JAST USA Won’t Be Localizing Starry Sky Due To High Licensing Costs

JAST USA will probably not be localizing the Starry Sky series of otome games, company founder Peter Payne revealed in an interview with Technology Tell (thanks, ANN).


JAST USA were initially looking into the possibility of bringing the Starry Sky games over to western territories, but Payne stated: “We have talked with companies about Starry Sky since we know there are many fans who would love to have this game released for English-speaking fans to enjoy. Sadly we did not get a good response from the companies in question.”


Payne went on to explain that the problem with the game is its “all-star cast” featuring famous voice-actors, whose inclusion would require a significant licensing fee, adding that he felt a release without the Japanese voice-overs would displease fans.
