I don't want to go off on a rant or anything, but just what is the deal with Electroplankton
? Not the game itself, which I admire for the fact that Nintendo is offering such a unique product. What I don't get is the fact that you can't go into the store to get it. No, it's only available online. Not only that, some sources say that it's only being offered in limited quantities and once they're gone, that's it. Presumably, Nintendo has fears that the American market just isn't ready for something quirky like Electroplankton. But to me, it feels a little snobbish - "Japanese audiences are all over this, but you Americans, well..."
Okay, maybe that's a little harsh. Certainly I've been in this business long enough to know that some products are worth going out on a limb for, and some aren't. But that doesn't mean I have to like it.
See you next week!
