After a full-on day of Wii U focus thanks the Wii U Direct, let's give some love to 3DS and one of its hottest games due to arrive this summer. With Namco Bandai recently confirming its localisation, there are certainly a number of gamers looking forward to some RPG mash-up action in the upcoming Project X Zone; based on comments from Namco Bandai, we have strong hopes of the full, authentic experience making it West.
As reported by Siliconera, Namco Bandai has told the site that the Western release will ship with the original Japanese voice track accompanied by subtitles, with confirmation that the exact same characters will make the move outside of Japan. Namco Bandai also stated that the content of the game "should [be] the same as the Japanese version", which is to be expected.
While notable examples such as Wii classic Xenoblade Chronicles include both an English voice track as well as the Japanese original, perhaps it's an expense that Namco Bandai would rather avoid. Nintendo gamers — especially those with a fondness for The Legend of Zelda — shouldn't be unfamiliar with doing a lot of reading, and as the game is actually arriving outside of Japan, maybe we should just be grateful for subtitles.
What are your thoughts? Would you rather have listened to a new voice track in your native tongue, or are you happy enough to read subtitles? Let us know, as always, in the comments section below.
