Credit to my homeboy Daegan for spotting it!

Frankly, Im excited for Men in Black III. His tweet on it also woke me up for my Doctor's appointment.

It's cool Kotaku, Destructoid steal our news!

If true I'm there. I will put aside my issues with GameStop (which strangely has started recently for some reason. Not worth the effort anymore to dislike them I guess.) to get this.

I don't even care if it's just the PAL version just made to run on a NTSC Wii. I'm there regardless.

I'll buy it at a high price.

I hope they keep the awesome voice acting from the PAL version.

Over seven months after a substantial portion of the audience informed enough about JRPGs to care has already imported the PAL version? Well, at least this indicates something vaguely resembling a newfound streak of sanity on NoA's part - makes no sense not to at least do a limited NTSC print run when the localization costs have already been paid for.

Retailer exclusive games are not a new thing. I remember a Beast Wars N64 game being Blockbuster exclusive in the 90s.

They're probably fronting some (maybe most?) of the cost of releasing it here.

Finally. Goddamn. At this rate I expected an HD-Re-release on Wii U's launch.
