I want Tokyo Ghoul Jail to get an English version

To be blunt... what one person wants is not really of concern to companies. =D

 

But I'll explain this a bit more because the above sentence sounds way too blunt =D 

No, no chance. By now, Tokyo Ghoul may be one of series that still holds its ground when it comes to popularity in the west. But... it doesn't have anime to boost popularity even more. It's holding its ground, but that's all. Gone are those times when it was everywhere with only Eotenas being on the same level.

sqrt(A), and we do not talk about sqrt(A), is already 2 years old, for most people, ancient history. 

So, even if they were to bring it, it wouldn't be hyped like for example Eotenas, Nanatsu no Taizai or Little Witch Academia all of which had anime adaptation in recent years.

 

In other words, if Bamco were to localize it, they would have done it when TG was on peak of both popularity and exposure. Which brings us to the actual release of the game. That was really bad for possible localization. Since the game came in October, the localized version would be at best year and half after the last Tokyo Ghoul related thing happened. 

Which is why they most likely scrapped the localization idea at the beginning. 

 

And this doesn't even take licensing into consideration. 

 

tl;dr: Import.

Oh Okay that does make sense. I will most likely import it. It's a shame that no one has made an English patch for it.

You can't make an English patch for a Vita game, lol =D

It's not PC =D

 

(Not considering henkaku)

I'd really like that Owari no Seraph game to get translated but it's just a dream. I'm hoping one day I'll find the JPN version cheap & pick it up.

 

Tokyo Ghoul Jail is getting a welcome price edition this month. 2500 Yen at amiami. Pretty nice price.

What is cheap for you? 

I bought it for ~20€ on Nin-Nin.

That would be around 40-50 AUD after shipping which is what I'd consider a reasonable price. NinNin takes around a month or more to get games to me but that's not a dealbreaker, I might have to poke around the site a bit more to see if I can pick that up with a few more titles from my want list, thanks for the heads up :)

First 10 minutes of the game looks like a cinematic game like Steins;Gate 0.. 

 

Huge fan of the anime/manga tho, but i'd love to see a better Tokyo Ghoul game made, but before that they need to redo the anime & include everything they cut out from the manga. 24 episodes.. i did that in a day & a half ):

Cinematic game...? Like... VN?

Well, obviously, it's a JRPG, the start is going to be VN =D

But it's more recent. That's the biggest difference.

Just an off-topic question. How trust-worthy is this site? I really want that Taiko Drum Master patch lol.
