"We at XSEED Games are pleased to be bringing it to you fully uncut and uncensored. Torture chambers, naughty midnight missions in the dark and all the brutal slaughtering you can handle await in this riveting and 100% historically accurate (shhhh!) sandbox-style samurai period drama."

Having played Hakuoki recently, I'm way more excited for this than I probably should be.

DD-only again.

I mostly pop in occasionally to give my two cents on certain controversial things, so if you disagree then send a PM, because I generally don't check for replies in threads in case I feel like replying and then things get heated/derailed.

I just read that.

Guess I'll import the Euro version. There's absolutely no reason for this.

XSeed can just fuck off.

It's more likely SCEA than XSEED.

Yes, how dare they localize a game in a way that's likely to generate a return on investment instead of a loss allowing them to continue doing business and localize games that might not have a very wide audience!

I guarantee it's SCEA.

Was WotS3 dubbed?

Not to my knowledge. Anyway DD-only is pretty smart with this series. Unless major changes have been made the WotS series I've been exposed to is kinda sluggish overall with weird mechanics and a plot that's generally all over the place with little indication where to go or what to do with a few exceptions for specific routes. I could never figure out enough of it to fully relax while playing it; so I can see how a title like this would only see returns on DD-only.

It is gonna hurt sales though, no two ways about it.

I feel bad for XS, but I'm not shallow enough to point blame at them when I know they're not at fault. (At least I doubt it.)

Games like Wizardry though, DD is perfect for games like that.
(Even if getting the disc release with both PSN games would be amazing.)

If I remember correctly, it was dual audio. I'd have to pop the game in and check.
If it were a handheld, I could see it being SCEA.
I can't understand why this would be a digital title.

Allow me to point you back at my Warriors Orochi 3 topic (the second link in particular); which was DD for PS3 only as well. The 'Warriors' series more (albeit by how much I can't say) popular than WotS; yet it too got the same treatment except for it's Xbox 360 counterpart. As has been mentioned it's probably something on Sony's end and I'm willing to bet they have the same excuse for doing it here that they did for WO3.

WOTS3 was localized and was brilliant, I was inspired to play this yesterday after watching the move Ip Man which is in no way related. Moving right along, jp Wots4 seems cheap now so i'll be getting that.
