@JustinH Yeah, I hadn't even gotten around to playing the first yet when the second already came out. Bought them both, though. It didn't get any kind of advertising, either. I'm not sure how Nintendo expects stuff to sell. They could at least put it under an RPG heading on the front of the eShop or something. No one knew this game even existed.

@WiiLovePeace Weird, you're right... I never even noticed this game had English voices at all.

Xseed properly "localized" that first game. They didn't do it to upset people; they did it to try to make a profit. If they had made a profit, instead of losing money, we'd have gotten the second and we'd be getting the third.

@Captain_Toad It's an expensive game to translate and localize. It would still need to sell well on the eShop to even make a small profit. I wish Namco themselves would do it, but Xseed would not be smart after the money they lost on the first one. Unfortunately it's just not as simple as translating it and slapping it on the eShop.

@WiiLovePeace First off all, the game was not dubbed. It still had the Japanese voices (which were just occasional sound clips anyway). Secondly, even if it did have English voices, which it didn't, why would that make it their fault that the game didn't sell well? I'm personally grateful they put so much work into that game. They even advertised it. It didn't sell. They would have been crazy to localize the second one. I wish someone would pick up the third for an eShop-only release, but these kinds of games are expensive to localize, and Xseed would be making a poor business decision to do it.

I think I want this game more than anyone, but don't blameshift.
