After I picked up and played Endless Frontier: Super Robot Taisen OG Saga I didn’t think it was a shoe in for an international release. While the fighting system was novel there were too many jokes about jubblies. But maybe, just maybe, some brave publisher is localizing it.
Namco Bandai, the parent company of Banpresto, registered Endless Frontier in the US Patent and Trademark database. This trademark comes many months after the game was released in Japan and Namco Bandai wouldn’t register this trademark without a reason. Unless Namco Bandai is working on another game called Endless Frontier this is related to Endless Frontier: Super Robot Taisen OG Saga. However, I don’t think Namco Bandai will be responsible for localizing this. If anyone is taking the job it’s going to be Atlus. They have past experience with the Super Robot Taisen franchise. Actually, they own the rights to the Super Robot Taisen trademark. Also, they’re really one of the few publishers in North America who could give this game a proper translation. And this is going to be one interesting translation to see if this hypothesis is true.
