The Best Games Never to Get a Worldwide Release

Last week, we brought you the games that time forgot - those games stuck in development limbo that they may never escape. But there's another category of lost games: the ones that never make it out of Japan. Back in the PlayStation 2 era (and the SNES era before that), there were hundreds and hundreds of them every year. Now there are many fewer, but the odd one still slips through the net.

A quick glance through this generation's consoles reveals a range of gems which have sadly never been given the chance to shine on the global stage. While there's always the option to import, wouldn't it be wonderful if we could forget about exchange rates and taxes and pick up these titles a little closer to home?
