31/31 Day 16: Games that are secretly taunting me

Be it taking a long time to be made, or not being exported over here. There are a lot of Video Games that just aren't making themselves available to those who want them. Here's a list of the Video Games I'm in that position with (hopefully not for long).

 

 

Pikmin 3

Pikmin 3 was supposed to come out on the Wii, then it platform jumped to the Wii U. Why did it platform jump? Because it's taking that long to develop. I've been waiting for this for so long, and it still doesn't have a release date. Can we please have more details Nintendo?

 

 

Super Smash Brother 4

Do I even need to explain? It's confirmed to exist, now we all want a trailer and details.

 

 

Star Wars Battlefront III

Is it just me, or is three the number signifying a high chance of taking forever to release. One of the best Star Wars Video Game series, and we still don't have the third entry.

 

 

Tales of Innocence R

The concept of reincarnation greatly interests me, oh, there's a Tales Of game about it. Which is japan only. Curses, foiled by the lack of an export

 

 

Bravely Default: Flying Fairy

This game just looks so good, and Square currently has no plans to localize it. Curse you lack of JRPG popularity in the West.

 

 

Project X-Zone

Three-way crossover between Capcom, Namco and Sega. Do I have to say anything else. 

 

 

Persona 2: Eternal Punishment

Hey Atlus, there's a hole in Persona collection between Persona 2: Innocent Sin and Persona 3 FES, I think you have something to fill that hole. So please localize it, you can't just let the Persona 2 story be split between the PSP and PSOne here in the West while Japan gets both parts on the same system.

 

 

Samurai Warriors Chronicles 2

The first Samurai Warriors Chronicles was the best game in the 3DS launch. I am not happy that the sequel may not come over here. Stupid biased reviewers who have more errors in their reviews then a Fox News report on Video Games. And yes, I'm looking at you IGN.

 

 

So to summarize this list, Japan hates me (and so does Lucasarts). It really is shame that so many great Video Games have a high chance of not being played by people who really want them (Tales of Innocence R has been explicitly stated to not have a western release).  Hopefully, at least some of these will surprise us and become available (I'm hoping Pikmin 3 doesn't become the new Half-Life 3).
