Square-Enix trolling in Theatrhythm...

They have an FF Type 0 song up for download. Yet they won't localize the game.

Doesn't make much sense to put the song up for DLC, IMO.

Konami won't localize Beatmania anymore after the PS2 Beatmania US flopped a few years back. They still put Beatmania songs in DDR because fans of both series like those songs. Its not trolling, its acknowledging the existence of something your fanbase enjoys even though you don't find it profitable to localize what it comes from.

There is a copyright fight over specific song in FF Type 0 that is preventing Type 0 from being localized.
I don't think the Type 0 DLC is that song in questioin; hence why it is available as DLC.

EDIT: What the hell went wrong with my grammar? lol

In the case of Threatrhythm I'd say it's trolling. It's a high-end handheld videogame of a big name franchise that would've made profit for sure. Aside from that, it's a game a ton of original FF fans that hate FFXIII would buy.

It's not exactly hard to replace 1 song, you know. Companies have changed whole game soundtracks before to appeal to a different audience or because of licensing issues.

It's not that simple. The song in question is sung in-game by the main character and has ties to the plot; meaning SE can't just pick a new song. Although, you can rip SE for being idiots and not thinking this through.

Doesn't seem like any more trolling than Fire Emblem and Mother 3 characters in Smash Bros.

This is why Square Enix sucks.

really? not releasing their **** outside of Japan is why they suck? not the fact that everything they've ever produced is complete and utter **** to begin with?
