Back in May, Ryoei Mikage of Imageepoch who held a meeting to discuss among his peers to decide weather or not to bring the unqie 2D-3D title, Toki to Towa  to English audiences(Check here). It seems that answer was a resounding yes! As today, Kay Hirono, producer at Namco Bandai has announced that  Toki to Towa is indeed being worked on for localization to bring  the game to Western Regions.

When asked by at this years Comic Exhibition in Taipei, the question arised if Toki to Towa would see a release in Taiwan. He answered with this:

“This time, I brought with me the newest info on the game for everyone who likes Vofan (the game’s artist). Besides the Japanese version, there are only plans to release an English version. So far, I am sorry, there are no plans to produce a Chinese version of the game.”

As of now Namco Bandai themselves has yet to state anything official, but we will be updating this when the time comes.

    It really looks like the gameplay takes a backseat to all the animated cut scenes and style of the characters while the in game environments look rather bland… Not sure if I should care or be interested yet.


  • Despite the differing opinions of how this game “looks,” it is great that we will probably get a chance to find out for ourselves.

  • Aw man! Just found out this is PS3 exclusive. This is really making me want to get a PS3 now……… All these awesome RPGs are coming to PS3; Ni No Kuni, Toki to Towa………. I just can’t afford a PS3 right now. I have a 360 though. I wonder……… does anyone know where I can get a PS3 for a decent price?

  • Good for Namco Bandai.

    anime style game: check
    battle system that i haven’t really seen before: check

    do i want this game: pretty much

  • u.s. collector’s edition n/b…we need that…hear me?…$$$ already being saved…

  • Alhough I understand that other people might not think so, this game looks really good to me, and the battle system especially seems entertaining. Looks like I have 3 PS3 RPGs to look forward to from Bamco: this, Ni No Kuni and Xillia.

    • I agree. Some people seemed to not be impressed when they saw the actual gameplay, but I think it looks interesting. Definitely worth a look.

    While “plans to release an English version” is still kinda vague to me, I’m happy with this news. But still it’s nothing official so we’ll just have to wait and see.
