  • It’s actually kind of cool to see Aksys doing so well with BlazBlue. I remember when I first started seeing the company’s logo on game boxes and wondering who the heck these guys were, releasing things like Castle of Shikigami III on the Wii and then the original BlazBlue. I also have to say that their localization has gotten miles better in that short time frame, as well. The voices in CoS3 were painful to listen to at times (and I believe that the localization actually contained some translation errors, though I may be wrong on that point), but BlazBlue, even with its crazy, convoluted story has a great localization effort behind it. And their work on 999 is top-notch.

    Seriously, if anyone at Aksys is reading this, nice work, guys.
