The Top 7... Japanese games that absolutely need to be localized for the west

Gamesradar- In 2012, most games released in Japan end up making their way to the US and UK--it’s rare that a big-budget title isn’t also localized and pushed out in the two largest gaming territories in the world. Sure, we still miss out on some dating sims, horse racing sims, and JRPGs, but it’s pretty much a sure bet that anything that would sell in the states will be sold in the states.

Sometimes, however, things slip through the cracks. Licensing will keep certain titles tethered to Japan, while other games end up being released on less popular systems and, thus, never make their way out of the Land of the Rising Sun. So now, with Tokyo Game Show beginning later in the week, we celebrate these games--and beg for their release. (Culture, Final Fantasy Type-0, The Secret of Mana 2, Valkyria Chronicles 3)

More visual novels should be brought over... Despite the bad rep they get (not sure why), they tend to have really engrossing stories. The branching paths are really cool too, never know what kind of ending you'll get.

I agree Captain Rainbow, Type-0 & Valkyria Chronicles III do need to come out.
