XSEED and Marvelous have launched a special blog for Rune Factory 4 Special, which details the process of localizing the game for the West.
As you know, Rune Factory 4 Special is set to launch on February 25/28 for the West, almost 7 months after it initially launched in Japan last year. This new blog chronicles the challenging process of the localization process, and can be found on Xseed’s website here.
You can read an excerpt of the blog’s first post below:
The Western release of Rune Factory 4 Special has been in development for about a year as of this writing. For most of us at XSEED Games, this is our first time working on the game in any capacity (though some of us had played it, of course!), so throughout the localization of the game’s new material and the QA process, we’ve had the chance to fall in love with the world of Selphia and the game’s many wonderful characters. Working on a title with such a strong localization has been a humbling experience, and we wanted to make sure to do it justice for all its fans.
