Man, they really stepped up in their graphics department. Welp, better put aside some money for DLC.

I like the new training camp and the Live for You rhythm performance system, but why NB, why didn't you expand your roster. I would've loved to have Million Live and Cinderella Girls idols in. Hopefully, they can be available as DLC and none of that rivals only crap.

If the game is released like much of the other console releases, this will get its release and within about a year the follow up game using the same engine and less story focused version will come out, the benefit of the latter is they can potentially put more characters in.

It's the localization nightmare of the 21st century, give up, the console games aren't coming here ever. At least it's not back on the Xbox where it would sell abysmally in this day in age.

Agreed, don't even care if it would be digital only.

Love Live made it here and is doing pretty well, one can keep praying.

Bringing it to the west is the dream and will only be a dream. [email protected] is a localization nightmare (with translation as well as licensing songs) and to be honest, would barely sell in the US. And [email protected] sells through DLC and if they don't move, then what's the point? Also, the only exposure US has to [email protected] is the mobile music game and I doubt those sold at all. I see everyone playing the Love Live! games more than that (I've yet to see one). And yes, Love Live! is free, which makes it even easier to market.

Sorry to be Debbie Downer but that's just thinking from a realistic point. [/i]

Not asking for localization in the West but I wish it get English treatment like other BandaiNamco's games, PSVita Gundam Extreme VS Force gets English release but it is for Asia region(initially, as they later also confirmed West localization). If the licensing is an issue, [email protected] can get English too but wont heading to West region. I can deal with this.

the Love Live IOS game is more along the lines of Project Diva than it is to the scale of a main [email protected] release, for those that are a little less aware most of the main [email protected] releases are multiple hours of recorded dialogue, localizing it is like taking the stakes that it will sell along the lines of Final Fantasy or Xenoblade Chronicles without the known fanbase to back it up.

I know myself and many others would certainly buy [email protected] day one if it were released in English, but realistically it isn't going to happen as it simply isn't worth the resource dump to have a high production game that sells to a niche market.

A game that "might" work in the west however would be the [email protected] IOS games as they are significantly smaller productions.

Why do people keep assuming that [email protected] would need a full localization? Lots of modern releases don't have localized voices, and in fact part of the selling point of this game is the original voices. Just change the text to be readable by English readers.

@FenixFiesta: The [email protected] iOS games did make it over here. I think most people scoffed at the price point.

That one was the PSP port to IOS, I was thinking more along the line the free to play game Cinderella Girls game.

I would at least like SideM and Cinderella Girls in English. That shouldn't be too hard at all.

SideM wouldn't have much of an issue except that it caters to a very specific audience and thus may not even do well at all. Cinderella Girls has a chance of selling but it has a lot of really young idols in it often in midriff and a few skimpier outfits (like the really angelic sea princess outfit Kozue wears in the latest White Tail gaccha), that may rub those who don't like lolis or anime the wrong way.

If they would hire me, I'd translate Imas 2 and Deresute in a second.
