We've been pessimistic about Disaster: Day of Crisis
getting localized for North America, and with (what we believe to be) good reason

. Some guy saying he got an email from Nintendo customer support is exactly the kind of anecdote we'd usually snort derisively at, and you're right: we should all treat this with a degree of suspicion.

If you'll excuse us, we'll shamelessly grasp at any straws tossed our way. Pleeeeease be true, lovely Disaster
