It was a sad day indeed when we all found out that Tokitowa was probably not going to get localized in the west. Today we can kiss those tears goodbye as Imageepoch's CEO Ryoei Mikage drops a few tweets that might hint at a localization after a follower sends him a tweet that involved him/her begging for a western release of Tokitowa.
If the game were to come out in the west, there is a chance that Namco Bandai might handle the release, since they also happen to be the ones that are publishing it in Japan. However, we cannot be too sure until a clearer confirmation is brought to light.
Depending on how they play their cards, they could take advantage of the 2D animated characters as a means to market the game, since the presentation looks rather beautiful and intriguing. If the execution is done right when we get to see a trailer of Tokitowa's gameplay in action, then there is a great chance that it could win other people over.
