* The vast majority of games based on the manga series ''FistOfTheNorthStar'' never saw release outside of Japan. The only games released outside of Japan were the second NES game which was called simply ''Fist of the North Star'', a fighting game for the Game Boy, the ''Fighting Mania'' arcade game, two games for the Master System and Genesis that were stripped of the license and rebranded for sale on the international market, and of course, ''VideoGame/FistOfTheNorthStarKensRage''. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Fist_of_the_North_Star_video_games The Other Wiki has many, many others]], including three VideoGame/DragonQuest-style {{RPG}}s (two of them for the NES), a line of typing games, a line of fighting games, and finally a line of pachinko games.

* ''Videogame/CrashBash'' was rereleased on the PSN Store... But only in Japan, and for every other country it remains the only ''Crash Bandicoot'' game on the UsefulNotes/PlayStation that hasn't been rereleased. Maybe it was because it wasn't made by Naughty Dog or that it wasn't as popular or good, but that doesn't explain why it was still released in Japan.
* ''VideoGame/CrimzonClover''[='=]s PC version was only released in Japan, but it can be run on any modern PC regardless of region so it's not really an example. What ''is'' an example, however, is the arcade port, which adds 2-player support and replaces Simple Mode with a new Boost Mode. It is available only on the Japan-only [=NESiCAxLive=] platform (see further below for details). The UpdatedReRelease was later made available for sale and region-free.

* ''VideoGame/WhiteDayALabyrinthNamedSchool'', a Korean survival horror was released only there. An English was planned by the UK-based 4AM Entertainment, even featuring screenshots and a tentative boxart of the translated version, but it was unfortunately canceled before it was finished.
