Back in September, Hudson slipped Elemental Monster in stores. The Nintendo DS card game barely got any attention, which means this news will only be heartbreaking for a few. Hudson doesn’t have any plans to release it outside of Japan, citing that “it’s for Japan only” in this week’s Hudson @round the Net article. This a pretty clear statement compared to the "we're thinking about it" and "possibly" answers companies usually hand out. Unless another company dares to localize this relatively unknown title, odds are it's staying in Japan.
