Please bring Sophie to the PS3!

Postby Trscroggs » Mon Jul 06, 2015 8:52 am

I noticed that Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book is coming out in Japan later this year. I just going to assume that this game will be translated, simply because I can't seem to contemplate it not coming here.

My hope, however, is that NIS America won't duplicate another RPG company and release the game only on the most recent platforms. Please NIS America have some love for your gamers with outdated hardware and release Atelier Sophie: The Alchemist of the Mysterious Book on the PS3 as well!

NISA can't do any development work themselves, that's up to the original developers. It's always been this way.
Regardless, they're not involved in localising Atelier games anymore since TK now own Gust, they do it themselves.

As to the first, it does have a PS3 version already. But when SquareEnix decided to brin the new Star Ocean to the US, they decided to do it only on the PS4, despite the fact that it also had a PS3 version.

As to the second...I did not know that. Thank you.

Oh, I wasn't aware, as you didn't mention that.
Secondly, that's just really stupid, shouldn't take much more to just put the localised script into the previous version too...
I know the PS4 is the one with the ridiculously huge market share, but that's just silly.

I was also hoping for a PS3 version too, but it doesn't seem likely. I wasn't planning on buying a PS4 til next year and will prob be playing Persona 5 til then anyway, so I will have to wait for Sophie.

Actually the localization work up to Shallie at least, was done by a company named Acttil.

They're still not in charge of it. Which is the main thing.
