Mugen Souls

So I was just curious what everyones thoughts were on the chance of Mugen Souls being localized..... I'm really hoping its possible as this one looks right up my alley.... That and there was no thread for this title yet that I saw... So I figured "what the hey!?" lets toss one out there....
In this world is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcedental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? Perhaps Man has no control even over his own will…

My first thought: wait, they made a Dark/Demon's Souls version of this?

This game looks vaguely interesting. I don't have an issue with Compile Heart, so I'll keep an eye on this.

Didn't know about this, looks cute.

My thoughts exactly.

Watch this and be horrified.

I thought I had a high tolerance for that kind of stuff but even I'm disgusted.

"You'll need to equip soap and shampoo, which you gather in battle and during exploration.

In the bath, you'll need to massage the girls with the soap and shampoo. If you bathe the girls good, you'll see some positive effects in battle. Tip: combine various soaps and shampoos for different effects."


Have to admit that at least as a concept, this is a great idea. The game looks that it'll have a ton of grinding though (and it depends on the battle system if that's good or not bad news).

That sounds like the Ar Tonelico Dualithnode crystal thing taken to a rather offputting level.

I'm wishing it WERE some insane community Demon's Souls thing now. :(

LoL- I totally thought the same thing.... What is it with the japanese and bathing? It seems there is always a bath scene in everything.... if not a bath-house completely featured in some respect.... Speaking of bath houses, Niea Under 7 wins the "best of the bath-house" award by me... I really adored the cute little Niea so skillfully illustrated by Abe... I actually have a Yoshitoshi Abe sleave in the works on my left arm to be hopefully completed soon with a Niea piece....

Anyhow.... back on topic.... chance of localization? Anybody??

We'd have a better chance of america approving a nationwide shutdown of mcdonald's.

TASTY!

Only reason there's a shadow of a chance is because companies like NISA and, to a lesser degree, Aksys exist. Otherwise, none whatsoever.

Well, I initially thought chances of localization were pretty good.  NISA has a history of localizing Compile Heart titles, after all.  And it's not like this is a PSP game.  You would think they would want to get every PS3 game they could.

Then I saw that bath trailer.  I honestly don't know if that would fly here.  It looks worse than AT3...

LoL- I totally thought the same thing.... What is it with the japanese and bathing? It seems there is always a bath scene in everything.... if not a bath-house completely featured in some respect....

There are actually legit reasons for that.  Bathing is a big thing in Japanese culture.  And frankly, they're on to something.  I don't know if you've ever been to Japan, but if you do go make sure to check out an onsen.  They are friggin nice...

And bathing with other people (of the same gender) is much more normal in Japan than in the west.  It's not generally considered a big deal.  And yeah, shared baths do exist, but they're very much the exception rather than the rule.  Even then they would typically have separate sections for changing and washing (yes, you're supposed to wash yourself before you get in the bath...it's a thing) and it's only the big bath part that's shared, in which case most people would wrap themselves in a towel or something while they're using it.

What a bummer... being on this forum has really made me want to just break-down and learn the language.... I mean screw it.... If I start now, in a year or two there will be nothing I can't play!... Has anyone here ever tried it?

Er...I've been studying Japanese on and off for like 10 years and there's still stuff I can't play.  Mind you I haven't exactly been doing it full-time, but there's a lot to learn.

That said, I've really only been using my Japanese skills to play import games for the last couple of years, and I think I have improved a lot in that time.  Games can be really good practice tools.  Look for games that have both text and voice and let you advance through the dialogue at your own pace.  (i.e., visual novel-ish games, rather than modern, more cinematic cut scenes)  Heck, some visual novels have a history function that even let's you replay the audio for past lines, though that's rare in any other genre.

But still, you're going to need some sort of foundation of basic skills before you should even think about playing import games.  Looking up words you don't know is one thing, but you should at least know basic grammar and sentence structure.  Learning kanji is a seemingly endless process, but if you don't even know hiragana and katakana then you should probably forget it.
