Topic: Wii games that haven't been localised

Posts 1 to 20 of 29


At this point its unlikely that we'll see any more games localised for the Wii that we don't know of so which Wii games do you wish were released in your region, Wiiware games can be included too. Here are mine in order of how much I would want to play them:
1. Tales of Graces
2. Captain Rainbow
3. Zangeki no reginleiv
4. Pole's big adventure (Wiiware)
5. Project zero IV: Mask of the lunar eclipse
6. Castle of Shikigami III

1)Captain Rainbow
2)Captain Rainbow
3)Captain Rainbow
4)Captain Rainbow
5)Captain Rainbow
6)Captain Rainbow

I felt kind of bad giving Captain Rainbow to the 6th place, but it's the only way it fits in with all the other games on my list.

Captain Rainbow, Castle of Shikigami III, Octopus Panic (I think that's the English name) and Excite Bots. I actually had Captain Rainbow briefly, but couldn't see playing a game using a translated walk through. I also had Castle of Shikigami III and Excite Bots when I had an American Wii. I'll probably get the middle two from Japan when I'm feeling more flush since I don't need to understand the story, but it really vexes me that a great game like Excite Bots only had an American release. Lame!


I want poles big adventure, the mystery dungeon games, capt. Rainbow, and la mulana

Actually, Excitebots was released in Japan as a Club Nintendo reward.

Shocked to see Trauma Team hasn't been mentioned by any European yet.

I'm surprised seeing Pokemon Mystery WiiWare mentioned once.

Shame I don't have a Japanese club Nintendo account; even if I dd there's no way I'd ever have enough points for it. It really would be nice if the Wii U was at least region-free for Wii games...

Here's for hoping.

Well I just mailed Nintendo about localising Excitebots again. I'm unaware of any upcoming first-party releases before Wii U launch, so this would be a nice one I reckon. I've seen I can get the Japanese version (which includes online play - seems odd for a club Nintendo bonus) both used and new via eBay, but that's a last resort.

I suppose Nintendo could always do stuff like this via the online Wii U shop rather than retail, but I'm not getting my hopes up for that either.


How do people here go about getting import games? Are there sites or forums where you find deals?

I've worked out a few informal trades on other Nintendo-focused forums, but haven't found many people interested in international trades. Too bad, because that sometimes gives better value to both sides. When I can't find a trade, I typically just buy new from sites like Zavvi or eBay.

There are still a couple of games I'd really like get that haven't been localized or announced for North America. On Wii, I'm most interested in Project Zero 2 and Fatal Frame 4, but have little hope for the former and no hope for the latter. On DS, I'd love to get copies of Jam With The Band, Freshly-Picked: Tingle’s Rosy Rupeeland, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Sacrifice... but don't expect any of those games to come across either. Oh well.
