Elminage Gothic Remix (3DS)

It seems like after botching up the release of Elminage: Original, UFO Interactive has been silent on bringing more Elminage games to west. I think these are definitely the better gridders out there and deserve to picked up by somebody. How about it, NISA? There's one for 3DS.

It's a shame, but unless UFO decides to do it, I don't think anyone else will.

I wasn't too pleased with UFO's localization... :?

Seemed like a decent enough game, but I couldn't muster the interest to get very far... :?

It was alright after the patch. It's not like the story is usually the strongest suit in a DRPG.

Has UFO said anything about Elminage, post patch and release? Do we know if they were pleased with the sales?

Nothing, even after I posted several times on their Facebook page and sent emails

I've been pestering them too, but no reply. I'm guessing Elminage: Original didn't sell well and they decided against continuing. The reviews really put it down for the localization (or pretty much for the lack of it) which resulted in a poor Metacritic score, which I'm guessing killed it.

I've already asked if Vic of Gaijinworks were interested, and he said he would be if his plate weren't already so full.

I think this would be an easy series to pick up for NISA. From what I've heard, one of the difficulties in bringing over Japanese stuff is that alot of Japanese game companies are simply not interested in the western markets. Starfish obviously is.

Thing is, how UFO handled the series left a bad reputation. If a company like XSEED had a lot of issues bringing an amazing franchise like Legend of Heroes because of how Namco dealt with it in the past, I can't imagine a bigger company like NISA giving a damn about a smaller game mishandled by an even smaller company like UFO. It's just not happening, unfortunately.

Yep. First impressions are very important and UFO failed me :cry:

Actually, I don't think I'd ever heard about UFO before (and after :? ) Elminage's release for PSP :?

They've done quite a few niche games, I don't know how they're still standing.
