I know it's a little too soon, but sooner we get the appropriate support, bigger the chances of the game getting localized.

I would love it if you guys would bring this over. :mrgreen: An RPG with 3rd person shooter elements or vise versa sounds awesome.

Not really; there's is an anime for it, but it started out a song by the same name created by Supercell with a music video being illustrated by Huke. It was popular for awhile before getting released as an OVA.

Anyways, hearing that this is going to be released for the PSP broke my heart. :cry: Although the trailer actually makes the game look pretty interesting I'd still rather have it for the PS3 or even the 360.

I'll probably get it so I support it's localization here regardless of the chances it has.

Actually, huke started with the images, and just after some time that the video was created.

The origins of Black Rock Shooter date back to an original character illustration titled "Black Rock Shooter" by the artist Huke, who posted it on his blog and the online artist community Pixiv on December 26, 2007. Ryo of Supercell was inspired by the illustration and created the song "Black Rock Shooter" based on that character. Huke joined Supercell and provided the illustrations used in the music video of the song, which was later posed online on the Nico Nico Douga video sharing website on July 13, 2008, which as of August 2009 had over 2.2 million views. "Black Rock Shooter" features vocals from the Vocaloid singing synthesizer Hatsune Miku.

I wish it would be for the ps3 as well, but maybe with it being a psp game it will give us a better chance of getting it as companies usually bring niche games more to handhelds.

Exactly. I'm not crazy in love on being on the PSP, but it's better than being on a platform that some localization companies don't consider very much, like Wii and 360.

If there are any chances about this game getting localized, count me in for supporting this.

True, but the magical PS3 is region free. :mrgreen:

Well I agree this game looks awesome. So I hope NISA can bring the game out. Also I wonder if they do would NISA also pick up the anime as well? If they did that could also help sell the product.

If NISA closes the deal and localizes both OVA and game, I imagine the company getting really famous and also earning a lot of money.

Oh, and:

Dengeki asked Mikage about Imageepoch's plans for overseas releases for their titles after the conference. He flat out replies that Imageepoch has a contract with NIS America, and that NISA will be releasing their titles in the US and probably also Europe. So good news for everyone? Maybe?

Hell yeah, that's the best news I've heard in awhile! I sure do hope that BRS is one of them, but any news of rpgs getting localized is great!
