This isn't a recent phenomenon, either, back in the SNES vs. Genesis/Mega Drive days, the latter had a substantial lead in the European market. In short, why has Nintendo never had much success in the PAL regions?

Maybe they're still bitter about WWII and how Japan sided with Hitler.

Lack of sentimentality, which is what Nintendo relies on to keep their core fanbase.

I'm pretty sure Europe doesn't get Atlus RPGs until ages after release. I'm no Atlus fan so I don't care though.

You can't say we Europeans as a whole lack sentimentality. Brits and Germans definitely do, but Frenchies, Spaniards and us Italians have a ton of it (incidentally, Nintendo really is more successful in France).

the rest of Europe forgave Germany themselves, so I don't think so
