Why can't EU get a list of games for June =)

Seriously thou, waiting for the games I want, is getting harder to handle...

I only got 500 wii ppoints left for now, So I'm waiting for an awesome NES game. I got kirby's adventure and it was good fun but I had some problems. Any suggestions?



Bass_X0 said:

Still no NeoGeo titles announced? I expected Japan to have some soon. I hope they are not too far away. There's only F-Zero X I want from that list, a few others I may try but I don't know if I will.



Mendez said:

I hope we get Ecco the Dolphin 2 pretty soon, it's even better than the first one

Thank you very much !
I know you don't want / can't review the japanese games but having this kind of news is good.



Kelvin said:

Magic Drop? Ooh. It's good to see some proper puzzle games turning up.



TheNintendoBoy said:

Ah, Hybrid Front.. I wish they'd translate that one.
Magical Drop doesn't even need a translation, just release it!



JNoodles said:

Devil's. Crush. Hudson... YOU MUST RELEASE THIS IN JULY! (Late June if they pull a World Sports Championship on us)



C3dke said:

I hope so much that they will release Mario Story in the EU this month...



Bass_X0 said:

N64 games have been released almost simutaneously around the world in the past (its certainly true for the existing four released in Europe and the U.S.) so I say F-Zero X should be released very soon.



Bass_X0 said:

And can I also say a big "EWW!" about the number of points MSX games cost to download? 800 points!!! I can't see anybody downloading these games for that price. Except maybe the original Metal Gear but thats only because of the name.



Outrunner said:

Does anyone think there's any chance of them releasing Paper Mario in the UK? Don't think we got it on N64.



Mark said:

wow nintendo needs to be nicer to the UK, let them have their paper mario!
