It defies belief that this is to be released in Q3/Q4 in Europe. When a game like Pokemon (Which is text heavy) can have an internationally synchronised release, why can't this.

You'd be surprised.  I used to run a gaming site a long time ago, and got games to review, however, some of the press releases I got showed that EU lagged behind JP & NA by a few months in some cases.  There were cases where EU & JP got games that for some reason they refused to release in NA, but yet they wanted me to review them, but I always refused, because if they weren't going to release a game in NA, then there was no point in reviewing it.

I would imagine a lot of that text is also recycled, particularly the battle and menu scripts. Even the storylines must be fairly similar allowing them to speed it up.

 

Still doesn't explain why Kirby's text would take so long when it's the polar opposite :s
