Tekken producer proposes localization.

Namco Bandai has shared the opening movie for Project X Zone.

The upcoming 3DS strategy RPG brings together characters from Namco Bandai, Sega, and Capcom franchises in an all-out, dream crossover. It’s set to launch on October 11 in Japan.

Watch the opening below.

In other news, Katsuhiro Harada, director of the Tekken franchise, has said he’s proposed the localization of Project X Zone.

“Not decided yet, but it will be realized if I continue proposing,” he said.

Hope for the best!

    Whoa, they’re actually considering a localization for this one????

    That would be EPIC! I’d imagine it’d be a pain in the ass to actually do so, licensing all the characters and voices, translating everything and re-recording the voices in english (assuming they wouldn’t leave the original VO only in the game). A friend of mine made me aware of all these variables that could definitely make it hard for this game to ever be released in the west, we actually made a bet; I claimed we’d get it eventually.

    So I hope this does come out in the west, not only coz I really want to play this, but also because I can’t loose this bet :D

      Licensing shouldn’t be that hard considering all the characters belong to the respective companies in the west (Capcom US, Bandai Namco US, Sega US I assume). Far easier than Super Robot Wars thats for sure. I gotta agree bout the voices though. 

      Hopefully they just translate it and leave the voices intact like Atlus did with SRW Endless Frontier (Haken and Kaguya Nanbu’s game) so that we get the game faster and have awesome voices.

      • FaithlessMr

         As much as I’d like to believe they’d leave the game with their original VOs, and translate the text only, I just don’t seem that happening. Atlus does work with a niche userbase so they know their userbase will take their games no matter what, but I believe NB, as the official publisher for this game, would want to expand it’s target audience to the max, and by using the original japanese VA, they’d perhaps consider this game “too japanese” (let it be known that I don’t think any game is ever “too japanese”, I think this designation can be a little racist at times, since no one ever brings up a western game and claims it’s “too american” or “too european”.

        But I digress :3 I just hope we get to play this eventually!

        • Kobracon

          Yeah thats why I said ‘Hopefully’. Even if they do though, I hope they leave the original voices in as an option. There are gonna be a TON of actors needed and I doubt they’ll spring cash for the best for all of them

    Don’t break my heart man…

    I don’t know how many times I can say this, but not only does this look like a stellar gem past the normal mixmatch, but damn I wish Atlus & SNKP uni’s were in this is.

    *SIGH*
