ESRB Leaks Localized Release of Wizardry Title

edited March 2011 in Latest Updates
As paradoxical as it sounds, the ESRB has become an invaluable resource in leaking games before their official announcement. Case in point: a new Wizardry title.

    DUDE! SWEET!

    I wonder if the other PS3 one will get localized, too....

    I am SO getting this game.

    I keep forgetting Japan still makes Wizardry games. For a moment I thought Sir-Tech had risen from their graves.

    Sir-Tech pulling an Altered Beast would be pretty sweet, but at least Japan does make good Wizardry games. I thoroughly enjoyed the demo to one of the PSN ones.

    As a long time Wizardry fan, I kinda wish this was getting a disc-based release. There'd be something amusing about having the series represented across all the console generations (with the boxes/games to prove it).

    Hooray! I remember the PS2 one that came over here, and it was excellent.

    Well, it looks like I now have the opportunity to personally learn the difference between the Western and Eastern Wizardry series. :)

    Nice, I was hoping it would get localized but didn't expect it to.

    You haven't played the demos yet? They are on the Japanese PSN store.
    Never buy a game published by D3 Publisher that is not WKCII. They cheated on their fans by releasing a game that they didn't support not even for a year and they released a rushed translation.

    Nope, I like to play stuff with text that I can fully understand. Yes, even demos.

    Hell, not even that, I can't imagine Wizardry: Tale of the Forsaken Land is that pricey on eBay.

    well I didn't saw much difference in game play but just in visual style who gives the game a anime like feel with the portraits that looks like the ones Falcom do on their games.

    I am definitely going to check this out. I downloaded a Japanese demo of a Wizadry game and it looked really interesting. I hope it's good. You know, XSeed is bringing all these awesome games stateside but they're all for PSP. I don't play PSP so I've been jealous as hell all this time. Finally the PS3 gets one. I want them to bring that Trails in the Sky game to PS3, too.

    That's pretty much beyond XSEED's ability, unless Falcom ports it first.

    I don't play PSP
    (in Adam Savage voice) "Well there's your problem!" ;)

    ...Seriously, though, the PSP is like, my favorite system ever. You should totally get one -- they're super-cheap now, and WELL worth the money.

    Or he could wait for the NGP since it seems Falcom have a NGP developer kit in their office.

    If they do a very awesome game on NGP I'm counting on you to convince Xseed to localize it.

    I don't think a lot of convincing will be needed, unless it's like... a Nintendogs-style pet game.

    ...Falcomongoose. (:

    (Actually, I would totally play that! Heheheheh)

    There are some English screenshots here. Also, XSeed announced that the game would be available this spring :)

    But I'm confused... It's that the first or sencond game? There's 2 in the JPSN store.

    I wonder how much this is going to cost. Does anyone know how much the game cost in Japan?

    I think they where $1500 yen but I'm not sure and I no longer have a PS3 to check.

    No no no. I'm the type of gamer that likes to finish one game completely before moving on to the next. If I bought a PSP there would all of a sudden be a million more games added to my list of games I feel OBLIGATED to play. Hahaha.
