Currently, there are no plans to release a GameCube-compatible keyboard in the US. Please check http://www.nintendo.com for updated information about keyboard availability.'
remember now, they said currently there are no plans for a keyboard to be released, that doesnt mean that they will never come out with one. just keep that in mind.
btw, does anyone know for sure that an imported keyboard will work with the US version of the game and on a US cube? just curious. only answer this if you have tested it yourself.
