    Default Any news on a domestic release for Namco x Capcom?

    Because I haven't heard anything; and I'm probably going to import it and try to play through that version.

    This May 26th, it'll have been a year since the Japanese release.

    Hurry the hell up, guys...if this one doesn't make it out here that'd be a damned shame.

    yeah it is, and I highly doubt we'll ever see it stateside... a shame really.

    May as well put your hopes towards something that has a hint of a chance of being released here, Mother 3.

    I hear you need to know a sufficient amount of Japanese to enjoy the game.

    Yes you do, I've seen it in action. You can't even fumble your way through it if you have little knowledge of the language.

    I've played a bit of it and, knowing no Japanese at all, it seemed insanely hard to get through. Damn shame though, because I'd LOVE to have a playable version of that game.

    I bet Atlus or XSeed would bring it over if Namco and/or Capcom would let them. I'm not sure why they haven't themselves though, maybe they think some of the characters are too obscure over here.

    Still a shame, considering all the other crap that makes it over.

    Hah, just looked into this a few months ago. Seems they wont be bringing it over to the states because of poor sales in Japan.

    Shame really.

    I imported it, while its fun to play knowing no japanese will kill you. There are translation faqs on gamefaqs however they don't help 100%.

    I wouldn't spend more then $20 on it, as it wont be fun to play due to the japanese and your probably wont beat it.
