Recently played my friends copy of Sin & Punishment for the first time.
This game is totally worth the hype! Incredible graphics and gameplay.
::fingers crossed for US VC release::
:D

Didn't this happen with another VC game? It had only been released in Japan or something and is available for the U.S. VC.

Just watched a couple of YouTube videos... the music and speech sounds pretty terrible. I'd rather they did a little more than port / translate it. It looks like the kind of game that could benefit from pointer controls.

I remember people raving about this in the day though... care to elaborate on why this news rocks?

what's this? I think it's quite obvious I'm missing the big picture here. I hate being left out of the loop, someone tell me what's in the box

Best VC news yet!!! Sin and Punishment on US VC + Online in Brawl would be pretty much the perfect Nintendo storm for me.

HUGE NEWS FOR VC!!!

For some reason feels very unlike Nintendo to actually do something like 'well its already in English, lets actually release it in English cause the hardcore fans seem to want it'!!!

They seem to want to be frustrating some days, so take this as a big victory!

The game is totally worth it guys.

Whoo!

The only thing that gonna happen here in the states is that Nintendo will not bring it to the VC here... Why you ask? Because when it comes to cool shit like this... NOA sucks.

I think Bayonetta and Samus are more iconic than Lara Croft.

a western release for sin and punishment would correct a major injustice. the game's already in english ffs. one of treasure's best, in any case, and one of the few but excellent reasons for the n64's existence.

It'd be hilarious if PAL gets it before North America.

Hell, imagine if PAL is the only non-Japanese region to get it, much like Tingle's Rose Coloured Rupeeland.

That'd be funny. And I'd have to get a PAL Wii.

So is this coming to the US and other territories? I'd really like to play it on VC with cleaned up graphics, plus I have a feeling this game might benefit from the GC controller.

If the game is already in English, and out on Japanese VC, why not just get a Japanese Wii instead? Only go PAL if you've got a gun stuck to your head. Hell, we haven't even got Super Paper Mario over here yet.

PAL is evil. Do you really think I'd ever get a PAL system voluntarily?

If that happens, I will headbutt NOA in the ovaries.

Well, ignoring the Australia hate, any game coming to Australia is coming to the US... so this is confirmation that Sin & Punishment is coming to the US.
