Ys IV Remake To Be Localised?

News Rumours PS Vita RPG Sony

It looks like Ys Celestra: Sea of Trees will be close to localisation in English if an interview with Gamasutra is led to believe. Falcom president Toshihiro Kondo was quoted in the interview, saying “We’re hoping the Western audiences will really enjoy our new PlayStation Vita Ys game, Celceta no Jukai, and we’re putting a lot of effort into it.” This means that the game is more than likely already been approved for an English release, which would make Ys fans jump for joy. An early (and probably only) contender for the localisation duties would be none other than XSEED, who has worked on The Legend of Heroes: Trails of the Sky, another Falcom game.

In the same interview, Kondo also revealed that releasing their games into the US market will allow the software developer to better understand which parts of the game are lacking. This is to make sure that the developers can make games that will appeal to both Japanese and Western markets. A word of caution, however, because if it all goes wrong, the developer might end up alienating both the Japanese and Western markets.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
