Why is the Vita getting screwed out of ALREADY trasnslated games from Japan?

#1Garfield64Posted 1/21/2013 9:52:21 PM
Seriously? What gives...

So One Piece Pirate Warriors 2, will come translated to USA. But not on the Vita? For what purpose? Can't afford to pay someone $20 to change the text over for the Vita version that they already translated for the PS3 version?

Seriously what the heck. Would it really kill them? I wish Sony would give the Japanese companies some incentive to bring their games to USA.

You'd think the Vita utterly and completely bombing and failing in Japan would be enough incentive to have your game world wide.

Vita's sow low on support right now it cant even get shovelware. Why would it get a decent game when it can't even secure Imagine Fetuzez?

Please excuse my troll behavior, as I am currently in my "Crash/Spyro depraved" state. Thank you for your understanding.

Its more than just paying someone to translate the games. There are licensing and publishing issues that would need to be sorted out. Plus most Japanese games that are have not been released over in the USA are niche titles with smaller fan bases. Game companies will have to decide if it is worth releasing their niche titles on a small install base of vita owners. Vita can barely sell 100k copies of those games in Japan, what makes you think they will even reach half that number in Japan?

Where did you see that TC?
I literally was just watching a video of this game about 10 minutes ago and thought to myself "What the hell is this? It looks pretty cool! I'll buy it when it comes out here.".

Well bummer. I would have bought this for the Vita, but there's no way I'll buy it for PS3. To bad because it looks really interesting.

One Piece isn't that popular in the U.S. and the Vita isn't breaking record sales, so that is probably the main reason that title isn't getting localized. Though I would probably pick it up if it did.

Makes me sad because I loved Dynasty Warriors on the Vita =(

Would also love to get other people liking One Piece.

This. (Except for some of the forced touch parts). I'm not huge on One Piece, I don't hate it or anything, it's just the last time I was in Japan, I had a choice between reading all the Shaman King or reading all the One Piece, and I chose Shaman King at the time.

Although for Warriors games, I am really really hoping for a port of Warriors Orochi 3.
