Nintendo made big in roads into Korea by aggressively localizing games and hiring celebrities like Girls Generation. It looks like Nintendo is eyeing Taiwan as their next destination with the Nintendo 3DS.
Nintendo hired Taiwanese pop group S.H.E to do commercials for Super Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7. You can also add Selina, Ella, and Hebe to your Mii Plaza by scanning these QR codes.
Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land have been localized into Chinese. Nintendo of Taiwan also translated Nintendogs + Cats, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D (although this may be the iQue translation), and Resident Evil: Revelations into Chinese. That’s a pretty big step considering Nintendo of Taiwan only released eight Chinese language games during the Wii’s entire life cycle.
