Interesting. Who do you guys think will be the new publisher? NISA? Atlus?

Square Enix Europe has been picking up other companies' games left and right, they even took Persona 4, though MegaTen games usually go to Koei or Ghostlight. They got Odin Sphere as well. Whatever happens, I wouldn't be surprised if Square Enix got the European license.

US/Canada? Probably Atlus, maybe Square Enix or Nintendo.

I'm hoping for Atlus, I figure they'd give it the treatment it deserves.

If that were the case then all the more reason to want them to go away.

Personally, I imagine a much larger company probably got the rights for Xseed to lose them. Someone like Ubisoft could easily butt out the smaller localization-only company.

I see that Xseed partnership lasted long.  Anyway, I have to agree that someone came along who offered more money, which makes sense when games such as Avalon Code make a somewhat big splash.

I have to say, that was a bit unexpected for me as the new publisher.

As long as I get to play it, which I can now once again, I'm happy.

they should be doing what is essentially a sequel to it, as well.

Using the same graphics engine != sequel.  The games don't play anything alike, and in fact most of the previews I've seen for Muramasa say it's about as far from an RPG as you can get.


And Ignition is a publisher, they publish games regardless of where they came from.  Most of their games have come from Japan, IIRC, but that doesn't mean they can't publish a US game.

I'm mostly scared about this because of the terrible job they did porting Lux-Pain.  Their work on the manual for Metal Slug 7 doesn't have me in high hopes either.

Technically that was MMV's fault, or so I've heard. They basically threw the game pre-translated at Ignition and only left them publishing and the dubbing to deal with. It sounds like they fully intend to improve too, which is more than I can say for NISA which seems to just like to dress up their fuck ups.

ORLY?  Well, then my interest has piqued back up a little bit.  Here's hoping they stick to that promise; NISA made a similar one early in their career too.
