Nintendo Of Korea's eShop Will Offer Both Japanese And English Titles

Best of both worlds

Nintendo of Korea has been hard at work localizing many games for its region. Unfortunately, not all games can be translated, so it has come up with another solution: releasing both Japanese and English games on the Nintendo eShop. This in turn transforms the online store into some sort of import store.

Below is a list of the games that it's planning to release in the foreseeable future, along with working on Korean versions of Animal Crossing: New Leaf, New Super Mario Bros. 2, Style Savvy: Trendsetters and Mario Tennis Open.

Coming on November 28
Kokuga (JPN)
Rayman 3D
Petz Fantasy 3D

Planned for 2012
Rayman Origins
Rabbids: Travel in Time 3D

Coming in 2013
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars
Tom Clancy’s: Splinter Cell 3D
Rhythm Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure
Senran Kagura Burst (JPN)
LEGO Harry Potter Years 5-7
Spy Hunter
LEGO Lord of the Rings
Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan (JPN)
Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers (JPN)
Shin Megami Tensei IV (JPN)
Theatrhythm Final Fantasy (JPN)

Considering that we often take big releases for granted in PAL regions and North America — as well as grumbling about some Japan-exclusive games — it's interesting to see the situation in other countries.
