Ghostlight PC Interview Image

Ghostlight, a localization publisher responsible for giving Europe hits like Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne (Lucifer’s Call in their PAL release), is planning on bringing more of their titles from consoles to the PC. The move should reach out to a bigger audience globally, especially in the West.

They’ve begun by submitting Agarest: Generations of War, previously an Xbox 360 and PS3 title, to Steam Greenlight. Based on the results, they hope to find it a promising platform they can use to bring Japanese RPG’s to gamers worldwide.

Read more about this shift from console to the PC and Ghostlight’s reasoning for it in their interview with VentureBeat. (http://venturebeat NULL.com/2013/04/05/ghostlights-worldwide-steam-releases-could-help-japanese-role-playing-games/)
