Hello and thank you for contacting Nintendo,
As you may already know, Forever Blue has been announced in Japan. So far, there hasn't been an official announcement of a release outside of that market.
There are many reasons that Nintendo or any other Japanese publisher may decide to release a game solely for the Japanese market. These can include difficulty or cost of localization, the size and financial strength of the publisher, and (most often) the idea that the game will simply not be accepted or enjoyed in other markets.
However, there are (like you) real fans of those games or franchises in this market who would love nothing more than to see these games on store shelves here. I understand (and sometimes even share) your frustration! Having said that, please understand that those fans constitute a very small portion of the gaming public, too small to justify the costs associated with bringing a game here.
Of course, you never know what the future holds, as evidenced by the appearance in this market of previously Japan-only franchises like Advance Wars and Fire Emblem. Keep an eye on our website (http://www.nintendo.com/newsmain
) for all the latest news as it becomes available.
