I want to feel excited, but I can't

Late last year, Square Enix released for the DS a remake of the GameBoy "classic"--I put the word in quotes because I'm quite possibly the only person in the world who considers the game a classic--SaGa 2 (aka Final Fantasy Legend 2).

Although the game hardly lit up the Japanese sales charts--retailers have moved just over 160,000 copies since it hit the streets on Sept. 17, 2009--it apparently sold well enough to warrant another DS-bound SaGa remake. 

According to the latest issue of Famitsu, the folks at Square Enix (or, more likely, the folks at Racjin) are hard at work on a DS remake of SaGa 3, which will be called SaGa 3: Shadow or Light when it's released in Japan later this year.

Considering the SaGa 2 remake has yet to make its way to other territories, it's likely (and unfortunate) that this forthcoming sequel will remain a Japan-only release as well.

All this "Japan Only" news is bumming me out. I wish Nintendo would pay its localizers to bring us something other than shovelware and Nintendo huge releases.

Yeah, but this isn't a Nintendo game -- it's Square's fault if it doesn't come over!
