    3 years later, it comes out in Korea. I've never seen a game come out that long after it's release in other countries. Then again, they usually get everything last (I'm not sure why, so if someone knows, tell me).

    IIRC, Sonic Rush only came out in 2009.
    But there was a reason behind it.

    I'm not sure but I think it's because of censorship. It takes a loooong time before it's approved. Correct me if I'm wrong though, but as far as I remember that's the reason.

    How can Mario Strikers Charged be censored :/ ? Srsly, I would understand if it was a game like MadWorld, but Mario...

    Really? [​IMG]

    Well it kinda sucks that Korea gets stuff late. Is it a general trend of all their games or just this one? [​IMG]

    I currently am in Korea. I must say the games come out very late here. I think it might be because the official launching of the wii here hasn't been that long. Instead of releasing a bunch of games really quickly. They trickle games into the market to expand the product life and maximize profits.

    But this also has a negative effect, as korea has a huge piracy problem probably because the Official Korean wii games really suck.

    In Korea, console games are not as popular as computer games. It could be one of those reasons why the games come out so late. They usually and mostly play computer online games like Star Craft or those fantasy role playing games. Reason? I don't know...
