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.
