tri-Ace RPG Exist Archive Coming to North America on October 18

exist archive 04-25-16-1

Aksys Games has announced they’re localizing tri-Ace’s Exist Archive: The Other Side of the Sky.

The game will be released for PlayStation 4 and PS Vita on October 18th in North America. A European release is currently not confirmed.

The side-view RPG follows a dozen main characters following their death at the hands of an evil god named Yamatoga, with the protagonist and the other eleven members of the dirty dozen becoming immortal carriers of his now sundered soul.

    What have they done?

    That’s news to me. I played 999, VLR, and Muramasa Rebirth, which had good localizations.

    A couple of games and VNs they localized are pretty terrible in translation
    They also seem to react badly to criticism.

    Yeah, I know they may have questionable translations, but they don’t bother me, and besides, they’re the kings of niche physical releases. As this will be out both Physically and Digitally. (For Exist Archive, I mean.)

    Reserving expectations due to no mention of a physical Vita release and previous Aksys fuckery, but I’m really excited for this one.

    Ugh. The models look so damn ugly in this. Shame because I think the art is gorgeous.

    One day Google translate will be so good that all these shitty localisation companies will be on suicide watch.

    Probably going to pick it up used. Aksys has a decent track record with some blemishes but just the fact that their PR is so unprofessional is a big turnoff.

    Most of their localizations are pretty good.

    Mostly disappointed that the new Tri Ace game wasn’t picked up by a publisher I’d have no qualms about supporting.

    Yeah, I know they really don’t reply much back in for some stuff socially (only the important bits), but yeah, fans like myself can understand the points gradually and tell the rest what they need to know, on a case by case basis. Besides, their track record is only great when they pick up newer BB or GG titles, the rest though, is a mixed case.

    Nice. How does it run on Vita?
    I’ve heard Setsuna ran poorly on it, as well as Atelier Shallie+ and A Sophie.

    Actually I believe the localization for newer GG and BB titles is done by Arcsys themselves. Aksys just publishes console versions in NA. Steam releases are self published by Arcsys and they seem to retain the rights to the localization.

    Aksys did put out a badass LE for Xrd -SIGN- though.

    Yeah, I know the proceses how they do these days, and yes, a nice badass LE for Sign and hope there’s one for Revelator stateside, there’s on for JP right now tho, but I’ll wait on the English release.

    I fucking hate these meme translations so fucking much. it’s like they’re trying to piss us off.

    The hell? Aksys has been fine in every game of theirs I have played.

    Wow…seriously? Why are games these days getting memes shoved in their shit?!

    Very good, I really like the artwork and I figured someone would’ve picked it up sooner than later. Let just hope that Aksys puts effort into pushing it.

    Has issues, yes. Worse than Nisa… Well, just bad Otome translations isn’t quite enough to be worse than them.

    Because we live in the social media/internet age were meme’s are becoming popular and they are trying to reflect that. It’s not something I want in my games but that’s why its there.

    This needs to stop. Seriously.
