Cross Edge / X Edge looks like a licensing mess. It has Darkstalkers from Capcom, Reyvateils from Ar Tonelico which is now under the guise of Namco Bandai, various Gust characters from the Atelier series, and Etna from Nippon Ichi. Yikes. This is a bigger debacle than Chaos Wars, but somehow that got localized with hilariously awful voice acting. Apparently, Cross Edge is too. A trusted inside source tells me Cross Edge will see a US release by a company “we (i.e. Siliconera) know very well”.
Since there isn’t an official press release or statement to go along with this I’m going to throw this in the wild rumor bin for now. However, if you were thinking about importing Cross Edge when it comes out in Japan this month and concerned about the language barrier you might want to wait.
Don’t know who made the Cross Edge cut? Here’s a list of characters we know about so far.
