We need King Story scans! It's by far the most interesting 3rd party Wii game. :D

I guess the MMO didn't work out for Camelot or something? I thought they were putting all their resources into it and 11UP's games?

King Story smells a lot like Actraiser!
Yeah, that's what I thought of too, except without the action segments and almost certainly a ton more advanced. I'm hoping for something like Caesar II. Now that was an awesome game.

Will Bioshock be localized for Japan? If they know what's good for them they'll start a petition like they did with Oblivion.

Pretty sure the Camelot was leaving Nintendo thing from awhile back was nothing more than a mistranslation. There was an article out later explaining what happened.
