Even though Marvelous AQL filed a trademark for Bakumatsu Rock, a rhythm game meets visual novel set during Japan’s Bakumatsu period, the PSP game will not be released in North America.
“If Marvelous AQL registered it, that probably has to do with the anime. We don’t have any plans to do that title,” said Xseed’s Executive Vice President Ken Berry to Siliconera. “Xseed is not bringing over Bakumatsu Rock. It’s like a visual novel with way too many Japanese characters to translate.”
“We actually have another PSP title that we haven’t announced yet…” Berry said with a laugh. This game isn’t The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC which was previously announced and still in development.
