    I wonder when Square is going to annouce that “It’s a Wonderful World” is coming to the US.

    NICE! we’re getting Joker. I don’t see FFT: A2 in there though… and Wonderful World would definitely be appreciated (and bought) by me.

    Yeah no news on It’s a Wonderful World, but Square-Enix has to save something for E3 right? I’m going to speculate a little on FFTA2 the reason why it’s not there is Nintendo may act as the publisher. The same goes for Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates.
