Nintendo Is Localizing Etrian Odyssey Untold: Millennium Girl Into Korean

By Spencer . January 19, 2014 . 3:30pm

imageNintendo is helping Index publish Etrian Odyssey Untold: Millennium Girl in Korea. This version will be localized in Korean (surprisingly, not all Korean region games are localized) and is slated for release on February 27. Nintendo of Korea also handled publishing duties for Shin Megami Tensei IV.

 

Nintendo of Korea picked up Lego: Legends of Chima too for Nintendo 3DS and will release the game on January 23. Interestingly, Nintendo of Korea did not pick up Bravely Default. The 3DS RPG will be released as an eShop download, but it’s the English version. While this has multiple languages, Korean is not one of them.

    Localize Inazuma Eleven 1-2-3 and Inazuma Eleven GO! series for 3DS to USA!!!

  • ShinTekk

    It’s good that Nintendo is localizing this to Korea. There’s not that many games localized to Korea in the Korean language so I hope 3DS owners there get more drawn towards buying this fun game.

    What about SMT IV in Europe?

  • Crevox

    What is the picture supposed to be from the front page?

    I got excited there for a second then read Korea. Ah well. I’m going to stop complaining about Atlus localising their games in Europe and Australia for 2 reasons. I tend to ignore things that piss me off to a certain extent, but also because the mods here don’t want the complaints. I’ll just say one more thing. I can’t wait 2 more years, I want EOU:MG now!

      Ok, maybe i will sound like a jerk, but i doubt Nintendo have much interest in localising games in Europe when they didn’t sell the amount of 3DS they wanted there. I know you guys are angry and as a customer you deserve the best, i really hope you guys can play the same games that the guys in America or Japan, but it’s difficult.

      • http://people.ign.com/rob1610 rob1610

        Yeah, I know. NIS America will handle the localisation for Europe and Australia and they’ve had/are having difficulties. There have been articles about that. I actually don’t mind that Atlus are having problems with localisation and delaying the games. These things happen. The complaint is about how long it’s taking. Oh, and no, you didn’t sound like a jerk to me.

      • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

        No they sell more 3DS and more games when they put out more games.

        They Just localized Bravely default, cut em some slack SMT4 next year

  • Tylor Boreas Makimoto

    Ugh, Chima. Please, don’t remind me of the $35 I wasted on that … that thing.

  • fyi1191

    Nintendo of Korea, allow localization of MapleStory Girl’s Fate too. The west needs this badly.

  • Abysswalker90

    I’m glad they manage to take the time and effort to help single countries have an easier time to play games, while the entirety of Europe and it’s surroundings, which pretty much makes HALF THE WORLD is being almost utterly ignored.

    THANKS NINTENDO.

    • hng qtr

      Nintendo of Korea can’t do much about that.

    • Prithivi

      I won’t complain because it seems they are getting Bravely Default untranslated and digital only… But yeah, we Euros deserve a better treatment (but we should buy more games too!)

  • Tarkovsky

    Not too surprised. It is way easier to translate a game from Japanese to Korean than it is to English. Hopefully, with MonHun 4 getting localized as well, this increases the sales of the 3DS in S.Korea. Good for both Nintendo and S.Korea.

  • Kari

    Funny thing. they translated Final fantasy Zero for Korea but didn’t bother with the an English version…how crappy ..
