Odds Not Good for OSS in West, According to Capcom

Those of you in North America and Europe waiting for Rockman EXE Operate Shooting Star to be localized may have to throw in the towel and just import. It doesn't sound like Capcom thinks the game will be viable in the market, or perhaps there are other reasons. Needless to to say, Christian Svensson of Capcom of America has this to say over at Capcom*Unity: "For the moment, no plans for a Western release." I can't say I'd be terribly surprised if it weren't localized. As I discussed in my review, the game featured little extended value outside of being a port of the original GBA title Mega Man Battle Network. Something like the Mega Man Zero Collection at least has the value of being a collection of games for a budget price. It also doesn't help that OSS didn't seem to reach healthy sales in Japan. Still, it is a little saddening to see the once mighty Battle Network series go down like this. Of course, if there were enough fan support, Capcom could change their tune. If you want to see OSS localized, definitely let them know over at Capcom*Unity.
