Sega’s first project with Tri-Ace, Resonance of Fate (aka End of Eternity in Japan), will have a Japanese voice option. However, the English voice track won’t be complete. (Thanks for the tip Pesmerga00!!)
Speaking with Videogamer.com, Jun Yoshino, Localization Producer at Sega, says, “We will have English American voices. Unfortunately, just to squeeze it in, because we wanted to keep the gap small, some things will be text. But we know that a lot of JRPG fans just play with the Japanese voice overs on with the subtitles anyway.”
Yoshino makes a point, but having a fully voiced English track would be nice option too since, you know, this is going to be released in the West.
Resonance of Fate is slated to come out in Japan in winter 2009. Sega will release the game in North America and Europe in early 2010. Would delaying Resonance of Fate until mid 2010 for a full English track be that bad?
