It would appear that status of Moero Crystal‘s English Asian release, announced last September at TGS is unknown, if this tweet from import site Play-Asia is anything to go by.

It’s worth noting that this comes after the previous preorder listing for the “Chinese & English Subs” version was removed and replaced with this listing for Chinese subs only. This is scheduled to release this month in the Asian region.

This willl be bad news for those who have been anticipating this game. Hopefully for them this game will still be released as announced. But we here at Operation Rainfall will keep you updated either way.

Genkai Tokki: Moero Crystal released last September in Japan exclusively for PS Vita.

Think Valkyrie Drive with guys and you're on the right lines.

    My sadness is infinite >.< I checked that listing once or twice a week eager to throw money at them… but I noticed it change to chinese only.

    Well balls. I was really looking forward to this. I enjoyed Chronicle and heard that Crystal improved on several of its weak points. I still hope that an Asia English release will magically appear. I also hope that this doesn’t spell doom for Genkai Tokki.

      Part of me hopes that IFI will look into localising Seven Pirates – that might be able to avoid censorship if kept out of Australia.

    • I’m pretty sure if Monster Monpiece on Steam sells massively well we will probably see the other games brought west… though there has been no news of the Monster Monpiece Steam edition in over half a year now…
      Hopefully we get an update soon.

      There would be issues with that with regards to the Vita’s touchscreen…I also question whether it’d be allowed on Steam, but if Liar-soft softcore eroges can make it I’d wager these games will as well.

      Fairy Fencer F Steam was also kept in the dark as well for some time before the beta opened so there’s that to consider.

    • IFI announced late last year that they will be bringing it to steam uncensored this year. But will be missing the multiplayer mode.

      My comment was just that it’s been a long time since they have said anything else about it since that announcement. A lot of their other ports seem to have been released a lot faster.

    NOOOOOOOOOOO, I was so excited for this game to come out, I loved Moe Chronicle so much. (╬ಠ益ಠ)

  • MusouTensei

    Fuck this world.

    Aww, that sucks! I wonder if it’s possible if Play-Asia, the company would help fund an English language version. English Asian games mean more sales, and having a Play-Asia exclusive game would be great for business.

      It might not be money that’s the problem, and lack of audience size certainly isn’t. I really hope this is either:
      a) a technical/resource problem, as in Compile Heart aren’t available to program the English subs into the game
      b) translation quality problems or lack of translators available, MoeChro did have some occasional issues but nowhere near as bad as Hollow Fragment
      c) The translation is still on track but Sony are releasing it later but keeping it quiet
      I really hope this isn’t ideological, and it sucks that I’m even thinking that.

  • Neppers

    If all else fails, email PQube and ask if they’ll do it. I was really looking forward to this, too.

    Meanwhile, thanks to Henkaku, some hard working fans are already translating the game…
