Readers of this website might know that many of the writers here have been hoping that Square Enix’s Bravely Default: Flying Fairy receives an English localisation (and French, German, Spanish and Italian for everyone else, because we’re nice). In fact, we even launched “OperationBrave” for that purpose.
Today, MyNintendoNews posted up an article that states that there might have been a leak of a list of 3DS software due for release in 2013 at a Spanish press event for Paper Mario: Sticker Star. While no new titles are named and many of them listed there are those we know are already being localised (such as Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and Fire Emblem Awakening) there were other titles listed that had yet to have European, or even an English language, release confirmed (Bold means localisation rumoured, italics means European release rumoured):
Adventure Time; Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage?
Bravely Default: Flying Fairy
Code of Princess
Phoenix Wright 5
If this is true, then this is truly a big leak. There are numerous fan groups (including our own OperationBrave and partner Bring Bravely Default to the West) trying to get Bravely Default: Flying Fairy localised and Katsuhiro Harada (Tekken‘s producer) has himself proposed localisation of Project X-Zone, while a new Phoenix Wright game is obviously going to appease the fans of that franchise.
At this moment, these are rumours but hopefully they will be confirmed soon!
