I really, really, REALLY hope this game gets a North American localization someday. Looks awesome!

Just buy Graces F than Xillia will be localized and maybe even the Vita Tales game.

Gotta love how Namco holds your games hostage. If you don't buy this year old Wii port we're going to assume that our new games aren't going to sell either!

keeps buffering but from what o've seen i think I would really enjoy this game. Especially since the battle system resembles kingdom Heart's gameplay.

As long as Graces F does well, we should get Xillia as well. I remember seeing ana rticle about Abyss 3D also needing to do well, but I hope that was just wishful thinking.

I'll be deeply shock if Bamco based the release of Xillia in the west with the sales of Graces: F because Xillia easily doubled the sales of Graces: F in Japan and usually that alone is a good indicator of a game getting localize.

So Bamco localize this baby and take my cold hard earned cash!!!

Hicken2316d ago

Don't get me wrong. I don't want them to do it that way. I want the game, regardless, as both a tales fan and a fan of RPGs. Just saying that, with the current trend in denying games to the West because of a perceived disinterest, Graces F and Abyss doing well would reassure them.

Oh no man, I completely understand what your saying.

I've said before that the localization of JRPGs to the west sadly hinges on unrealistic sales expectation of the Japanese companies that makes them.

So if ever Bamco does continue the trend and doesn't bring over Xillia because they had an unrealistic sales expectation for Graces: F or Abyss 3D then I will be immensely disappointed at them again.

I love this game even though I don't understand what the hell they're saying =D

Trust me it's much better to not understand sh1t but to enjoy the passion and performance of voice actors in comparison to understand everything from lazy voice actors that make your ears bleed.
So as I keep saying when we r talking about JRPG subs > dubs "ALWAYS"
