I would import but I'm pretty sure the Wii is region locked.

... let me double check...

Nope region locked. No imports for me,

You could use homebrew, but then that makes your warranty void if you use it I think. That's if you still have warranty.

There are lots of topics about how simple it is to soft-mod your Wii. Takes around 5 minutes to do...

I might do that, I was certainly thinking about it. I'll wait a bit though to see if good European sales lead to it getting a release in the US.

One can only hope.

Lets be Deadly Serious - I very much admire your Operation Rainfall, thast why I'm going to by Last Story and Pandora's Tower as well.

Zangeki no Reginleiv, Takt of Magic and Captain Rainbow should have been translated ages ago Smilie

To be honest I'm not at all excited about this game. The only one of those 3 that looks interesting to me is The Last Story.

But I probably won't even buy that... I'm not into RPGs.

I need to look more into The Last Story, but I have to say, I really like the look of Pandora's Tower. The more action-oriented Zelda-like gameplay seems more appealing to me at the moment, and the story seems very interesting.
