Square Enix publishing Space Invaders Extreme outside of Japan?

Space Invaders Extreme landed in Japan yesterday and a copy should by flying over the Pacific Ocean to me sometime in the near future. However, I might have jumped the gun on importing it because chances are Space Invaders Extreme and Arkanoid DS are getting an official release in North America.

Gamestop has listings up for the two DS games and the PSP version of Space Invaders Extreme. I suppose I should have seen this coming considering the cost to localize these games is low and Taito is owned by Square Enix. They may even be the company publishing these retro gems in the USA, which would make these the first Taito games published with a Square Enix stamp. For $20 both of these are a steal. The price is way cheaper than importing and even cheaper than purchasing them in Japan. While this news is completely unofficial now (despite the ESRB labeled box art) I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this rumor is true.
