    While the PSP isn't exactly the center of attention nowadays, it still had a few localizations coming, including Gungnir, Growlanser, and most notably, Vanillaware's Grand Knights History. However, it seems the latter has been stopped for localization.

    Publisher XSEED announced in a statement today that "XSEED Games has confirmed it will not publish Grand Knights History in North America as previously announced. Unfortunately, it was determined that development resources required to localize the game were not available, necessitating its cancellation."

    Vanillaware, however, is developing Dragon's Crown for the PS3 and PS Vita, due for English release in 2013. For Grand Knights History however, it seems to be the end of the road.

    Not exactly front page worthy but still worth knowing.

    I was also looking forward to this..

    Well, it seems the PSP is slowly dying too.. Might as well as sell it, if nothing's getting released anymore.

    Anywhere you think of me.
    Sad...

    I really wanted to try this one...

    Hope Gungnir and Growlanser doesn't suffer the same fate or i will have to box my psp way earlier than i wanted too.

    So so sad :( Really liked the look of this game, could have been the last big new PSP game I'd play.

    I'm really surprised they didn't just cancel a physical copy and do it digital, I mean with the Vita out now it seems like the most sensible thing to do.

    It won't.
    As with XSEED, Atlus is also having major problems with Vanilla that's why it was pushed back to 2013.
    Well it's not because of the money, they had all the script translated and was pretty much done it's just that Vanilla let them down and it got too late.

    There is:
    The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky aka Sora no Kiseki
    - First Chapter
    - Second Chapter
    - Third Chapter
    The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Zero aka Zero no Kiseki which is a sequel to Sora no Kiseki
    The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Blue aka Ao no Kiseki which is a sequel to Zero no Kiseki.

    There is also a new game coming out called Nayuta no Kiseki but it is a completely new game and not related to previous Kiseki games.

    All of them are out in Japanese (except from Nayuta), we've only got Trails in the Sky First Chapter.

    I understand not wanting to chance the costs, but this still has to be a rough blow.
