When asked in an interview whether or not Xseed would be interested in localizing Yuji Naka’s new game, ‘Rodea: The Sky Soldier’, Ken Berry, Director of Publishing at Xseed, answered the following:
Rodea still seems a way off and we want to see how it is received and how it progresses as a final game. We are definitely interested in pursuing those […] titles.
That certainly sounds reassuring to some degree. If the game does well enough in Japan it gets a translation! Check out the full interview in the source, since it gives you a nice insight into localisation processes, which has become a hot topic ever since ‘Project Rainfall’.
