We're all painfully aware that Project X Zone is looking pretty sweet right now. It's always been an outside bet for release outside of Japan though; the fact that its prequel Namco × Capcom never got released in the West doesn't exactly inspire confidence.
However, the chances of the game making it to these shores have risen a little, thanks to the efforts of Tekken supremo Katsuhiro Harada. He tweeted:
I proposed localization of Project X Zone.
After the predictable flood of positive tweets from his followers, he cautiously added:
Not decided yet, but It will be realized if I continue proposing.
Given Harada-San's stature within Namco Bandai, it's definitely a positive thing that he's pushing for a worldwide release. Nothing is certain yet, but this is a good start.
Project X Zone is due for release in Japan on 11th October.
I wish there was something us gamers could do to help get this localized.
Potentially good news everyone!
I'd definetly get this if it got a Pal release, but I'm not getting my hopes up.
I hope he succeeds! This looks great!
I can see it now, [tomorrow]: no project x zone for the west!
It looks alright but wouldn't know if I would get it or not.
That would be nice if it did,I don't play a lot of RPGs but I would get this.
Hopefully it happens. This game looks pretty solid.
Yeah, I read the tweets myself as I follow the guy on twitter. Good news there's at least some motivation to get it outside Japan. However, doesn't necessarily mean it'll be released in EU.
I just found a petition online for the localisation of Project X zone. Unfortunately, only 23 people have signed it -____-
Hopefully it gets out of Japan, it looks too awesome to stay only there. I still wish they would change the name though.
He can't hear a no for an answer.
go harada go!!
Make it happen.
Oh yes please! would love to see this
Come on baby lets go! I want this game so bad! I want make a tag team with Megaman, Soma, Yuri so badly!
99,9 % sure i'd get it week one if it's released in Europe.
I hope it comes to eShop as a digital download as well
i hope so, it looks really good
Just you watch next month! Capcom: "We've made the decision to remove Mega Man from this game..."
Day one purchase
I hope it does get localized. i've got my fingers crossed!!
Better be, I want to get this game
Seriously, Thanks Harada. I'm hoping it comes this way. You got my money, day one.
I'd buy it if it got localized.
