Nintendo hates you...the RPG player.
I'm surprised there isn't already a thread dedicated to this. I'm sure most Wii fans feel quite starved for RPGs. This generation (well, basically since the SNES), Nintendo hasn't given fans much to be happy about. However there were 3 games on the horizon of the Japanese shores that seemed like they could be a great send off for the Wii.
A fan led petition was online just last week and Nintendo responded to it.
I don't know if anyone else cares, but I know that I'm very disappointed that Nintendo of America is choosing not to localize these 3 games. Maybe Xenoblade the most in particular (since it will be sold in the PAL regions).
It feels like I've heard Reggie and Nintendo tell fans a million times how much they listen and do what the fans want, but this is really dropping the ball here. The fact that the Wii is getting no support aside from Skyward Sword is such a shame. I understand they they want to focus on the Wii U, but they pulled a fast one last time with the Gamecube and pushing the Wii version of Twilight Princess out first.
Nintendo says that they want the Wii U to focus on the single player and it would make sense for the system to have some big final Wii games as selling points to go along with the new Wii U titles. I would suggest that it would be a good move to have Wii games that also help push former owners to check out the new system. Yet, it seems that they are trying to convince the "hardcore" game players to buy the system (meaning FPS fans).
Hopefully Dragon Quest X will still be coming. It seems highly unlikely that the DQ pack with 1~3 will make it's way out in English. Nintendo doesn't control that game at all and maybe it will be the last big release on the Wii.
What are your thoughts on this? Are you disappointed that NoA has decided not to publish these games? Feel slighted?
