Though I'm not an Atelier fan, I am content that TK made a good decision for once.

I'm curious about how the boycott of Ayesha went, I would assume it to be very successful if it would push Koei to make this kind of announcement.

Great to hear this. I love the Atelier Series, but as i put the Ayesha game into my ps3 and found no option for japanese voice i was kinda dumbfounded. Luckily i am getting most of my games for free since i am part of the press, but that doesnt count for the other 99,9% of the people. I would have been really furious if i had paid 50€ and didnt get the japanese dub...

Now i hope that we will get someday in the future a Atelier, thats more like Atelier Iris. Loved those games way better then the Arkland games ^^

It didn't bother me since I was just happy that the games get localized since there was a time when they were not. English dub only, Japanese voices only or Dual-Audio, i'm happy either way.

Lol wrong Atelier Ayesha the alchemist of dusk is English and you can't change it over atelier ayesha the alchemist of dusk is best game duo storyline and gameplay and graphics it in 1080p not upscale form 720p to 1080p because no jagged edges and Atelier Ayesha the alchemist of dusk is one not boycott.

1080p in exchange for crummy English dubs...I think the scale difference is obvious here.

I'm still boycotting Tecmo Koei(read: dickheads) until they re-release Ayesha with dual audio. I refuse to spend money on a bad dub without the option of Japanese language just because Tecmo decided "fuck NISA and fuck the fans, we want all of the money to ourselves". If GUST releases another game on par with the Ar tonelico or Iris series that makes me want to break the boycott, I'll import them.

Seeing as they seemed genuinely surprised at the amount of demand for it, I think it's down to gross incompetence at not knowing what they had with the Atelier series rather than some form of money-grabbing measure.
After all, they released a least one title before even announcing it.

I want you to go back and read the OP where it is explicitly stated that all Atelier titles will have dual audio, making your boycott literally pointless as the purpose has already been achieved.

I hope they just stop voice overs I like to just read the text.

I would imagine there is a slider for voices.
I'm fairly sure previous games had this, no reason to stop offering it.

I know this is long past the point of it being relevant, but I take offense to this.

Boycotting one of the best PS3 RPGs created because no Japanese? Oh well, boycotter's loss. But they have to keep in mind that not buying games as niche as these actually put future releases in jeopardy since the games only really sell to the hardcore fans.
