Exactly... let's all hope that Bleach was a fluke and they won't be wasting any more funds on localizing games like that after that one is released.[/quote][/quote]alucardXlll wrote:True that the chances of any other company but namco localizing this is zero, but it also has a high chance since namco decided not to localized the original, they might not care much if a different company decides to take the reigns.
And to those saying they prefer NIS not to do mainstream anime games, the way i see it is since NIS decided to localize BLEACH SI they are trying to branch out into other games and genres, to widen their audience, searching for a challenge and increasing their experience with different games. Which any self respecting game publisher should do.
We should be supporting NIS for trying this instead of saying stuff like

Does not bother me since most JRPG are long games as well, the story for the game was created by Oda Eiichiro the creator of one piece, so any one piece fan is going to like it. The bleach game is an interesting one because it looks like the combination between samurai warriors chronicles and the control of a DBZ fighting game and i do not know if that's a good combo.
All i see is NIS branching out. Cave story is going to be AMAZING and as much as it hurts me to say it, my beloved JRPG are slowly dying. Which might be why NIS is branching out. I hope the FFXIII Versus and the next persona game breath some life into the JRPG's.
Gigant battle is going to be released for the DS in europe and since the DS isn't region lock there is no need to bring it to america. I respect your opinion that you think it was a bad idea to port Unlimited Cruise SP, but it if was a really bad idea
1. It wouldn't have sold 80,000 in 3 days after launch
2. Namco wouldn't have ported the game.

Last Story which looks like a great game and has created alot of Buzz hasn't even been confirmed to be localized, if you looks at the line up for E3 starting next week there barely any mention of noteworthy JRPG's. Websites like IGN, GameTrailers, Gameinformer, 1up all they talk about are games like arkham city, legend of zelda, mass effect 3, uncharted and you know the likes.
but anyways this is getting WAY out of topic. All i want is that NIS employees at least give this forum an earnest look.

With publishers if they do not branch out and show they can handle different genres than big publishers will never come to them to request they publish their games.
regarding E3 and TGS, it is required that JRPG make some kind of impression at places like E3 otherwise less and less JRPG's will be localized to America. It cannot be just dismissed by saying E3 is E3.
And if it is true JRPG's are getting better. can you name me at least 10 good quality JRPG's that are coming to the states this year so i can add them to my buy list?
