Oh my God!!! This is great!! Considering the audience of the KR games was built up on the Wii with the Climax Heroes series, it's logical to try to get the new audience on the Wii U, as the Kamen Rider merchandise sales well, specially with kids.

And as you say that few if any will likely ever play the game outside of Japan on the WiiU because of region locking. Meanwhile a slightly larger if insignificant handful of Western PS3 owners will at least be able to import it.

Dude, don't make it a warzone in here. .. lol

It's a sad reality, but this series don't have a big fanbase on the west...

Godmars2903662d ago

Aside from Power Rangers related stuff, when has there been sentai based games in the West?

And I'm asking this as a - minor - fan of sentai.

BlackWolf3662d ago

Yep, Sentai/Power Rangers has some fanbase, but the same can't be said for the Kamen Riders.

Besides the Masked Rider series (launched as a PR spin-off in the US) and KR Dragon Kinght series, which also had one Wii and DS game, not much has been released here.

Ahh......this feels good.

Finally, a day where the front page is NOT filled with tons and tons of hate articles and troll attempts by the worst of N4G and the internet.

It's relaxing. Calming. A good thing to wake up to.
And the best part is, this is likely what I'll come back to after my early Valentine's date with my girlfriend.

An awesome date and a Nintendo direct all in the same day.

Life. Is. Good.

On-Topic; is this due for a western release? It sounds a lot like Power Rangers, and I used to be obsessed with that as a kid.[and no matter how old I get, the season 1 opening theme with the electric guitar will always be awesome.XD]

DryBoneKoopa853662d ago

I'm with you on the good news! Its a nice change if it is only for a day at least.

Hope your date goes good!

BlackWolf3662d ago (Edited 3662d ago )

I'm with you. This has been a really nice day on N4G. It kind of makes up for the months of negativity.

Oh, and enjoy your date.

About the game... I think it will not see a western release, as these series is not on the west (aside some conversions, like Kamen Rider Dragon Knight). I guess it can be imported, but the only ones who can enjoy it are ps3 owners, as they have no region lock. T.T

as a sentai fan this is nice to see.
