Oh, the stories that Nintendo’s fiscal report tells. Earlier today, we showed you a list of titles that Nintendo has slated for Japan, NA, and Europe. Within that list was Shiren the Wanderer 3, listed for Japan. The thing is, Nintendo had a slightly different subtitle for the game. The name of the game is Shiren the Wanderer 3: Karakuri Yashiki no Nemuri Hime, which roughly translates into Sleeping Princess in Karakuri Mansion. In Nintendo’s list, the subtitle was translated to The Sleeping Princess in the Clockwork Palace. Those two names, while close, do have distinct differences. Could this be sneak peek evidence that Shiren the Wanderer 3 is heading to North America?
I remember when Sega said that they had no plans to bring the Shiren Wii title to NA. Perhaps they have had a change of heart. For the sake of Shiren, let’s hope so.
Also worth noting is the inclusion of yet another DS-developed Naruto game. This title is called Naruto Shippuden Saikyou Ninja Daikesshuu Gekitotu!! Naruto vs. Sasuke. No surprise to see yet another Naruto title hit the DS. The license is a big money-maker for Tomy.
