shinchanes.jpgKitsune Sniper pointed out something (thanks!!) I was absolutely unaware of. Atari snapped up the rights for Shin-Chan and released two Game Boy Advance games in Europe. Most European games get a multi-language release, but not the Shin-Chan games. Atari only localized them in Spanish and I think I know why. Shin-Chan has a devoted fanbase in Spain that sprouted from his TV show. However, it still is odd Atari did not release the games in English too considering Shin-Chan appeared on the UK airwaves and all. Maybe they couldn't get the rights? Ah… well this is the past anyways. I'm more curious if Namco Bandai is going to localize the DS remake of Shin-Chan: Arashi wo Yobu Cinema Land.
