    Well, NISA isn’t known to do a good job for localizing games (translations, gamebreaking bugs, censorship, not allowing imports on the american/europe store which mean you have to buy their exclusives elsewhere with even more limited stocks, etc.).
    Not that Koei Tecmo and Idea Factory give the job easier for a Vita user too. I’m glad I’ve learned moonrunes well enough to just import directly from Japan.

    More extreme punishment mode?

    Not gonna lie I’m kinda interested in seeing how NISA handles this. I mean they’ll fuck it up, but for once I’m almost excited to see just how badly they do it.

    NISA and english dub only? You confused Atlus with NISA -.- for which english dub only is the standard… or are you talking about just Operation Abyss ignoring games released previously? Demon Gaze had option to pick jap dub.

    Ar Nosurge Plus can be bought outside of their shop.

    For gamebreaking bugs is responsible developer of game not publisher. Period.

    Censorship is also visible in IF, Atlus, Aksys etc.

    So yeah… it is haters hating.

    When pretty much everyone does the same thing, and bunch of guys make their holy crusade against one company it is very definition of hating.

    Don’t make mistake. I also do think that censorship is always a bad thing. But most of guys here act overly emotional without a tiny speck of being rational…. or without any knowledge about process of localization.

    I just started the first one. Wonder if this one will make it to the West?

    Operation Abyss has english dub-only as a recent example. I dunno if they have done the same treatement to some games in the past. But the icing in the cake was that they tried to lie about not being able to dual audio in Operation Abyss because “not enough free space” despite the jap version of the game is barely 1.2GB (Vita cartdrige can store 4GB of data).

    (Demon Gaze was left untouched as it’s just the Global Edition from Japan which also has english subs & dubs)

    Like I said before, the localized Ar NoSurge Plus can be bought elsewhere (like Play-Asia) but in very limited stock, and it doesn’t change that they tried to keep the physical version exclusive to America.

    I don’t think you can blame the developers when the original (jap) version of the game works fine but not the localized versions (see Witch and the Hundred Knight, Disgaea and the DLCs, …).
    I’ve also previously mentionned that other companies don’t make the job simplier too: Sega releasing a cut version of Yakuza 3 in the West, IF censoring Monster Monpiece and doing terrible translations since Re;Birth 2 (some guy originally from NISA is to blame for that), Koei Tecmo pushing digital-only localizations for the Vita, etc…

    But let’s be honest for a second, NISA has culminated the mistakes, alongside with the derogative attitude to critcism, for a long time and people arent “hating for the sake of hating” like you are still trying to imply.

    We’re also talking about a hobby (video games) that people can take at heart so there is nothing irrational at being upset/angry when some team is butchering what you like. (to fit their views and the non-existant audience aka SJWs)

    When I reached the ending in Natural Doctrine there was no english subs for the characters endings. I was playing with JP audio.

    Huh… that’s exactly the reason

    “you don’t know”

    1. Vita cartridge comes in various sizes… that’s another thing that “you don’t know” And each of those in more expensive from another. (yup talking about game cartridge not memory cards)
    2. No they DID not localize Ar Nosurge Plus. It’s game localized by Koei which decided to ask NISA to release game in NA only. As Koei holds right to that title NISA couldn’t do anything with it. Just as in case of Ateliers. When Koei Europe was overhelmed by lots of negative voices about them not caring about Europe they posted enigmatic post saying “we will see what we can do about it”… and that’s it. The only company here to take a blame is Koei and Koei only.
    3. You are poorly informed about availabilty of Ar Nosurge Plus. It’s available in lots of shops… and for a price lots cheaper than any limited edition in Europe. (just ordered it few days ago)
    4. Oh? I can and I did. How many publishers need to repeat that the one who implement changes is the developer and not publisher? You don’t believe NISA? Fine than believe XSEED which also works like that.
    5. You mean Nick Doerr? To my knowledge he is not translator of Re;Birth 2… but hey… better believe someone who just heard about random employee who came to IF from pleague (NISA) and started ruining things.

    You guys are hating for the sake of hating.

    Most of times you base your hate on rumors… and you partially confirmed that. Blame publisher for mistakes of developers. And so on.

    I don’t like censorship. But hating one company because bunch of kids blame them for being the evil boss… come on… that’s lame.

    Most of stuff circulating about NISA is either made up… or comes from people who comment without any knowledge about whatsoever

    I would defintively love to discuss more but the dismissive tone you use to me and towards others, and that last paragraph, isn’t going to give you any favors

    3 needlessly censored games in 3 years is all I need to know

    Not even touching their inability to catch bugs

    And another game that will be needlessly censored in order to pander to the hyper sensitive idiots that will never play the game, can’t wait to skip this one as well.
