Compile Heart has announced a new role-playing brand for Japan-specific customers called Galapagos RPG. There's a placeholder page up now, but that's about all you'll hear until the next update, which is scheduled for April 24. Check back in a couple of days.

The folks at Gematsu say that the first title from the brand will be a fantasy game, due out by the end of the year. For Japan, of course, with this being a Japan-specific release company.

What the hell does that mean anyway? I'm reading the announcement as games made for Japanese audiences. But aren't nearly all Japanese RPGs made for Japanese audiences already?
