Kimi to Boku to Ritai Coming To US WiiWare

Posted by Corbie Dillard

It seems Kenji Eno's Japanese WiiWare title Kimi to Boku to Ritai will indeed see a release on the US WiiWare service and possibly on the European WiiWare service as well.

The recent release of Kenji Eno's first WiiWare title Kimi to Boku to Ritai on the Japanese WiiWare service has stirred up quite a bit of anticipation for a possible release of the game outside of Japan. Thanks to a recent 1UP interview with Eno, we now know that the game is indeed on its way to a release outside of Japan.

Below is the portion of the 1UP interview where Kenji Eno speaks about the ongoing localization of the game and when we might see it released on the US WiiWare service.

1UP: How long until the game comes out in the US?

Kenji Eno: Pretty soon. The localization has been a little difficult even though the game itself doesn't have a lot of text. Once you start playing it, Ritai should feel intuitive, because the motions are very simple. But I was afraid that people would be put off by such a new concept, so the tutorial is quite detailed. There's a lot of explanation provided to avoid any possible confusion. And there's lots of different languages to work on, like German, French and Spanish as well. But it should finish development next week. After that, it's up to Nintendo of America to set a release date.

We'll have more information on Kimi to Boku to Ritai as it becomes available, as well as a full review of the title once it hits the WiiWare service. In the meantime, don't forget to check out our own first impressions of the Japanese release of Kimi to Boku to Ritai for a taste of what you can expect from the game when it hits the US WiiWare service.

Looks ok? Can't really say much since there's only one obscure screenshot.

@Digiki: There are other pictures in the previous threads about the game. And PALgamer has also found links to some videos that are posted there.

I'm glad to hear it's coming. Judging from the video I've seen it looks promising. I might even be willing to pay 1k points for it if there is enough content.

I'll echo my good friend Bahamut, but I'll replace the question mark.

Yay!

I really enjoyed Sean's musings on the game, and honestly it seems like something I might enjoy very much. Keeping an eye on this one.

With the sound of the German, etc. work, it seems highly likely that this will see a European release as well.

I too am now excited about this one. Looks really cool in action. I wonder what they're going to title it for US release?

Oh, I just came to this article directly so I never saw the previous articles.

Whydoes it say "Ritai" all over this article? Shouldn't it be "Rittai" like in the other one? Rittai is shape.

Because everywhere I've seen it has it with one "t" like the 1UP interview has it. So I left it that way. Even the videos I looked at had it that way. :)

Awesome, I can't wait to give this a go so that I can work out for myself what the hell I'm supposed to do :D

Also, has anybody heard about Fez? It's a game where you have to switch dimensions / the angle of the screen in order to progress, Super Paper Mario style. For some reason, seeing this reminded me of the game, which would be ace on WiiWare.

So, if everybody else jumps off a cliff you're gonna be right behind? ;)

If it looked fun, you bet. :P

But what I meant was that these places were where I was getting my information from. I didn't see it any other way so I had no idea it was even spelled differently. When I read through Sean's impressions earlier, I just didn't pay much attention to how the word was spelled. :)

It should be Rittai with two T's, but it's not an English word to start with, so I wouldn't get hung up about it.

I still have no idea what this game is about. No, edit that; I've got a general idea, but the phantom image it's producing in my mind's eye isn't a good one.

What's to know? Chuck little people at a cube two-at a time and make sure the cube they're on doesn't tip so much they slide off.

It's an instant classic I tells ya!
