Of course we know where it's gonna be released first because we are real fortune tellers
but we won't tell it to you unless you "donate" 20 bucks to my PayPal account

I would say Europe first (They have a OFLC rating), then Japan shortly afterward, and then Super Mario Kart in North America. Mega Man and The Legend of Zelda: Majora Mask took the same step.

aww dude..
don't get me started on localization in Europe..
sure we got some (very few) games first
but there are way more games we had to wait a looong time for
and there are even ones we didn't get (WarioWare: Twisted, luckily I imported it :D )

well Super Mario Kart is coming to the Japanese VC in June. if you don't believe me check out Japan's VC list for June. So this means it's defintely coming to the American & European VC.

Does it? Because Smash Brothers 64 would beg to differ.

While I disagree with the word "definitely," I too am optimistic. I expect we'll see Mario Kart this year due to this announcement plus the OFLC rating.

Obviously Japan. It's disgusting how good they get treated by Nintendo. Has anyone noticed that Japan isn't Nintendo's most loyal market? The US is! We buy the most games and we buy the most systems. Send a little love our way Nintendo!

I'm just guessing SMK will come to U.S.A and Europe. And about Smash Brothers 64,Maybe Nintendo is going to surprise us by releasing SSB64 next week.

Heh, I doubt it, Mariofan, but I'm glad one of us is optimistic. :)

We have a larger population. If you were to figure out who buys more Nintendo games by percentage of population, Japan would almost certainly win as far as "loyalty" goes. Also, the PS3 / PSP are actually gaining a sizeable foothold in Japan, so Nintendo really can't pull any punches over there.

I'm not sure why they don't come out swinging in the West, too, but I'm no businessman. I'm sure they have their reasons... unfortunately.

Well, it is on the Japanese VC page as coming in June; course NoA and NoE tend to keep things close to the vest, so who knows?

@Sean Aaron: Well Nintendo certainly doesn't like to keep things close to the vest when it comes to Super Smash Bros 64 :P
