Translator Alexander O. Smith Joins Unsung Story Development Team


Despite the game not reaching its original stretch goals, PlayDek have managed to negotiate with well-known translators Alexander O. Smith and Joseph Reeder to work on Unsung Story, the publisher has announced.


O. Smith is known for his work with Square Enix, particularly his work on a number of Yasumi Matsuno’s games, including Vagrant Story and Final Fantasy XII. O. Smith also translated Crimson Shroud, which Matsuno developed for the Nintendo 3DS in collaboration with Level 5.


Meanwhile, Reeder has worked with Square Enix as well, and was also involved with localizing a number of Matsuno titles, including Final Fantasy XII, Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions and Crimson Shroud.
