20 Years, 20(ish) Still-Wanted Localizations ~ An RPGFan 20th Anniversary Feature

Localization is a tough gig. It's a lot of work to bring games out in another language, especially when some RPGs eclipse the word count of War and friggin' Peace.

As a result, it's no surprise that games would routinely be passed up for localization, given the size of the industry 5, 10, or 20 years ago. But in today's age of remasters and remakes, is it ever truly too late to bring a title to new audiences?

In this month's RPGFan 20th Anniversary feature, we look at 20(ish) games that released in Japan during our 20 years on the internet, and why we still want to see them here. Could it happen? Who knows, but that doesn't stop us from dreaming.
