And now for something a little different.
Firstly, it's important to know that the team behind this strangely named game loves SRPGs, so that gives you an idea of what to expect from Fruitbat Factory's first console project, Eiyuu Senki: The World Conquest .
As revealed over at the PlayStation Blog , the game lands on PlayStation 3 on November 24, and it took the developers almost two years to localize the title for English-speaking audiences.
They kept the original Japanese audio and as the game boasts over 40 famous voice actresses, they didn't want to ditch them. Therefore, it took some work to make this happen and they talk about the challenge in detail:
We would have to create a way to add subtitles for all the character commentary into the game, despite its sheer volume and the fact that there was neither a system in place to display it, nor even proper text data for the voices to translate from. We had received the original recording data for the voices, but its structure was such that it could only be used as a reference rather than translated from."
So now it's coming and for those who love a slew of stats and pretty anime art, this one is for you. If you're not a big Japanese fan…well, this probably won't change your mind.
