Something like Itadaki Street gets localized (yet no Valkyrie Profile 3) in American English and I'm the only one to notice? Well...it won't have FF characters...so no Aeris (or Chocobo), and it won't really count as an official Mario game since it won't have his name on it....
So buy at $20 and keep it and enjoy it. Then laugh when everyone else figures out its good and has Mario in it....At least it better be good, Dokapon Kingdom....wait no I'm done mentioning that.
Also wow, Gamestop sells Metroid Prime Trilogy for $69.99? That's almost bankrolling if their max trade is still $20 on anything older than a year...
I hope that changes with the coming of the 8th generation.
This gets said about..I dunno every day now, and from an english standpoint I agree.
Have you seen what Nintendo brings out in Japan? Look up Captain Rainbow for land's sakes and tell me they did just not do that, cause they did. Just two weeks ago I was describing Tingle's adventure for GBA and DS to a seriously long-term gamer, a 30 y.o. house wife who hates that her daughter hogs the DS (she needs her rpg time) and her face was just OMG you did not just tell me "that" in a Nintendo game. But I did, cause its true. And it has a name, and that name is...yeah..
If you want to hardline Nintendo, import from Europe. Some of the best this generation made it there.
Personally, I blame focus groups....women 40-55 and their farmville have ruined the obscure.
A title worth replying to. If only the postings followed suit instead of just waxing about the past.
Sadly, the game is incredibly narrow in scope for the so-called "general" consumer. Much like Pikmin and Chibi-Robo.
Anyone with two-bits of info could do a playthrough and fascinate children and adults alike. Had the developers saw this as a way of playing games, I think there would be additional success in both the genre and the branding. Something to look into.
Still..amazing game. And I don't know how you could play the story in only 8 hours. I was on the first island for 4 before going further into it. There really is no reason to rush when you can explore so much for so long a time. Its so frustrating that the cheap Pokemon Snap ripoffs flooded the Wii soon after and left this in the dust.
