Nintendo’s E3 press-conference aired earlier today, and some may have noted that most of the 3rd party content shown for the Wii U was from Western developers, with a presentation from Ubisoft, as well as clips from games such as EA’s Mass Effect 3 and THQ’s Darksiders II.

But where were the Japanese games? A (very) roughly translated tweet from Nintendo president, Satoru Iwata seems to suggest that the games from Japanese developers, along with price and release date, will be revealed at a later date. The poorly translated text follows:

Because I think third-party software lineup [Iwata] for Japan, again the opportunity, along with the announcement of the Release Date and price, such as hard, and would like to introduce, thank you. ‪ # Iwata_E3

Hopefully, localization announcements for these Japanese titles will follow soon after.



About Devin Kotani

Devin is a Canadian, and as such, plays hockey (no he doesn’t) and drinks maple syrup (not really) while riding a wild moose (he’s never seen a moose). When he’s not perpetuating cultural stereotypes, he’s playing videogames, which has been, on occasion, very bad for his mental health, problems with which have plagued him for years. Now, at 20, he’s getting his mental health issues under control, and he’s trying to decide what to do with his life. He’s currently debating between journalism and trying his hand at the dramatic arts.
