we will have to just wait and see, but i - like almost everyone here - am a huge fan of these games, its easily my favourite series being released today, and it would be a tragedy if western fans are no longer able to enjoy these games in english.
its seems the stumbling block for sega in bringing these games west is just the sheer amount of text contained within the game. translation is expensive since it so time consuming. weighing up these costs against the relatively low sales gives sega a difficult decision in what to do. and now given their current problems makes our position as fans even more difficult.
