Yet Another Gorgeous JRPG Might Not Make It To The West

Beautiful PSP role-playing game Grand Knights History might not make it to US shores after all. Publisher XSEED has axed plans to localise the Vanillaware-developed RPG, it said in a statement this morning, citing a lack of "development resources".

Although another publisher could theoretically swoop in and pick up US localisation rights for Grand Knights History, that doesn't seem too likely.

You might recognise Vanillaware as the studio behind critically acclaimed PlayStation 2 game Odin Sphere. Grand Knights History also did quite well for the developer, topping charts in Japan when it was released there in 2011.

This news may or may not be related to the sudden publisher change on Vanillaware's last project, Dragon's Crown, which will be out next year for PlayStation 3 and Vita.

    Noooooooo!!! I was hoping we'd get both. I really hope that nothing happens to Dragon's Crown. That reminds me, when's SCEE going to stop being crap with it's PS2 classics selection and bring Grim Grimoire to PSN. The US got it day 1...
