Half-Minute Hero must sell more to localize sequel


8:00 AM on 11.25.2012



Half-Minute Hero has been released a few times now across various platforms, but it doesn't sound like we're much closer to seeing Half-Minute Hero 2 localized for Western audiences. Speaking with Siliconera about the possibility of such, Marvelous AQL producer Esteban Salazar revealed that "it's considerably more expensive to put out the sequel and [they] need to sell a lot more of the first game on PC to begin to justify it."

Salazar suggests that interested parties might "encourage their friends to buy the Steam version" or just "buy it for them." Isn't it fortunate then that the game just so happens to be 40% off on Steam at the moment? Sure, it might seem a bit like hostage-holding, but Half-Minute Hero is a pretty great game in its own right and, regardless of whatever happens with the follow-up, it'd be nice for more folks to enjoy the original game's unique brand of humor.
