Yet another reason to be upset over America's snubbing of Shin-chan

While Shin-chan video games aren't anything new, the trailer above is for the latest Shin-chan game in the works. This one is head to the Nintendo 3DS, and it looks like it really captures the essence of the show. Too bad not many people have bothered to look into what the show is all about. Either that, or they didn't like what they saw.

The states miss out on a lot of anime-licensed games, and I can understand that. If the brand isn't available in the states, seeing localized games doesn't make much sense. This Shin-chan situation really bothers me though! Shin-chan has a following here and was on TV for awhile, but it never managed to connect with a meaningful audience. Now the only option for fans when it comes to this game is importing a copy/Japanese 3DS.

I'm going to look at the Shin-chan series a bit more in another article later tonight. Perhaps we can figure out why the series seems to be snubbed thus far.
