Another Atlus-published JRPG, Crimson Gem Saga
released a set of screenshots today for the PSP role-playing game. Here we're seeing hard-earned localization tax dollars at work, as there's not a single dangling modifier or broken English phrase in the whole lot. My only tangentially-related concern is the ubiquity of the word "fail" in our interwebs lexicon. (You'll see one pic with the words "Escape Failed!" emblazoned on the screenshot.) But that's not anything I will hold Atlus or developer Matrix Software accountable for. I also think it's an awkward choice when there's always one character in the cast that doesn't match the art style as everyone else. Check out the grimacing bald-headed dude to see a case in point. He ends up looking like the Token Western-Developed Video Game Guy, for some reason.
