This was new when it first came out on PSP, almost making me get one then. One I got one at the start of the year I completely forgot about the game.
I saw mention of the PC port from Steam, Japan, and missed opportunities describing a few of the barriers on why small Japanese developers avoid their games on PC for a global audience.
With the recent news Valve meeting with Inafune hopefully we will see more support from Valve and more japanese games coming to PC and Steam.
Valve Contacted Japanese Developers to Bring Their Games to Steam
Luminous Arc 1 and 2 are great turn based handheld games and I could see become popular on the PC (which seems to have a good audience for TBS).Marvelous AQL has a long list of titles they could bring to Steam like Luminous Arc 3,No More Heroes, and Grand Knights History. I asked Salazar what’s next for Marvelous AQL and Steam? Will we see original games made for PC? Ports of games that didn’t get localized?"At this point, we are considering our best options. The PC is a killer platform, Steam is a dynamite service, and as long as I’m here I’ll be championing both for our games, old or new. The best things you can do to see more games from us on Steam is pick up this game and let us know you are interested in others. I can’t give you any specific hints, but if the game sells reasonably well, I personally would like to see us doing something *grand* on the PC. I think others would too, but first I have to show my bosses it’s a lucrative platform."
Maybe Japanese Developers need to start putting some titles up on Steam Greenlight to see what interest is out there?
Edit: Steam Link
