    Unless Koei Tecmo starts to properly localize their games again, i.e. English dub, I will not buy another game from them.

      Unless people start buying said games that’s not going to happen, and it appears declining Atelier sales is going to get it removed from even that series.

        I’ve been buying their games. I have all of Atelier series on PS3 and PS4, as well as some other RPG they released such as Nights of Azure and Blue Reflections, on release day, even though those were not dubbed, much to my dismay. But the decision to not dub Atelier Lydie and Suelle was the last straw, especially when the rest of the series were dubbed.

    I’m torn on this one. The last few have gone downhill such that I didn’t even buy the release earlier this year. However a city building + alchemy game sounds awesome. Hmm, I’ll watch this one closely
