Sometime to work towards

The Atelier series of games has certainly been getting more popular around the world, and fans are wondering why they have to wait longer to get the game than Japan. A lot of titles see simultaenous worldwide releases nowadays, but the Atelier franchise isn't one of them. Could that ever change? NintendoEverything spoke to Aterlier series producer Junzo Hosoi, and you can find their response below.

“We are always considering simultaneous worldwide releases. Unfortunately, due to various circumstances we haven’t been able to, but we continue to think about and put our effort into making the games available to the western audience as quickly as we can. We apologize for always making the western audiences wait for the games.”
