|WII / NINTENDO DS||Europe|

Rising Star Games, Marvelous’ European arm, is doing what they do best which is localize games published by Marvelous for Europe. The niche puzzle/platformer Steal Princess will get an English release in Europe. Climax’s game gets off to a slow start with a long introduction and over a dozen tutorial levels. Hmm… I wonder if Rising Star will dub all of the Japanese voices. Steal Princess has a surprising amount of voice overs. The strength of Steal Princess is really its built in level editor and level swapping.
Also coming out sometime in the distant future is Valhalla Knights: Elder Saga. North America hasn’t warmed up to the Valhalla Knights series, but the Wii version is more like a loot collecting action RPG than a slow paced dungeon crawler. Xseed hasn’t announced either of these games at this time. However, someone will pick these up and release them in North America since they are being localized into English.
