Though it likely won’t come as a surprise to many, doubt has been cast on the prospect of Project X Zone getting a release in Western territories.
Even with its roster of popular characters from SEGA/Namco/Capcom franchises, the 3DS crossover title has “niche Japanese game” written all over it, and like clockwork, with that comes the typical struggle for an international release.
After being flooded with angry Twitter responses following comments that a Western release seemed unlikely, Katsuhiro Harada has tweeted to assure fans that he has, if nothing else, been pushing for the game’s localization.
While not the most promising sign, it’s at least nice to hear that someone from within Namco Japan is listening to the voices of Western fans. Project X Zone will see release in Japan on October 11th.
