I wish I didn't have to deliver this heart breaking news, but someone has got to do it.
XSEED Games has officially announced that their planned localization of the beautiful Vanillaware RPG Grand Knights History has been canceled. They cite lacking the required resources to localize the title, resulting in a necessity to cancel it. Given that XSEED Games is composed of about eight people total, this shouldn't come as too much of a surprise.
Localization specialist Tom Lipschultz had commented multiple times over at the XSEED Games message board that they had been waiting for Vanillaware to get back to them for some time. VW, being a small Japanese company, had been busy with all the Dragon's Crown issues that recently came to light. As a result, they were incapable of sparing programmers to work on the localization, effectively stalling XSEED's progress on the title.
The worst part? This isn't the first time that an XSEED/Vanillaware partnership has fallen through. They were the first company contacted to localize Muramasa: The Demon Blade, before Ignition swooped in and grabbed it.
It's ok if you shed tears. I won't tell anyone.
