It's Nice To See A Game Company Actually Treat Fans Like Human Beings

NeoGAF poster TunaLover says he wrote a letter to Xseed, the small game company that brings Japanese games to North America.He wanted to know if Xseed would release the Wii remake of Fatal Frame 2 in the United States.

Dear XSEED,

With the recent news about Pandora's Tower localisation is really hard not asking for another great game that has not reached our continent yet, I'm talking about Project Zero 2 (known as Fatal Frame 2 in America), I wonder if the comapny would bring this game over here, it seems you have build a loyal niche fan base that seek your releases on Wii, now that your relationship with Nintendo seems quite close, there are chances for Project Zero 2?

Thanks, for Pandora's Tower and Last Story!

Xseed could have ignored it. It could have responded with an automated "Thank you for writing!" letter. ThItey could have written a boilerplate "We have no plans to blah blah blah." It could have said it doesn't comment on rumours or speculation.

Instead, as Barrera/TunaLover writes, Xseed vice president Ken Berry sent over a personal note.

Hello Sebastian,

Afraid that we have no intention of trying to publish any Fatal Frame titles. Speaking to Tecmo Koei America is going to be your best bet for that title.

It's a single line, and it's nothing but bad news for the person who asked, but it's human. It's honest, open and completely transparent. In an industry that surrounds itself with cool, corporate silence, where big publishers often respond to questions with robotic responses like "We have no information at this time" or "We cannot comment on rumours and speculation", it's refreshing to see companies giving honest answers when they can.

    Good luck finding Tecmo Koei US's PR people. They seem to have dropped off the planet some time in 2011 and are leaving the UK guys to do it.

    To be fair if your going to have to mod your console to play this game with there subs you might as well just get the PAL version of the game
