The Best Japan-Only Games of 2012

Japan: The birthplace of Mario, Sonic, Final Fantasy, and Street Fighter—just to name a few. Each year scores of games are made and released here. The best of these come to the West—or rather most of the best do. Each year, a few great titles manage to slip through the cracks for whatever reason and 2012 is no exception.

The following is a collection of the best Japan-only games of 2012 (in no particular order). Some of these will likely never see an international release while others are already rumored to have one on the way. But regardless, as things stand now, these games remain Japan-only. (3DS, Bravely Default: Flying Fairy, E.X. Troopers, Hatsune Miku Project Diva F, Professor Layton VS Ace Attorney, Project X Zone, PS Vita, PS3, Tokitowa)

Bravery Default looks really good.
On a side note does anyone know if Tokitowa is getting a western release?

I believe it was confirmed to be coming to the west but we weren't given a release date as yet.

Too bad you can't play japan only 3DS games unless you have a japanese 3DS. It's great being able to import any PS Vita game I want no matter what region it's from.

Aye, still playing and enjoying Hatsune Miku Project Diva f. ^o^
The list should also include Super Robot Wars OGs2 and Gundam Extreme VS.
