Publisher XSEED has admitted that it won't be bringing Medabots: Dual to the west. The news follows Natsume's admission that the previous game in the series, Medabots 7, also won't be making the jump from Japan to North America and Europe.

When asked about Medabots: Dual on its Facebook page, XSEED replied:

Sorry, but not likely. We don’t have anyone here familiar with that series, so without an in-house “cheerleader” stubbornly withholding the office Dragonball-themed cookies until everyone else caves, the series will never be put up to a vote, much less approved.

Were you hoping to see the game in the west? Are you hoping that another publisher will pick up the title? Let us know by posting a comment below.
