I go out and buy One Piece: Unlimited Adventure, and what do you do? You announce One Piece: Unlimited Cruise is being released exclusively for Europe. And what does NA get? More Narutard crap. What do I have to do to get this game over here??!

I buy Klonoa, and what happens? You announce it sold less than 1000 copies. What in the world is wrong with you??!

All I can say is: WWWHHHYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?!

Import, homebrew channel is easy and relatively risk free.
Hell if it is that big of a deal, I can go buy it for you, and send it over. And you can send me something in return.

Having no marketing whatsoever truly hurt Klonoa. I don't care if it was only $30. I fear a worse fate for The Munchables.

It had marketing. It had commercials for both TV and Radio (more than can be said for other non-licensed games by them, i.e. Tales of etc).

Side note: I don't use homebrew. I rarely use emulation.

It would also help to get the games in stores as I've had a heck of a time finding Munchables. I finally found one today at a Toys R Us of all places.

And no way Klonoa sold only 1000 copies as the Gamestop here sold through their stock of it in three days.

Plain old gamer :)

@Corbie: I know! I got the last copy they had at the mall! I was just as surprised to hear it supposedly sold so few...

From the looks of it Klonoa only sold about 14,801 copies. So much for Klonoa 3.

I rule when it comes to games. So deal with it.

Namco hates money and/or gamers (which makes no sense, since Namco is a company that produces video games). It's a crapshoot as to which Tales games are going to come out and to which systems. Seriously, Namco, I would love to drop $50 on your next Tales game! Just give me the ability to!

On a related note: if Namco doesn't localize Tales of Graces, I'm gonna start a riot.

Well, they're both budget releases so they might have a longer shelf life than some titles; I do think Namco needs to do something about European distribution though. Unlike North America their European arm is solely arcade focused, so the Namco games that turn up here tend to be distributed by other companies like Atari -- probably why the game the OP is wanting is here instead of there: Namco-Bandai in NA wasn't interested maybe.

I've got an idea, go to their website mail their support asking if they plan a release!

Well, Klonoa is a steal for $28, no matter how much it sells.

One Piece: Unlimited Adventure is a budget title? Imagine that! Launches in 11 days. Budget price in Sweden though, means it is 48USD. So you might wanna import from the UK or something.

I completely forgot about the SoulCalibur franchise! Namco, why do you insist on keeping it from us? We came out in droves and bought the Gamecube SCII port. What, are you afraid we won't support you? Namco, just look at how we support Nintendo. We'll buy anything that has Mario, Link, or Samus in it. All you have to do is put Link (and possibly another character, I vote Marth) in the game and we will buy it, guaranteed.

While they could do better, I'm a happy camper, because we're getting an Wii exclusive Dragonball adventure! They aren't my favorite supporter, but they're much better then let's say 2K Sports.

The Naruto part is Bandai's fault. Namco usually makes the good stuff. And it's not like they can help it that Klonoa is hardly selling. Though it should have sold at least more than 1000. That many units on a system that's sold in the millions just doesn't sound right at all...

@Gameking. I will buy 10,000 copies of Klonoa to support the creation of Klonoa 3!

OK Twilight, here's what I recommend!
Providing you have a 480p TV (PAL will possibly display in black and white on an analog set)
Click here, then here, and when the game comes out, Click here
