Namco could do with hiring some better localisation services. At least if they're going to continue running Tales of as one of their franchises.

A year to localise Tales of Vesperia; a year and a half to localise Tales of Graces; two years to localise Tales of Xillia. They're getting worse as time goes on.

Plus the fact that Vita's userbase isn't enough to warrant it. I'd say there was an easy 100k physical + x% digital sales to be made from the USA alone (using P4G as a benchmark). If you can't get a profit out of that, then yeah, something is wrong.

And as Badgenome & Rol say: What the fuck was their excuse for not localising these titles when they were on the DS? Can't play the "small userbase" card for that.

Oh well. Suppose I should thank the stars we're getting Xillia.


They did say recently they want to shorten localization times so let's see how that goes. I wonder if the fact that they can use the same voice actors again and the same resouces (like text since there's a lot of stuff borrowed from Xillia 1 --> Xillia 2) can help them get Xillia 2 out fast.

hopefully

 

i bet it's still somehow going to take forever though..

Isn't the main cast of Xillia 2 new?

Regardless, I hope you're right about most of this.  



like said in another thread; just sub it and release it digitally

What are their excuses for not bringing over the PS3 Tales games?



Around the Network

Considering how often JPG's sell better in NA then Japan it's their loss IMO. Tales is not exactly a big seller in japan either.

MONEY , PROFIT 

the fact that for them  , Western gamers prefer Shoot games (Call of , Battlefield) , Graphics .

Maybe I'm wrong  ...

The voice actors in Japan apparently only license their vocals for use in the Japanese market. So even just subbing the game, would require re licensing all the vocals. I don't get why they don't just use N64 language and go "blu blu blu" to everything XD



RIP Dad 25/11/51 - 13/12/13. You will be missed but never forgotten.

they should have atleast give it to a company willing to bring it over *cough* Xseed *cough*

Yeah  I've read about licences on Xseed forums . Man , Japanese companies have to change their politics about this and make their voices accessible to the world
