Japanese visual novels aren't very well known here. Yet, Aksys Games makes quite the effort to localize titles like Hakuoki and Zero Escape for a Western audience.
they do take a lot of risks unlike other companies that don't
To be fair, a lot of companies take "real risks". Atlus has taken countless risks and many of them paid off. NISA takes a risk whenever they localize an Idea Factory, Gust or similar game. Koei took a risk on localizing Kaizoku Musou 1/2 and Hokuto Musou 1/2. Sega took a lot of risks, though I don't think they have the cash to do it anymore. etc
of the bunch, I believe SEGA took the most risks and some where ahead of their time. it's unfortunate how things has ended.
Oh most definetly they do take great risks and me personally I show my appreciation by buying their games, and collectors items/editons. I love Aksys! And so does my wallet and consoles.
Love Aksys. I do my job and buy their games.
I love all niche publishers. Especially Atlus, cuz Persona and Catherine. I have a long way of acquiring every Nisa and gust's games though.
