As Nintendo prepares to transition to the 3DS, the company is looking for ways to continue serving its large install base on the Nintendo DS. One way may be to localize games that have yet to arrive in other territories (via Siliconera).
Speaking with investors, president Satoru Iwata said that localizing games from the DS's large library may be a way to take advantage of the current DS library. He cited Animal Crossing for the GameCube as an example, which wasn't slated to be localized until Nintendo's localization branch evaluated it and determined it would be viable in the west.

There are plenty of DS games that have yet to be localized, including Soma Bringer, 7th Dragon and Blood of Bahamut. Nintendo has also yet to announce whether the latest Fire Emblem remake will be localized.

It's unknown how Nintendo would approach a renewed effort to send games overseas. We'll likely get a better idea of Nintendo's plans when the 3DS launches next year.

Well well well, I think fans were a little too fast to act on that Nintendo (way too fast), you may be a little late as most of those games have been translated (if they knew) by hungry eager fans

A lot of the games that site mentions aren't even by Nintendo.
And not all of Nintendo's games are translated, so no, fans aren't fast.
Fix your spoiler. Oh wait, you already fixed it by getting rid of it

XD yeah I was having trouble if so I (F'd) instead =]

I know but It's nice to hear about it, now lets see if they actually do it. Yeah the site is dumb the ones listed aren't from Nintendo, but maybe Nintendo will get 3rd parties to localize as well.

None of those are important enough for Nintendo to pick up.

Well of course this makes sense, the DS is almost dead, those games wouldn't have sold that well anyway if they were localised before. But you see, Nintendo realizes no one cares for all the crap they have been releasing on the DS lately, and any of these games could actually sell now.

I really hope they localize Jet Impulse (was gonna be known as DS Air in the west). It was an excellent arcadey flight sim, similar to Ace Combat. Developed by Nintendo with an original and semi-serious storyline, coupled with great graphics and awesome controls. Defo my favorite jap game for the DS.
