Xiao-Mu Isn’t Slowing Down, And Neither Are Atlus And the SRT OG Saga
Initially I wasn’t going to say much about this, but since I’ve noticed the upswing in readership for this article with the news of the western release for SRT OG Saga: Endless Frontier I now feel compelled to say something about it. First of all am I surprised that is being released by Atlus? No, not really. I figured that they had probably retained the SRW license from releasing OG’s 1 and 2 a couple of years back or at the very least retained an interest in it (Extensive dubbing that OGS on PS2 would require aside of course) and this is exactly the type of game Atlus prefers to release. It’s niche, in demand and well….contains a lot of fanservice which is one of Atlus’ things as of late.
Second and arguably more importantly, will I be getting it? The answer is to that to be honest I don’t know. Right now the DS game that I am playing most is Final Fantasy Tactics A2 and that’s been more then enough to keep me engrossed (not to mention I am no where near finished it) and entertained while on the go. Plus with SRW K just over the horizon and a mop up job to do on SRW W I figure I’m tapped for Strategy RPG’s and the like right now. If I will be getting OG Saga it probably won’t be right away, that’s all I can say for the moment other then that this bodes well for SRW’s potential future in the West. I’m glad that Atlus isn’t the type of company to give up so easily on a product after a couple of poor sales and reviews.
