Jump Superstars coming to America?

By Spencer . December 7, 2006 . 7:43am


I’ve seen copies of Jump Superstars at Fry’s and a Best Buy with warnings that the game is an import title, but now there might be a chance that Jump Superstars is going to be distributed in North America on a larger scale. D-Fuse, one of our readers, sent us an e-mail with a link to a Gamestop page with Jump Superstars listed. Apparently Tommo is handling the game and it is scheduled to be released on December 13, 2006. A fully localized version on December seems unlikely, since no announcements about an English speaking game have popped up. Instead it looks like Tommo is distributing the Japanese version of the title on a larger scale. Before you get excited this is unconfirmed and should be taken as a rumor until we dig up some more details.


Update: EB Games / Gamestop is distributing the title and Tommo is acting as the supplier since they already distribute import games in North America.

    Seems almost too good to be true. I have to agree, as much as I’d love to see a localized version of Jump Superstars there’s just too many things going against it for there to be a proper release for an American audience. Licensing issues will most certainly get in the way, and we can’t simply forget many of the anime/manga properties have not received a translation in the US to begin with. I’ll believe it when I see it.

    Seriously doubtful that there would be any fully localized version. Heck, many of the characters don’t even exist in America. I doubt it even more that it’s localized because of the price. $50 for a DS game looks like added cost for import to me.

    Anybody knows of a B&M store in Houston that carries the second installment?? because I can’t get it online…..
