Sega has no plans to bring the recently announced PlayStation Vita title Phantasy Star Nova over to the West, Sega of America told Sega Addicts.
BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! !!!!!!!!! F*** You Japan for not trying to localize games like Yakuza 5 or FF Type 0 and more.
Too bad you couldn't Type O. It was epic. Why not import?
why not import ? are you kidding most gamers can't speak japanese
Blame sega and SE, there are still good japanese companies which localize most of their games (ATLUS sadly acquired by sega, Tecmo Koei has localized almost all their Vita games)
Sega: "No plans to release Persona 5 in the Western market" I hope Atlus was doing localisation throughout development
Sega Sammy bought Atlus. Not Sega. Look them up, they are not Sega.
SEGA! Come on... http://www.reactiongifs.com...
I jope we don't have this problem for Atlus games.
We will when SEGA saw Persona, SMT, and Atlus games doesn't break a million copies >.<
Now this company owns Atlus, so looking forward to that.
I rather import a game, not understand it, but enjoy it .rather than crying to sega to do something. Sega will never listen. I will have to say deal with it because nothing will change with sega.
How can you enjoy something you don't understand? If you don't know what's being said then you can't progress in games like this. If you have to watch play through videos to advance in the game then it takes away from the enjoyment and the feeling of self accomplishment when you finish. You sir are not a real gamer.
I'm so happy Sega bought Atlus. /s
I know what you mean!, worst thing that could happen... Makes me whonder where Sony was in all this...sigh... Sega: lets buy a gaming company and not release our own games to the western market, cause that makes sense businesswise!!! fools.
*Sega Sammy. Which is not Sega
What are you talking about? Sega is Sega Sammy. Sega merged with Sammy remember. How can they be suddenly different?
And these guys just acquired Atlus....good luck!
I was just about make comment along these lines. I hope Sega Sammy keeps Sega and Atlus more or less separate except when the two want to work together.
Considering that both Sega and Atlus have made games for all platforms, everyone is gonna need that luck.
This is the reason why I was concerned about Sega acquiring Atlus. Sega sucks when it comes to localization. >_<
They killed Anarchy Reigns because of this that game had an amazing Multiplayer but was killed by sega localize delaying it for 6 months
They're horrible. Ugh. I wonder if they recognize they have a bad reputation amongst gamers regarding their localization. Surely they realize that they have bad PR when it comes to this. grrr...
This is bullshit
^ This x whatever Monster Hunter 4 sold. I'm just going to be diligent and keep supporting Sega and Atlus games. Money talks, you want this game then buy their shit available here, that simple.
My bigger concern is Sega not localizing AND region locking games; that would piss me off to boycott them next.
Yeah yeah... Big surprise... Sorry guys but I hate Sega for not localizing. F**k them!
I effin' knew it! Although a lot of times companies will say this, and then end up eventually localizing their games. Really though, we in the West are missing out on so many great Japanese games, and it's really getting irritating.
Inb4 "no plans to release Persona 5 in the western market".
Atlus is doomed.
Sega was the wrong company to buy Atlus, they did not even release Valkyria Chronicles III to the PSP for the western market...makes one think if they even would release P5 overseas.
The ABSOLUTE worst company. I'd rather Microsoft bought ATLUS than Sega. Goddamn it Sega! I try my hardest to keep some faith in you when you make great games, but when you do dumb crap like this, it's hard to not hate you. Hell, even Square Enix isn't this bad. At least they're likely lying to us about Type 0.
And these guys acquired atlus, smh
Atlus games will be missed... ;(
i want to believe what sega is so blunt with these comment,for what is waiting what the fans begin to make movement to get the game,sad but with project diva was succefull.
I've waited...for a single player PS... since I was 8... GGGGGRRRRRRRR.... I don't even know who to be mad with at this point. My choices are SEGA for not localizing or deciding to make this game any sooner, the western market for pushing away so many releases from the east in favor of COD style games, myself for not learning japanese or the internet for bringing this news to my eyeballs in the first place.
you nailed with these man,sad true.
In other words, they don't give a s***.
And my hatred for Sega grows....
I really enjoyed the original Phantasy Star games on Sega.
damn you sega.. damn YOU!!!
Well damn. :-/ This sucks. Looks like import.
This sucks :(
So after all this time of not a single word about PSO 2 even being localized, they can take the time to comment telling us they won't be localizing PSO Nova.
So does that pretty much mean PSO 2 is never coming either?
Annoys me to no end they can tell people that but they can't say if PSO 2 is coming or not.
Sega are idiots when it comes to releasing games... They presume that all people in the west want is games like Sonic and Aliens Colonial Marines. They wonder why they don't really make and major money and the reason is that they want to cater mainly to Japan. Japan is a large country but it certainly isn't as big as USA. I live in UK which isn't big but would love some of Sega's titles like Yakuza 5 and Ishin, when it gets released for PS4. Now if there are at least some people in UK like me who would love these games released over here then I can only imagine how many in US would want them too. Aliens CM was a big pile of crap and Sonic should just curl up into a blue ball and die already. So games like Phantasy Star Nova and the Yakuza series should get released in the west as we want to enjoy them as much as the Japanese customers.
I'm not happy with this BS. Damn these clowns.
Now I fear the worst for Atlus games.
