Nintendo has further explained its decision to keep Mistwalker'sThe Last Story in Japan, claiming that it's "not viable" to bring the game overseas. The justification makes specific reference to Europe, where Nintendo doesn't feel it's worth the compulsory language options.
"With all the conversions, when we do it in Europe we've got to do the whole of Europe," says Nintendo UK boss David Yarnton. "So it's multiple languages. It has to be viable. We've got so much on our plate at the moment. The most important one is in the first quarter this year.Kirby's Epic Yarn is the most important title. We've got some great product coming out.
"On top of that, when we add in 3DS, it's just so much."
Although this is like an arrow through the heart, Nintendo has not completely shot down the idea, adding: "We've released quite a lot of RPGs on the Wii in the UK. It's an area that's been growing for us. It's up to the market. We never write anything off."
