Namco Bandai is still not interested in localizing Vita's Tales of games

PSVita Blog: "Despite being a focal point in SCEE’s #jrpgvita campaign, Tales of series producer Hideo Baba stated there were no plans to localize Tales of Innocence R, and Tales of Hearts R for western markets:

—I’m sure you’ve heard of the #JRPGVita movement on Twitter. Many of these requests have been for the PS Vita Tales games. Are there any updates on their localization?

Baba: I have received so many requests about the PS Vita Tales of titles from fans. But, as of now, I don’t have any specific plans to release those titles in western countries.

Both Tales of Innocence R, and Tales of Hearts R were remakes of earlier Tales titles on the Nintendo DS. Those versions of the games were not localized. Namco Bandai released an iOS port of Tales of Hearts R in Japan last week." (Hideo Baba, PS Vita, Tales of Hearts R, Tales of Innocence R)

I think the term "idiot" is pretty appropriate here. Namco never fails to amaze me...

Nah. They'll probably port the iOS version w/c just came out in Japan.

Sucks for VITA.

"I have received so many requests"

So you admit that the demand is there... you just don't give a shit. That's nice. Don't expect me to buy any of your other games because I won't.

VITA TV is the only hope left.. If that sells well, then I don't see a reason why Companies would change their mind.