Good luck with Atlus games.
So if Atlus games don't do well here... is it bye bye Persona series?
I'm really not surprised by this news at all. It's SEGA we're talking about after all. We should let them know how we feel about the situation through social media.
This is why I hate Sega they suck at localizing games. Guess we won't see any atlus games in the west.
PLEASE RELEASE IT FOR VITA GAMERS WORLD WIDE SEGA! I mean, there's not a lot of blockbuster games like this I can look forward too. C'mon release it here too!!! D:
my question is why arent isnt it getting a localization? i refuse to believe its money at this point the list of games that by all rights should have got a localization over the last few years is getting pretty long
As more Japanese Games get announced for Vita more get announced not coming to the west. It gonna be another PSP situation. After 2014 and all these Japan Only JRPG and games don't get localized then Vita may end up dying out completely by late 2015 and 2016. But that just my two cents on it. It could change maybe not but yeah. The Future of Vita in the west is very slim. (Of course I expect several people disagreeing with my theory.)
And people are going to take notice of this and only hate the publishers more. Man, this vicious circle needs to be stopped.
We all know you don't care about the Vita. You have even gone as far to talk down the Vita several times before, in the Vita section and 3DS section. So why act like you care all the sudden? I disagreed because I have actually seen you post the complete opposite before. Not going to dig through your comment history and post here. You know very well what you have said in the past and If I cared enough I could easily find those comments. I don't really care that much though to bring that nonsense here right now. I know for fact you have taken quite few craps on the Vita in your day. So again I have to ask why act like you care? When you know yourself you really do not care at all about the PS Vita. You are actually very wrong about that also sure many games don't get localized but this just isn't for the PS Vita but at the same time the PS Vita has had a lot of Japanese games get localized. That could be the case in every consoles situation and if you actually cared about the Vita you would actually have seen the lot of Japanese games that actually were localized. There are always Japanese games that never get released here no matter what system you own unless it is the Xbox 360, that is an exception really since it isn't really popular in Japan anyway. Gravity Daze was localized. Shuhei just confirmed the the sequel shown at TGS is also going to be localized. Toukiden is getting localized, Soul Sacrifice was localized, Ragnarok Odyssey was localized, PSO 2 (well supposed to be localized hopefully that is still happening), They said ACE and Delta would be localized, Battle of Z is getting localized. I could pick more but you get the point there are even weird little JRPG's on the Vita too can't pronounce their names but they were localized as well. Even Sony had posted this in their Playstation blog not too long ago. Most of this information is there even most these games I even talking about you can find in older blog posts on the official Playstation blog. http://blog.us.playstation.... "This means you’ll see even more great games on PlayStation platforms, including new IP’s, ports, and localized products." They even said to contact @giocorsi on twitter to suggest games that you want or would like to be localized and that Sony will consider it. So what you are saying has very little truth to it and why because you of all people think JRPG's are the only thing to keep the Vita alive outside of Japan? Are you joking, JRPG's are not nearly as popular in NA or EU as they are in Japan not anymore. They have never been a selling point for any of the new system as of late. Maybe back in the PS1 days your passive aggressive attempt at trolling would have worked but JRPG's have not had that type of popularity here probably since the PS1 and PS2 days. So just ignore every other games that is released on the Vita, only JRPG's are worth playing and can sell the device? That sounds stupid for even systems selling in Japan even they have different genres of games that sell well and aren't all JRPG's. The 3DS is not selling on nothing but JRPG's in or outside of Japan either. I know you love to go on and on about how the 3DS dominates everything. So it is funny especially from you, hearing you say a system cannot sell well unless it has JRPG's when I highly doubt the only games you play on your 3DS are all JRPG's or anyone else for that matter. That is just ridiculous for any person who calls themselves an avid gamer to only play one genre of games.
dude I want a Vita and the JRPG I want aren't localize. I don't need a wall of text.
So much for Atlus giving a positive effect on Sega. -_-
Slayed! Atlus being owned by sega! Now you can get it for ps4 and vita. けど、日本語だけです。 (better start learning how to read japanese!)
Out of all the people who could have bought Atlus, how the hell and why did Sega of all people end up being the ones?
Well looks like I'm boycotting Sega indefinitely until they announce Valkyria Chronicles 3 or Persona 5 coming to the West.
Jeez you guys really need to shut up about Atlus. I completely understand and I will be pissed if they don't release games like Persona 5 over here, but pretty much every message is the same thing. It's basically all of y'all spamming "atlus will be missed". We get it
Looks like you guys didn't approve of my message. I completely agree but do we really need to spam the message board with the same thing? Can't we just "agree" with the first guy that posted it, isn't that what that button is for?
Sh!t!! well I guess Sega ignored their western fans again and with the acquisition of ATLUS? WTF man Atlus is very good company for localizing games and now this? If Sega localize their games it will be 2-3 years old or not make it at all I'm pissed right now SEGA please learn to trust your western fans..
smh what a shame! I swear that publishers think that western gamers are all about shooting.. I understand that most are but IM NOT! damn sega, give us some of that vita greatness! They bought atlus now too so who knows if the new personas & all will make it stateside now
Wouldn't expect anything less from Sega. How I now mourn Atlus -_-
Sadly, we'll be seeing more of this shit from Sega regarding Atlus games. -_-
