Top 5 Unlocalized Games

"Although this generation has seen the flourishing of Western game development, there are still plenty of gems being released in Japan, some of which never reached other regions. Here are my top five picks of the huge lot of unlocalized games that are successful enough in their homeland or have a large enough following to warrant a localization." | (3DS, Fatal Frame IV, Genso Suikoden Tsumugareshi Hyakunen no Toki, Mother 3, Nintendo DS, Pandora's Tower, PC, PS3, PSP, Tales of Xillia, Wii, Xbox 360)

How could they not have FF Type-0 on here. That game looks amazing. But seems like people here in the West forgot about it. Hopefully it comes here one day.

Somehow, it went from being one more example of how FFXIII sucks(with Type-0 having its name changed and all) to getting lost in the overall hate for XIII.

Maybe Type-0 is not on the list because it is getting localized, hopefully.

I hope so. I've been listening to the soundtrack. And it is incredible. It's actually one of the better FF soundtracks and all FFs have good soundtracks.

nice list, I'm still waiting for localisation of two ds games, though I think I won't see them, but maybe at least fan translations:

okaeri chibi robo and sakura note ..oh and that ghibli game with level 5 (ds too) :) still sad about fatal frame IV game, I've finished it with english patch: one of the best horror games this gen..

are there any news about nano assault 3ds for europe localisation? (still waiting) :/

It's really a shame that a terrible publisher has taken hold of the Fatal Frame series. Hopefully Tecmo will one day get the rights back, and return the series to it's former glory in the west.

Break the locks.

Type-0 having imported the game i have to say it is one of the most satisfying games i have played ever. I still believe Squarenix is prepping for a Vita release (digital) cause of the PSPs situation here in the west (pirated to heck).

Tales of Xillia i hope comes over seeing how well Tales of Graces did.
