    Nintendo To help localize a bunch of 3DS games for the West

    Nintendo to help Japanese companies bring their 3DS games West | Joystiq


    In order to boost the number of new games coming to the 3DS, Nintendo plans to work with Japanese third parties to bring their games to the North American and European markets. "Among those third-party titles both developed and published in Japan, there have been some games which Nintendo published in Europe, including the Professor Layton series," president Satoru Iwata explained in a presentation today. "We will increase the number of such games for the U.S. market as well as in Europe. We are also willing to flexibly assist third-party developers in distributing their valuable games overseas." In other words, Nintendo will outright publish more games from other companies, and assist in the distribution of others.

    It's a simple plan, one that could result in the localization of games that third party publishers would find too expensive to localize and market on their own. Ideally, this would involve games like Bravely Default and Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney; Nintendo's generally reliable curation means we're still safe from humiliating cheesecake ninja game Senran Kagura.

    I'm glad that Sony and Nintendo are starting to localize more. More specifically I'm glad that we're getting a remake of Kingdom Hearts in it's Final Mix version.

    My posts can be humorous or serious, but it's up to you to decide which posts are which.

    just good games that can't be brought to the US/UK Due to money reasons i guess.
