Nintendo publishing and even translating games for SE in the past has ensured exclusivity on some of these titles. That's not only for SE as a matter of fact, the fact that Tales of Symphonia remained exclusive to the Gamecube in the west was simply because Nintendo translated the game themselves for Namco, and Namco coudln't be bothered to do a completely different translation and voice over to get the PS2 version over to the west as well. Such deals aren't necessarily a bad thing for Nintendo, and it's worked well in their favour in the past. Nintendo is publishing Dragon Quest Builders as well in the west by the way, or at least I think they do considering review copies got sent by Nintendo and not Square Enix themselves, at least in Europe.
