Level 5 Teaser Site Hints at Guild02 Localisations

Posted by Lee Meyer

The black box returns

After U.S. trademarks were filed for titles that appear to be localisations of Level-5's Guild02 games, Level 5 International America has launched a teaser site similar to the one released for last year's Guild01 series.

The Guild collections include small, unique titles from well-known game designers. Last year, Level 5 released three of the four Guild01 titles in the west. Yoot Saito's Aero Porter and Yasume Matsuno's Crimson Shroud were released on the 3DS eShop, while Suda51's Liberation Maiden saw release on the eShop and iOS. Yoshiyuki Hirai's Omasse Rental Weapon Shop was not localised because the game made heavy use of Japanese cultural references that western audiences wouldn't understand.

Two of Guild02's titles are expected to see western release. Keiji Inafune's Bugs vs. Tanks! and Kazuya Asano's Starship Damrey have been trademarked, while Kazu Ayabe's Monsters Come Out on Friday has not, leading some to speculate that it won't be localised. There's no confirmation of when these titles may be formally announced. This Wednesday, Nintendo will air a 3DS-focused Nintendo Direct episode, so perhaps we will hear something about these games there.

Are you looking forward to the next wave of Guild titles? Are you disappointed that Monsters Come Out on Friday may not be localised? Let us know in the comments section.

At the moment, my interest for these titles goes

Monsters Appear on Friday > Starship Damrey > Bugs vs. Tanks. I have a lot of respect for Inafune, but the other two titles just seem much more creative and interesting, which is what I enjoyed so much about Guild01. It's a shame that Monsters might not get localised, but I understand since it seems very tailored to Japanese audiences.

Yes, I am disappointed about Monsters come out on friday and Omasse rental weapon shop.

Crimson Shroud was a blast and I plan on downloading Liberation Maiden and maybe Aero Porter when they are discounted.

I really like the Guild games as eShop downloads. Hope they keep 'em coming to the West.

Aw man, I really hope Monsters Come Out on Friday makes it out somehow. I'm looking forward to it and Starship Damrey equally. Not entirely sold on Bugs Vs. Tanks.

Well, Crimson Shroud and Liberation Maiden are a blast to play, so I'm pretty sure that level of quality will return with these titles.

@TwilightV I know... that title seems to be the most anticipated one of the Guild02 collection, but as of yet it's only Monsters Come out on Friday which is in the dark...

I'm only interested in Monsters Come Out on Friday and Starship Damrey. I wasn't really impressed with what I have seen of Bugs vs Tanks.

Monsters Come Out on Friday is really the only game in the collection I'm interested in. If it's not localized I probably won't buy the other two. If it IS localized I'll buy all three.

Your move, Level-5.
