Oh boy, here we go again.

>Xenoblade Disappears From Nintendo of America's Release Calendar

If they're not gonna release it in the US I'm gonna be pretty pissed. We already missed Fatal Frame 4, Captain Rainbow, Tales of Graces (36/40 in Famitsu and sold really well, too) and some other games that at very least looked good (I would mention 428, too, but I can forgive them for not translating what was essentially a VN).

Someone really needs to start a translation project for this. It looks like one of the best jRPGs to have come out in a long time.

>We already missed Fatal Frame 4, Captain Rainbow, Tales of Graces

All of those have translation projects. Fatal Frame 4 has been done for a while, and Captain Rainbow is around 45% complete. Although it's being put on hold for now for Giftpia's translation because they need a hacker for Captain Rainbow. Tales of Graces is pretty far along, too.

Huh, I tought we were out of the localization ghetto period of gaming. Might just be that I haven't checked out new Japanese game releases in a long time.
Picture related.
>> No. 366 [Edit]

Remember when you could actually go to the store, buy a game, go home and play it? Good times man, good times.

Seriously though, I'm pretty sure they'll ultimately lose more money by NOT translating those games. I fail to understand what criteria they use when they pick games to localize. Can't wait till the same thing happen to The Last Story.

And yeah, I know about Fatal Frame 4 and Captain Rainbow (although it's been stalled for months now, makes me wonder whether they'll ever finish it at all; then again, Tales of Innocence took much longer and they managed to get it done).

I didn't know about Tales of Graces, though. I sort of hoped they will localize the PS3 port as it's supposed to have tons of additional content.
>> No. 367 [Edit]
We are when it comes to nearly every other Japanese company out there. Namco and Nintendo just don't localize everything they put out, and likely never will. Namco have an excuse, as they put out tons of games that are solely intended for the Japanese market, but Nintendo really don't. It's just that Namco's track record with localizing the Tales series is awful, and Nintendo has been atrocious this gen, too.
>> No. 368 [Edit]

I hear Namco has some financial problems, though.
Speaking of Namco, they're supposed to release some information about the upcoming PS3 Tales game this Thursday.

I know. ;_;

And here's some scenery porn from Xenoblade.

I don't think we'll any storyrpgs released too soon in the west, what with the whole anti-JRPG crusade
>> No. 373 [Edit]
They did. They already went bankrupt once and probably had to ask for some kind of bailout.
>> No. 406 [Edit]

Bandai Namco trolling everyone again. They released a trailer of Tales of Xillia but I wouldn't count on localization if I were you.
>> No. 3771 [Edit]
Xenoblade Chronicles is heading to Europe on Wii this year with dual audio. The site also has a trailer up. There's still been no word of a US release, sadly, even though it was first shown at E3 in 2009.

There. Now shut up about it and stop derailing threads.
>> No. 3773 [Edit]
Huh? What gives? I'm 200% positive we had a separate thread with this announcement but I can't find it.
>> No. 3774 [Edit]
Natsume merged it with this one. And thank you Natsume. Sorry for continuing to derail this thread, I'll shut up about it now.

Also if it's heading to Europe, it might make it's way over here to America, but licensing take fukken forever to go through for large releases like this, so Nintendo is probably still dealing with this country's legal bullshit. But 2 years seems like a long time...

Than again, I'm probably spewing shit I don't know about again, not sure, best to wait for word from Nintendo.

That alone doesn't mean much. We've had a couple of Wii games that were released in Yurop (Disaster, Another Code R, Pikmin 2) but never made it to US.

Wii is region locked, right? Then again it isn't hard to bypass it I guess. I remember running my Muramasa by using gecko OS to boot it (as booting it normally forced system update which would probably brick my Wii). I bet running PAL games on NTSC consoles is possible if you use it. So if you want to actually buy Xenoblade the US release hardly matters. Then again you'll have to pay much more (because, as we all know, 1$=1€).

This country is full of bullshit. Filled with Jesus freaks and all sorts of malcontents.
>> No. 3782 [Edit]
I'm sure everyone's already aware of the Operation Rainfall movement to get US releases for Xenoblade (aka Monado: Beginning of the World), The Last Story, and Pandora's Tower, and if you haven't already, pre-order Monado on Amazon. Don't pre-order it if you don't actually intend to buy it, though, because this whole thing's going to backfire otherwise.
>> No. 3798 [Edit]
Well, that about wraps things up.

>Thank you for your enthusiasm. We promised an update, so here it is. We never say “never,” but we can confirm that there are no plans to bring these three games to the Americas at this time. Thanks so much for your passion, and for being such great fans!
