yeah, Bandai-Namco never made any sense. I remember North American Bandai's justification for removal of anime intro from NA release of Hero Tails was that "American Fans dont like anime". When their bread and butter comes from sales of anime and anime related paraphernalia in North America.
Those who come with a sword, will die by the sword.
^ This. Tales games usually sell well enough, but never "enough" for Bamco to call it a success.
On that note, I was curious and called around to a couple of GameStops. Every single one of them said they're out of the CE preorders now so it seems to be selling fairly well.
If they only have 3 to sell and they sell 3 that means they are out. However it doesn't mean it is selling well.
I'm sure English speaking regions will get another console Tales of. They won't get it fast enough for "the fans". And I say this every time but if "the fans" would set aside some time and learn Japanese they could play all of the games in the form they were intended to be played.
Instead of wasting 15 minutes per day on here spend it learning.
