Grandia and Seiken Densetsu III's ghost ships aren't that bad.

The fact that Square Enix is bringing out Kingdom Hearts 1.5 should be the biggest indicator this will come out. Kingdom Hearts 1.5 requires more effort to localize because of the 385/2 Days videos. Final Fantasy X and X-2 have like one single section that doesn't already have voice acting, and advertising it as the International versions will guarantee sales. It's a really cheap localization with a large guaranteed profit.

The only new dialogue they'd have to record would be Last Mission in X-2 and I think they could get away without out doing that. It's not like there would be a huge amount of effort required in bringing it over. Hell, they're bringing over Kingdom Hearts 1.5 and that has the Final Mix version of 1.

The International version of X already has a complete English version (Europe) and X-2 wouldn't require that much extra voice acting or translating.

I would prefer they do it with the spinoff titles. That were all exclusive to the PS2 (with the occasional PSP port) with the exception of Ar Tonelico Qoga. I really want to see a new Mana Khemia or something.

Nier looked kind of weird. Like, low-tier PS3/XBox360 graphics, but with really, really shiny textures and lighting.

Hiroki Kikuta is the Secret of Mana composer. He did Koudelka, Soul Calibur V as well as some arrange albums for Touhou project in the last few years. He's around, just not that prolific. He did Seiken Densetsu and Romancing SaGa as well.

It's just the PS1 version.

Oh, that is certainly true, Nocturne especially. The story revolves around several 'reasons' which are existing philosophies made the reason for existence.

And Digital Devil Saga tends to sit somewhere in between. Although both DDS games and Nocturne share the dubious honor of having insanely huge final dungeons. They make you feel you are climbing an enormous tower better than most other games I've played.

I've ordered them too, but from what I've heard, the first one is good, but the second one is so much better that it kind of overshadows the first.

I'm looking forward to it, but I hope I get a job so I can buy a Vita first.

I really enjoyed Ys SEVEN. The world was interesting, the gameplay was great and the music was awesome. I had played the original Ys once through 'perfectly legal means' ages ago before Xseed really was a thing and I couldn't figure out the gameplay, but thanks to SEVEN, I got I+II for the PSP and Origins and Oath in Felghana for Steam. I even hunted down the PS2 version of Ark of Napishtim. I'm hoping Falcom does a remake of Ys V in the future. I like their remakes, they actually fix things and most of them aren't completely identical *coughFinalFantasy1cough*.

I think his accent was intentional. His mother has a british accent, and he's surrounded by american accents, so it makes sense that his accent would be somewhere between. He has my dad's accent actually. We call it the 'Mid-Atlantic'.

This sounds like an Atlus Japan decision. There is no reason for Atlus USA not to release Eternal Punishment PSP, especially as Innocent Sin presumably didn't sell that badly. They did release Growlanser which wasn't guaranteed to sell at all after all. However, if there's something going on with Index, Atlus USA has their hands tied, because when it comes to in house Atlus titles, Atlus USA most likely is stuck with the decisions of Atlus Japan.

Especially if it's Atlas Japan assuming the PSP is completely dead here.

If anything, the Wii would have hurt its chances. The PS3 has a lot of jRPGs (of varying quality) and the Xbox has a bunch as well. The Wii has like 4. Last Story, Arc Rise Fantasia, Tales of Symphonia Dawn of the New World and Xenoblade. Or, and Rune Factory Frontier I guess. And most people wouldn't look at Arc Rise Fantasia or DotNW and say that they herald great things for Wii jRPGs. (Arc Rise Fantasia was pretty good, it just had a horrible first impression from the acting).
