Square-Enix

While I greatly support the battle to localize Digimon, Square's too stupid to realize that Dragon Quest would sell well in the West or atleast better than Bravely Default, which beat out most if not all of the AAA games last month.

SE says they're still fully committed towards 3DS. They see how much Bravely Default sold, what's the hold up with DQ? The install base obviously buys your games and likes RPG's.

Square Enix's localisation support dropped in the past couple of years because of financial issues. Bandai is just plain bad at localising. So Bandai.
Blah.

Six in one basket, half a dozen in another. Nintendo should not have to localize Square's games, and Namco should realize there's an audience for their stuff as well. Both Square and Namco do a terrible job at cultivating an audience over here what with high-priced ports (Chrono Trigger, Tales of the Abyss) and confusingly bizarre games that remain exclusive in Japan.

At least in a company like Capcom's case, their niche EX Troopers just flat-out bombed, which would make sense as to why they wouldn't bother bringing it out here.

SquareEnix fully translated Final Fantasy Type Zero... only not to localize it on PSP or port it to another console. Now it's already too late because everyone that wanted to play it will get the fan translation in August on PSP, other people don't care about it anymore.

SE, Nintendo has to localize their games, also Type Zero...

Namco yes, pulled something along those lines for Tales, but they're starting to change that, we had to spam their pages yes, but they actually listened.

SE...of course, let's localize Lighting Returns, that flopped in japan also, of course...
