E.X. Troopers localization still not in the cards
To the surprise of no one, Capcom still isn’t planning on localizing E.X. Troopers for North America or Europe. Based on comments from Christian Svensson, it would appear that the company was never planning on bringing it over in the first place.
It would take a lot of work to localize E.X. Troopers if Capcom were to ever think about heading in this direction. Svensson wrote on the Capcom-Unity boards that a great deal of art would need to be redone and the project would require much more than a standard localization effort.
“It was not planned for Western release… you can tell this because all of the text is ‘hard coded’ as actual art. The text isn’t just standard ‘text’ that could be swapped relatively easily. To localize a release, one would have to redo a ton of art in the game, not just do the localization and loc QA.”
