Level-5 and Ghibli? How else could you spell Nirvana?
looks like magic
Maybe with 'F' Nirfana... It sounds the same but looks completely stupid.
I have a funny feeling this won't come to western shores.....
if they don't localise it that would be THE MISTAKE of the next year
Considering how a majority of Level 5 do make it to the west and how big and criticaly acclaimed studio Ghibli's movies are I so no reason why this shouldn't make it here. Even if Level-5 doesn't end up publishing it, it should have no problems finding q publisher. Maybe Atlus or even Sony will publish it.
Actually Coolfool, this was already announced to be coming to western shores, although they have no release window for it in the west yet, at least none that they have publicly announced.
I hope is comes over to the west also. I am really excited about this game. I don't remember hearing about the announcement that it would be localised.
Very hard to tell that this is a videogame and not an animé by some of the screenshots. Which in this case is a compliment, of course. Looks great!
I'd imagine it'll definitely be localised. Level 5 localise their games, and Studio Gibli localise their anime. Both are aware of the benefits of addressing the western market, too.
Day one purchase.
First day purchase confirmed! -End statement
People, relax. It´s akready confirmed for the west. They're bringing it next year. Level-5 is gonna open up an office in Santa Monica, so that can be the reason why they will bring it over. Not speculation but a fact.
