Careful. Could be an elaborate April Fools.
Could be, but I dunno...

Like some one pointed out over FAQs:

Nth said:
...It was supposed to be an April Fool's joke when Septiego showed up at FireProClub saying he was a localization producer who had acquired the rights to Fire Pro Wrestling Returns and would be porting it to North America. Then that turned out to be true.

It was an April Fool's joke when Fire Pro Returns was first announced in Japan because Fire Pro Wrestling Z was supposed to be the end of the series. Then that turned out to be true.

In fact every time something Fire Pro related is announced, everyone assumes it's an April Fool's joke, even though there has never been a single precedent of a Fire Pro Wrestling April fool's joke.

...

Fire Pro Club may be a fan driven community, but it is still North America's site of record when it comes to Puroresu gaming with its affiliate Purogamer and Monitor's old KOC Access site.

The fact is if this was an elaborate April Fool's joke on the part of Fire Pro Club then it would destroy it's reputation as well as the reputation of several key members who are known to go above and beyond the call of duty for offering services to North America's Puroresu gaming public. I just don't see them throwing it all away in such an elaborate fashion over a 'joke' no one would find remotely funny if it were a hoax.
So, based on both precedents, as well as FireProClub putting its "reputation" on the line? This is either at least partially true, or FPC is basically looking to throw themselves under the bus... :lol

EDIT: On another, the SD Gundam game looks cool. I hope it has my Phoenix Gundam in it... :D

Nice to see some Wii support. Though I still predict that SD Gundam will sell far more on the PS2 then Wii due to that's where its fanbase is all at.

Before anyone asks: No, G Generation Wars will not be coming to North America. None of the previous G Generation titles have ever been released here, so I don't see why they'd start with this one.
This isn't even the first SD Gundam for the Wii even.

Perhaps since the Dynasty Warriors Gundam games are being released here, perhaps BN will bring this over as the audience may be larger here now?

Still not likely. The DW Gundam games are being released for mainly one reason: they have more in common with what has already been moderately successful over here (Warriors/Musou games), than because they're Gundam games.

Notice how no other Gundam games have been released over here, lately. Even the latest entrant in the Gundam vs. Gundam series has yet to be localized, in spite of the fact that Capcom and Bandai-Namco BOTH know that such games could probably do just as well as DW:G, if marketed properly.

But the fact is, by and large, BN can't be bothered with Gundam in the States. Most fans import the stuff they want any way, so they basically of the opinion "why bother?"

Rhythm de RunRunRun?

I wonder if they said anything about the framerate in the review text of Oboro, it's basically the only thing I'm worried about. If it plays smoothly it will be awesome.

Oh darn it they made it easier then Odin Sphere. But yeah I'm glad it's shorter then its predecessor since I don't think I can put more then 30 hours in a game now-a-days. 10 to 12 hours seems like a good time.
