Longest delay between Japanese and European releases

With six years and 10 months between its Japanese debut and official release in Europe, Sin and Punishment is the rail shooter with the longest-delayed release. The game was actually developed for the Western market, and features English dialogue, but N64 sales were so low by the time it was completed that it was only ever released in Japan, in November 2000. The game finally came to Europe and America in September 2007 on the Wii Virtual Console, where it can be downloaded for 1200 Wii Points. The Western version still has the Japanese subtitles with the English dialogue.
