Many Mugen Souls fans have lost hope in ever seeing the sequel come to the west and used to think that we would never see how much the sequel has improved but our prayers have been answered last month.
The news was quite shocking to all who have lost hope. Now lovers of the original game can rejoice and build a stronger Mugen Souls fanbase in the west, it shows that they really care about the gamers who "enjoyed" the series.
From what I read about !dea Factory international, the CEO thanked Aksys and Ghostlight but it was NIS America who had the biggest impact by releasing Neptunia and Mugen Souls to the west. The release of two very odd games that other companies from Idea Factory that nobody would want to publish: Neptunia PP and Mugen Souls Z, show how close NISA and IFI really are. The average person might think the release those two games are crazy but I think that's risky and courageous.
Aksys have their fans waiting for Agarest War Marriage but with the !dea factory Intentional forums being active about it, I think this game has a high chance of coming. On the other hand, NISA doesn't have the fans of their Compile Heart franchises waiting. Every single Neptunia and Mugen Souls has been release and is probably going to be released to the west along side their own games from their parent company.
The quality of the localization of Neptunia V might not be the greatest (I honestly have no problems) but Netunia fans didn't have worry about it not getting a western release nor wait very long. It's okay if you guys aren't satisfied with it but for me, I'd rather get anything than nothing. This motivational quote only applies to me and I'm not telling anybody else to believe this but I believe this because I want to be happy.
They could've made it easy for themselves and not localize this game at all and not have to deal with all of this troubles that accompanies it. Negative thoughts bout about Mugen Souls Z makes me more grateful. The game is coming out 100% which was one of my goals in life and fans no longer have to worry like they used to. NISA may not get much money from this, but they've gained a large amount of an intangible currency called trust, we almost lost hope.
We would have never seen a game like this come to the west but this was the company who had the guts to take a game nobody would even look at. The worst kind of failure is not trying at all but they successfully brought Mugen Souls and Mugen Souls Z over.
Thank you for announcing a Japanese game that I enjoyed. It must be a tough decision with pressures of bad sales in Japan, criticism of the original game and going against western political gaming taboos.
