    Yeah, I believe this would be neat to have in US/UK.

    You could have a map of New York City, Chicago, etc

    But, I doubt they'll ever release them here...and I bet the maps aren't entirely accurate [​IMG]

    Enough complaining in other games threads about a game that has yet to be released!
    Should be instant warning to that!

    On topic:

    I wish "games" like these would come out in europe / america as well. And what about this square enix thing? I thought they didn't do other games than RPGs or action games pretty much based on their RPGs... (oh, and a race game)...

    Is there a software/game to tour a country? like watching its souvenirs, monuments and stuff? for eastern countries like Japan, Hong Kong, China, etc.

    I thought this one is something like that at first, but it seems that its just maps, correct me if I'm wrong.

    So far there's Thailand, France, Italy, Taiwan, Hawaii, New York, the UK, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Seoul.
    Not just maps but general tools to fix your travel schedule and itinerary, information on places to see, a sort-of translation and helper of the local language (your DS speaks for you! oh lol), etc.

    Gambia, The
    europeans and americans have to finally realise that the DS is more than a kids' toy. but thats hard when seeing all the petz crapz...
    if the perception of the DS could be improved - at publishers side and general consumers - we would get more useful software...not just in japanese :/

    I'm more disappointed about the fact that both Square and Enix (EA too) chose not to release a single game for Dreamcast in any region during its entire lifespan.

    I dunno. Still isn't a good thing either way. Kind of like how Nippon Ichi only has made games for Sony platforms, despite having no contract or anything else that would prevent them from working on others.
