Gamers will be “pleasantly surprised” with Muramasa localization, will have subtitles

This information comes from a recent 1UP Yours podcast…
“We’re going to have the English build playable on the show floor at our booth at E3… [Localization is] going great. I think people will be pleasantly surprised that we’re leaving a lot of it in tact and we’re not [messing] with it so much. There will be subtitles available…That’s a reveal on that podcast.” – Director of Business Development, Ignition Entertainment
I know a lot of you were pretty surprised (myself included) when XSEED said that they were no longer the published of Muramasa. However, it seems as though Ignition is doing more than a respectable job with localizing the title.

“It’s the very end. If I had to say one word, I’d say it’s at the very end of production. No, not playable [at E3]. I’m looking forward to it. Hopefully This slideshow could not be started.

High Voltage not worried about MadWorld sales
Posted 13 years ago by Brian in News, Wii | 2 Comments
“This is something that gets brought up quite a lot, but we’re not concerned at all. Those games, and you can point to a few others as well… I think they’re great games, but they’re mature games. I think there’s a nomenclature that you need to be certain on. Those games are gory and they are aesthetically niche. They’re boutique games. They’re great games and I love them, however I know that they’re not accessible and they’re not the kind of titles that are going to tap into both core and mainstream [audiences]. When I say that we’re core, I mean that we have a level of detail and depth and customisation and variety that core gamers demand. When I say that we’re accessible and that we’re also aiming for the mainstream, that is why we specifically chose the art style we did, and the setting. The theme is very much in the mindset of going for that Hollywood blockbuster feel. I think we’re absolutely different beasts to those other games. I love to be in the company of those great developers and I think they did amazing work. I would never defame anything that they’ve done and I’m happy to support them with my own dollars, however I do think that we have a much better shot at financial success than they did.” – High Voltage chief creative officer Eric Nofsinger
Early on, High Voltage has expressed beliefs that The Conduit could appeal to more than just the hardcore audience. This could be true, especially because of the game’s level of customization, but at the end of the day, The Conduit will mostly be purchased by the core gamers.
LONDON & SAN FRANCISCO (Wednesday 20th May, 2009) — SEGA® Europe Ltd., and SEGA® of America, Inc., today announced Jambo! Safari, an action packed African adventure exclusively for the home video game system, Wii™, and the Nintendo DS™ system. Hitting stores late in 2009, Jambo! Safari takes the fun and excitement of the classic 1990’s arcade action title and reinvents it with modern graphics and deeper gameplay, suited to today’s Nintendo consumers.
As with the original, the new Jambo! Safari allows you to play as one of four safari park rangers, but this time they are fully customisable. With the ultimate aim of becoming a fully qualified ranger, players must take on high speed challenges and exciting rescue missions across the rich and varied free-roaming landscapes of the African Plains. Using one of the four customisable vehicles, including the licensed Land Rover Defender 90 and 110, rangers will need to ensure the animals in their park are healthy and happy. The vast range of Jambo! Safari missions include rescuing animals in need, diagnosing and treating them before releasing them back to the wild, wildlife photography, sight seeing adventures and even hot air balloon rides!
