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.

There is one upcoming first party release on the Wii before the Wii U is released which is Inazuma eleven strikers out on 28th September.


@ejamer There are stores like Yes-Asia por Japanese copies, CD Universe for USA copies and Zavvi for Europe copies.




Pokemon Mystery Dungeon for Wiiware.

Though then again those stupid bobbleheads weren't good anyway.

Though to be honest, I don't think we are missing out on much in NA. Fatal frame II is made by Koei, and it's their choice for an NA release (That's changed since Nintendo owned the Fatal frame IP, however.), while Pandora's Tower is the shortest and lowest-rated of the RPG trio.

I just want Devil world on my Wii VC in america. Honestly, WHAT'S TAKING SO LONG?

How do people here go about getting import games?

As others have noted both YesAsia and PlayAsia are reputable. PlayAsia has a handy feature where you can watch for discounts on a title which saved me a bundle on the Taiko no Tatsujin 2 release with Tatacon because it was a rare instance where they had a used one for sale.

Otherwise eBay is quite good if you remember to do your search and view international sellers. A number of well-established North American importers like NCSX use eBay to sell stuff and some Japanese ones.

I got the expected "no plans to release that" from Nintendo so if I have the spare cash I'll be getting the Japanese Excitebots release next month.

I bought FFII for Famicom yesterday and I used Ebay. Almost any site like that can give you a JP game, but do Play-Asia to be safe for newer games. You don't want pirates to invade the wii.
