Don’t Hate the Game, Hate the Player

Final Fantasy XIII – No Japanese Tracks in U.S.?

final-fantasy-xiii1Here we go I knew it was coming! Square Enix has put out a lame statement today saying that chances are the game would only have English dub in the U.S.

The problem seems to be that there is not enough space on a 360 DVD. Something I can understand even though Lost Odyssey didn’t seem to have any issues but let’s accept it. The problem is that they seem to use this as a lame excuse to not even bother with the dual voices on the PS3.

Yoshinori Kitase, producer on the game, said “Obviously, when we talk about XIII it’s for PS3 and Xbox — with PS3 being on Blu-ray there would be enough memory, but on Xbox probably not. At the moment we’re thinking of releasing the voice in English only. Are there many people who would like to play with Japanese voices?”

Yes there are!!! I for one will not rush to buy the game if it’s only in English. Shame on the RPG giant for putting less effort into games than Nippon Ichi and Atlus.

N.B: I had written this a while ago but just realized it had never published so here you go.
