Xseed Will "Do What They Can" About Localizing Corpse Party: Blood Drive

0

Xseed have been been bringing the Corpse Party series of horror RPGs over to the west for some time now, but haven’t announced plans for the next game, Corpse Party: Blood Drive, which is slated for release in Japan in 2014.

 

Over on their Facebook page, a fan asked Xseed if they could “plz for the love of god” localize Blood Drive in 2014, and an Xseed representative responded: “You’re preaching to the choir, but that’s not our decision alone to make. Will do what we can, though.”

 

Meanwhile, another fan asked about Xseed publishing Game Center CX: Arino in District 3 for the Nintendo 3DS. The response to this request was less positive. Xseed replied: “Nobody would be happier than us to publish it, but our bank would cry…”

 

Finally, Xseed also reiterated that a physical release for the PSP version of The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky Second Chapter wouldn’t be possible.

 

In response to that particular request, they replied: “Sorry, but that’s just not in the cards for this title. Releasing a PSP game in mid-2014 even as a download-only title was risky enough as it was, since from a business perspective doing PC only was the smarter move, but still [got] a PSP release approved somehow so that we didn’t leave the original supporters of the first game on PSP hanging.”
