Due to the extremely high volume of scripts and music, approximately three times more than that of Disgaea® 2: Cursed Memories, Haru Akenaga President of NIS America had decided to take a longer period of time for localizing Ar Tonelico: Melody of Elemia. “Because Ar Tonelico was such a huge hit in Japan, and it is an extremely distinctive title, I would like to provide the localization team more time to work on this game in order to bring the highest quality product of this very new and exciting simulation role-playing game to our local customers.
Moreover, Ar Tonelico is well known for the “Moé” (pronounced “mo-éh”) style RPG in Japan. I want the localization team to be able to express this popular Japanese feeling of Moe to the American gamers through the gameplay,” Haru Akenaga President of NIS America says.
Ar Tonelico: Melody of Elemia will be released in February 2007.
