"So, here's Super Hydlide, on the Sega Genesis and Virtual Hydlide, on the Sega Saturn. Virtual Hydlide is actually a remake of the original. While Super Hydlide is a Genesis port of the third Hydlide game from Japan! Yes, you heard me right. This is the third installment. The second one was only in Japan. Japan should've kept them all... and incinerated them."
The Angry Video Game Nerd in his review of Super Hydlide and Virtual Hydlide

Games that never made it outside of Japan. Now there are some hidden gems not released outside of Japan that many people enjoy, these aren't those gems.

Games like this are considered as "Kusoge" (クソゲー), which translates to "Shitty game". This term was coined by Japanese essayist Jun Miura after playing the Famicom version of Ikki, an arcade game developed by Sunsoft in 1985.

Some Japan-only video games weren't Kusoge, but had still flopped in the market.
