    Alright, this is a shock. Namco Bandai of America is actually localizing a Shounen Jump fighting game. Yeah, you heard right. Very shocking indeed. Also new, it's coming to PS4 which is new since the original Japanese release was PS3 and PSVita exclusive.​

    They shouldn't have trouble localizing that Digimon Vita game now!
    ..Right?

    This was a game I used to want to have an international release but now I couldn't care less what it happens to it since it's been so long.

    I just ran to post this :cry:

    Awesome news either way, I remember having the totally legal translated patch of Jump ultimate vs on DS or whatever it was called, so I'll absolutely pick up the vita version of this game when t comes out. Gotta love fighting on the go, especially with my favorite weab friends >_>

    color me surprised. I always thought such multi franchise Crossovers have no chance to ever get an oversea release. It's just sad that this does not mean that we may also get Super Robot Taisen/Wars games officially translated in the future.

    I remember how awesome Jump ultimate Stars was. Definitely getting that for Vita when it comes out.

    It could easily get butchered in terms of roster honestly. They probably pulled some strings for it but I don't expect every character to get in.

    I'd be happy if it was a cross-buy, but if it isn't, I'll probably grab the Vita version just to support the platform. :D

    If this passes 100% without any changes to the roster then I want a western Battle Stadium D.O.N release!

    I've been put off from importing Battle Stadium D.O.N for PS2 because it's region locked and the NGC due to being pricey for a game that lasts 5-10mins though I'd play every now and then.

    If Bandai released Battle Stadium D.O.N on the Virtual Console of Wii U I'd definitely buy it and with online play? OMG that'd be freaking awesome! It'd be Super Smash Bros. with Goku, Naruto and Luffy!

    I'm doubting that the roster is going to get an axe taken to it. They know the game won't sell if it's nothing more than a crippled version of the Japanese game. You don't take a game that will already have relatively niche western appeal, then do absolutely anything to it after promising a localization. Bamco is dumb, but they aren't that dumb.

    One can only hope that they've spent these past nine months hashing out the rights issues to get the game overseas. It's been quite a bit of time since the first game as well, over eight years time, so there's no saying that rights haven't changed hands to a degree that localizing a game like this has actually become a lot easier.

    You have a point there, their Wii U VC is very lackluster and they don't even have a VC-64 (I want to play Mario 64 with the Pro Controller, Nintendo!) or VC-NGC despite that they made a GameCube adapter.

    It could be released as an eShop/PSN/XBL digital game, though.

    The fact their is no n64 vc on the Wii u two years in is retarded (hell the Wii had it).
    Second if it was released on psn/xbl it wouldn't sell enough units and no more sequals or remakes for NA (cough darkstalkers 4)
