It Would Be Pretty Neat If These Games Got Translated Into English

So that I could play them and read all the words.

Welcome to a list.

List items

  • Man do I love me some tiny robot.

  • Some Italian translator group is doing this one, I wish them all the best. It sounds crazy.

  • I heard this might actually be a thing if enough nerds sign a petition. Internet petitions have changed all sorts of things in the real world. No, really.

  • Destiny II is the one where Stahn gets [SPOILER] and you play as his kid hunting down the [SPOILER] and [SPOILER] them without [SPOILER] the natural [SPOILER], before there's still time.

  • The PS3 version, obviously. This one is already in English.

    [They did it! Vesperia Remastered for PS4/XB1/Steam - 2018.]

  • Oh hey, another one.

    [They did it! Hearts R for Vita - 2014.]

  • W-wait a minute..

  • Yeah, because I'd understand all the in-jokes if they were in English. It took me ten goddamn minutes to figure out that one shmup level in Bayonetta was riffing on Space Harrier, and they lifted the theme wholesale as a big hint.

  • You know they won't bring this out over here, despite selling a metric fuckbunch of Phoenix Wright and Layton games. "The Westerners don't understand the exotic appeal of crossover fanfiction." Read any 15 year old girl's LiveJournal, dipshits. (Disclaimer: I do not read the LiveJournals of 15 year old girls).

    [They did it! 3DS localization - 2014.]

  • A joke, a joke, A JOKE. Man, was Rosy Rupeeland bad.

I always wonder what sort of cool stuff is going on behind the language barrier. Not enough for me to learn Japanese, I guess, but I don't want to put translators out of work.  Yeah, that's it.

I probably have more than enough games that actually did get localized to worry too much about these. But still, I'm kind of sore about that third Chibi Robo. C'mon fan translators.

Tales of Graces F is officially coming to North America in 2012. That of course gives them plenty of time to decide to cancel it.

I should point out that I took Tales of Graces F off this list once I'd heard confirmation that it was destined for the chilly shores of my fair Albion as well. 
 
Darn Japanese companies ruining my righteous indignation by kindly acquiescing to the unreasonable demands of myself and other fans. The audacity of those scoundrels.

I would murder all the fools to get an English translation for Vesperia's PS3 version. Fucking Flynn! He's essentially the character that I always enjoy playing as in these games =( Well, more so because he's basically Kratos just without the magic abilities. I relished the chance to play as him that one time for like 10 minutes, with all his Beasts and Sonic Thrusts <3

Also, it appears you spoke too soon concerning Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright ;) Kinda funny how it was even released in Europe by a pretty significant margin before its US release!
