    We already know that World Destruction is receiving a localization. It's slated for a late 2009 release in the US. Now the new rumor is that it is receiving a name change. The rumored title for US audiences is "Sands of Destruction". The official story is rather interesting at how they got this information:

    "Consider this one of those rumors that will be confirmed true in about 24 hours. Someone was snooping through SEGA’s FTP and found a listing for Sands of Destruction. Within were screens of World Destruction, but in English. No doubt that this game is coming stateside, but SEGA just isn’t ready to officially announce it yet."

    Screens in English:

    I'm inclined to agree.....if I weren't so happy that they are actually localizing it! Really, there are far too many great games that never get a US release. If the only way to get these games in English is to change the name, I'll deal with it. [​IMG]

    Remember though that this is a rumor. This story may be bogus and the images could be photoshopped or something. And I forgot to include the source, so I added it.

    The status bars dont look very good to me... they look really plain. Maybe its just me, I don't know. If these are real images, are the status bars in the JP version the same?

    Well, as I wrote back in September:
    The menus were functional, go find something else to gripe about or just don't play it if it bothers you that much.

    It's a top notch game, and I'm glad to see I was wrong about the localization potential. Considering how many of these RPGs we typically miss because they don't get translated, this should be well received.

    I deleted it xD
    It was just one or two menus I think, I don't remember.
    By the way, those screenshots are real, the font they're using is the one that was in the Japanese version too, it's an 8x8 font but I have my doubts if they're going to use that font since, some letters like "w", "h" and "m" along with some others look squished, really squished, well as long as it's coming to the US, once it's released I can easily swap the font with a 10x10 one which looks far more better than this one [​IMG]
    Also we can change things like SmashingBlow to Smashing Blow and so on...
