This Week In Imports: Lightning Returns Again

By Spencer . November 18, 2013 . 4:25pm

imageJapan isn’t slouching while Microsoft and Sony focus on their new consoles in North America. Square Enix has Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII this week and Gust will release a remake of Atelier Rorona.

 

Another title to keep an eye on is One Piece: Unlimited World RED. This is a hunting game starring Luffy and friends and since Monster Hunter 4 did quite well on 3DS this may be another hot seller. Also, Nintendo will release Super Mario 3D World here and in Japan. Check out our thoughts about the game here.

    Tearaway for me.

  • TheExile285

    New Rorona & OP Red launch this week too? I those 2 and LR do well. Hoping for localization for OP Red and New Rorona.

    Nothing for me this week . I kind of wanna get Tearaway but I’ll wait a little while. Still waiting for my GE2 import to show up ;_;

    • Trinity

      Considering that the other Alchemist games did get localized, I have hope that New Rorona will, too.

    Tearaway, Link Between Worlds, and Super Mario 3D World? Aaagh, so many games I can’t get yet until Christmas…

    Hope New Rorona sells well.

  • Trinity

    …there’s a Cooking Mama FIVE?

    • FlyingPony

      Look like Cooking Mama is pretty popular.. although I am not sure which demographic is buying it the most. Maybe the traditional housewives bought it and learn a new way to cook..

      • komiko12

        I think the super duper casual audience are the one buying it. My female classmates used to borrow my DS just to play Cooking Mama.

  • Aoshi00

    Importing Lightning Returns, Drakengard 3 and FFX/X-2 HD next month.. also I hope BB has the 3 XB1 games I want, Ryse, DR3, & AC4 BF to take advantage of their promo deal. Not going there midnight :P so Crimson Dragon is d/l only huh..

    Would really like to play as Cat Mario, but I feel like I’m a bit Mario’ed out for some reason..

  • rurin

    Wait. For some reason, totally thought Lightning Returns was coming out next year

    • Herok♞

      Because it is for NA/Europe

  • Kornelious

    I really hope New Rorona gets localized….and a physical release…and a limited edition….please?

  • Dsvkb

    Doesn’t Mario Party come out this week too?

  • malek86

    I ordered Dead Rising 3 in the end, although it will take a while to arrive here. But since I won’t get my console before Dec 13th, I guess that’s not a problem.

  • Malon

    New Atelier Rorona pleaaaaaaase, we’ll be the best friends forever!
