A Look At Lux Pain’s Localization (Update)

This article is over 15 years old and may contain outdated information

We had our eye on Ignition since we knew they were going to publish Lux Pain. Today they officially announced the parasite searching adventure will come to North America in March 2009. Atlus, Xseed, and NIS all have a good reputation of publishing distinctly Japanese games and sticking to the source material. But, how will Ignition handle a game like this? Will Lux Pain be set in Podunk Metropolis with Alec as the main character?

Take a sigh of relief, Ignition isn’t going do anything erratic with Lux Pain. The main character is still called Atsuki and the setting is Kisaragi City. It looks like the North American version of Lux Pain is going to be a direct translation. If you’ve been waiting to play Lux Pain, but blocked by the language barrier this is good news. And this might be good news in the future too since Ignition is handling Blue Dragon Plus and is the most likely company to pick up Kimi no Yuusha, SNK’s bite sized RPG.


Update: I spoke with Ignition Entertainment and asked about the voiceovers after Chris brought the topic up. They’re going to be in English.
