Gradius Rebirth (Wii) – E
SimAnimals (DS) – E
Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia (DS) – E

Well, it looks like we can expect Gradius Rebirth to arrive in North America sometime soon!

“Specific plans will be unveiled by our local subsidiaries, but in autumn or year-end launch would probably be too late.” – Satoru Iwata

Reggie said North America wouldn’t see the DSi until at least April 2009 and Iwata believes that the system shouldn’t be launched in autumn. Summer starts in June, so perhaps the DSi will be released in May next year. Definitely much later than our friends in Japan, but at least it won’t be arriving in December next year!

“Perfect for the half term rainy day”
