The Reasons So Many Japanese RPGs Never Make It To The United States

Jason Schreier: Feeling screwed? If you're an American fan of Japanese games, you certainly should be. Publishers in the East have not treated us very well over the past few decades. They've given us rushed and incomplete localizations. Often they don't send us North American ports at all. (3DS, JRPG, Nintendo DS, PC, PS3, PSP, Wii, Xbox 360)

Isn't 500,000 from donations a little unrealistic? It can't possibly cost that much to port a psp game? Tbh seeing as it's donations, 100,000 sounds a more realistic attainable goal but I really do hope this can help bring more games over to the states (providing they're region free).

i big mistake to choose Class of Heroes 2, it maybe good but hardly popular even amongst JRPG fans.

i would pay full price for Valkyria Chronicles 3, Suikoden PSP, Shining Hearts, Final Fantasy Type-0, Tales of Innocence, Frontier Gate.

$500k maybe too high for kickstarting a game like Class of Heroes. I'd still support this though and see where it goes.
