Ghostlight’s worldwide Steam releases could help Japanese role-playing games

GamesBeat writes, "Ghostlight is an expert on localizing Japanese games, but we don’t hear of the company much in North America. That may be about to change as the European publisher has been working for months to bring Japanese role-playing games from consoles to PCs worldwide.

It announced its first today, a strategy RPG called Agarest: Generations of War (pictured), which is now visible on Steam Greenlight and is the first entry in developer Idea Factory’s Agarest series." (Agarest: Generations of War, Ghostlight, PC, Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked)

So my reaction here took place in two stages.

First I says to myself, "Hey, that's a cool idea."

Then I says to myself, "Oh. They're doing Idea Factory games. Never mind."

That's only the start! They've published Shin Megami Tensei games, Persona, The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, Shadow Hearts, etc.

Once Steam takes on JRPGs and can do fighting games well, then there will be no more need for PlayStations and Xboxes.

Yeah that'll be interesting to see. It's still weird for me to see the Ys games on there.
