.
This would have to be the ultimate puzzle game. Professor Layton *and* Phoenix Wright in the same game? With fully animated cutscenes? This game looks to good to be true. Unfortunately, it is. There still are no plans for this game to come stateside. At least Phoenix was given a voice in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3.
Are you kidding me? A Mega Man MMO? Sign me up! I have loved Mega Man games since I was six-years-old. Unfortunately, this game was only planned for Korea (if it ever comes out at all.) C'mon now, Capcom! Stop teasing us with these games! Whatever happened to Mega Man Universe and Mega Man Legends 3?
