they plan on discussing a PS3/360 release too.
PS3 version please, the Xbox 360 is regional locked by default, and even though the publisher can select to make their games to be regional free, the majority don't do it for some odd reason!

Any way, teaming up with NISA/Aksys and Ghostlight might be a good idea, they have a lot of experience with localization and marketing on the console. They should be able to help a lot in pushing the title farther then JAST alone can. Plus 5pb have some history with NISA/Ghostlight, so they might be more willing to talk if NISA is in the picture.

And give us a limited edition that come with few goods!

reading his blog entry, i think aeru's attitude is disgustingly self-righteous and selfish in the worst possible way, and i'm not even a jast supporter

[another day and another idiotic rant from stranger]

So Little Busters for the PC have been fan translated and released. And key is going to release a PS Vita edition of the title next month (don't know who their publisher is).

One of the things I wondered about in the past is: how successful would an English translation DLC -to a console Japanese VN- be? With PS Vita being regional free, LB for the PS Vita is going to be released next month and the fan translation of the all-ages PC version have been completed. Would this be a good chance to test if western punter would be interested importing a console VN and use the English DLC with it?

While there would be some differences between the PC and PS Vita version of the VN, the lion's share of the text should be identical.

[/another day and another idiotic rant from stranger]

P.S. did anyone actually read the above?.... errrrr... never mind.

Good question. I am not sure if you are proposing an official English version of Little Busters. If you are, then that could be rather difficult. Publishers might have a lot of trouble paying the licensing costs, much less making money from selling it.

I don't know if fan translators could take their existing text, and make it work on a Vita version of Little Busters. There might be technical issues.

actually, after thinking about it, only the developer or publisher can make a DLC for a console release, no one else can make it, sign it and uploaded it to PSN.

So unless key (or their publisher) decide to spending some money to polish and port the fan translation to the PS Vita, it is not going to happen.... but it was worth the thought.

Edit: If it does work out though, I was hoping that the first DLC would be free of charge, just to see if people will want to import and make use of it. In this case, the English DLC will be one of their selling points.

The forum discussion also has some interesting comments:

*ADV claims ARMS overpaid for these licences (on purpose)
*ADV claims they lost control of the company to these executives from Sojitz
*ADV claims Sojitz failed to pay millions of dollars to the Japanese licensers

Might want to add this to the news article, if you find it relevant.

My exact post:

Quote:
ADV had at least 3 Sojitz employees working in their office. One was appointed to Chief Strategic Officer of ADV ( Mizushima), Hada assumed the role of CFO, and Ueda assumed the role of business analyst for ADV. ADV claimed "By virtue of the actions of these Defendants, as employees of Sojitz, Sojitz effectively assumed control of ADV, including its day to day operations...Sojitz/JCI/ARM employees analyzed, solicited and substantially directed acquisition of ARM Titles from within ADV while at the same time, under the guise of ARM. Sojitz/JCI/ARM employees approved those acquisitions and the purchase prices of each. Higher purchase prices and a higher ARM balance necessarily increased facility servicing fees ARM charged to ADV and, by extension, the potential profit of ARM under the Agreement and leverage of Sojitz/JCI/ARM over ADV. Despite Sojitz/JCI/ARM 's declaration of ADV's default of the Agreement, Sojitz/JCI/ARM has failed to pay millions of dollars of outstanding balance they agreed to pay to content owners under many of the license agreements as inducement for those content owners entering into agreements with ARM and ADV."

It also says
*Sojitz tried to make a deal with another company when they didn't get paid, they took the lead, and would not let ADV have any say.
*Sojitz made ADV sign off on term-sheets, while stating Sojitz had control over any of these deals being made
*Sojitz made threats saying it would withdraw it's support for ADV if ADV did not agree to the deals Sojitz wanted.
*At the same time ADV was negotiating loan payments with a bank
*The deals "went away and were not consummated"
*ADV could not make the payments to the bank, notified Sojitz of this

(My Opinion on this) ADV is claiming Sojitz got into this all just to make a quick profit. They did everything they could, including overpaying for titles in order to squeeze every penny they could out of ADV. By overpaying and licensing a lot they were able to charge ADV fees, in addition to geting a large library of shows to then sell.
Let's blame fansubs again.

I saw it earlier but, someone on /A/ is working on Baldr Sky
Apparently he averages at 4000 lines a week and is currently in chapter 3 of one of the routes.
He's released a few picture but 4chan's down at the moment so I'll grab them after.

H-images from Dramatical Murder have finally been released, confirming that it does actually have sex (the game has always been rated 18+ but some people had begun to wonder if it was rated 18+ for reasons other then sex).

Fuji, please take your fuwaness to a special fuwa thread or something. Fuwa drama doesn't count as serious VN news.
