Want Project X Zone in the US/Europe? Ask Namco Bandai!
Because Capcom have now been quoted as saying that they have no control over whether the game gets published or localised, they just contributed some characters and other stuff to it.
Here’s what Capcom said when asked about the game and an international release:
Just to clarify, that’s not us
From Capcom’s Christian Svennson
We’ve provided some characters via a licensing agreement. I believe it’s Namco Bandai that’s doing the publishing. So if there’s any questions about whether it’s going to be localized, or what the plan is, they have to be directed to Namco Bandai, not us. I’m sorry, we have no visibility or even say in whether that happens or not.
Another quote by a different staff member at Capcom (known as Viewtful Vaughn), was this:
That’s Namco Bandai’s decision. The only involvement Capcom has is that their characters are in the game.
Basically, don’t ask them about it, they have control over whether the game is released outside Japan or not nor anything else in regards to it being published.
You’ll be happy to know however that quite a few people have come forward in support of this game, and that a Project X Localisation request page is already up on Facebook at the following address:
If you want Project X Zone to be released worldwide (and there’s no reason it shouldn’t be), sign the petitions and bug Namco Bandai about it.
