Siliconera: The maxim I got from the chat with Mr. Akenaga is NIS America is focusing on quality over quantity. Just because there is an RPG with sprites, and appears to be something similar to NIS America's previous games doesn't mean they are going to license it for North America. This mantra is being applied to their parent company, Nippon Ichi Software's, releases too. Surprisingly, there are no current plans to release Jigsaw World: Daigekitou! Jig-Battle Heroes, a Nintendo DS game from Nippon Ichi set to come out in June, outside of Japan.
I was fortunate enough to squeeze in many of the reader questions, including the barrage of "are you working on game X" in the interview. However, if I didn't get to your question I apologize and please understand we were lucky to have this much time speaking with Mr. Akenaga."
