The game will be available on PS3 and Vita, which allows both systems to play Japanese titles region free.
This could be related to Virtua Fighter 20th Anniversary and the recent crossovers.
Damn right, Japanese only yet again, what does Sega West have going for it? Can’t remember the last time they had a good strong solid line up, aside from the typical Aliens licence, and PC sims like Total War and Football Manager, it’s been years now.
I’ll tell you what’s this game up against Sega West going for it: This game being yer typical anime crossover, and they’re all screwed by the lawyers; just ask Super Robot Wars or Jump Ultimate Stars.
Anime crossover video games are born legally tangled in the West. Different competing Western licensees picking up the source anime of such games are what stoke the fire. Extinguishes even the tiniest glimmer of legal settling and rival men in suits cooperating. Imagine Capcom’s struggles negotiating a bunch of old-school, DEAD Western anime licenses from different companies for Tatsunoko vs. Capcom and then don’t bother because you’re looking at series much more relevant in 2014 right now. This is the tragedy of the anticommons refined as engineering.
Yes but this game isn’t an anime crossover…most of the characters in this game are from light novel series..but the rights issue is still the same because they would have to sign some international license to all the creators whose characters feature in this game as well as the main publisher Dengenki. And since they are not well known in the west they see it as no point with the extra costs..even if it has sega characters in it…most of those characters are only known to sega fans..it wouldn’t be enough to get good sales..as well as the fact that the higher ups have no clue how to market this type of game..let alone their own games outside of Sonic and Alien. Look what happened with BINARY DOMAIN.
