Fun Fact: NoA has done this since the Wii era. It is nothing new. Other companies have done it too.
Resources are thin. Between spending resources to "localize" a Japanese game or not bothering releasing a game at all, most of the time a Japanese game will go unreleased at all in the west. The now NSO practice of bringing original Japanese versions of games is intended to be a middle ground to give certain games a chance in America that would have otherwise just be left in the past, never to be released outside pirating.
