It seems it's been canceled, as predicted by FinalMacstorm in this thread and now confirmed via his very own tweet a few moments ago.
https://twitter.com/#!/FinalMacstorm...17636492476418

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. We regret not being able to bring the game to our fans, but we are committed to our 2012 lineup and look forward to sharing more on these games in the coming weeks and months.

EDIT: I don't wanna change the post's wording because I'm lazy but know that it was originally here http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=472017 before some mod decided to make a new thread for it.

If the issue is on Vanillaware's side, getting another publisher isn't going to help matters.

Damn that sucks...I love Vanillaware and the games they make, but with any luck this just means that XSeed and release other games in it's place. Ragnarok Odyssey, Y's Vita , and the Vita Tits game will make up for this XSeed, make it happen.

I'm unfamiliar with the Series as awhole so maybe i'm getting the title of the series wrong, but this : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pj2YTW3khFc is what i'm talking about.

If they were going to do those wouldent they have already though? It's my understanding that they have been out for quite some time in Japan, if XSeed can't get SC, and Third over here for whatever reason, the Vita game seems the next best starting point. Atleast this is my understand from others that are more familiar with the series.

You should feel bad for those that gave them their credit card info when they were hacked and how they poorly handled the case.

Can't think of any other examples offhand, wanna help me out here? I can think of times when publishers have expressed interest in bringing something over in like interviews and stuff, but this had a press release and official razzle dazzle announcement and everything.

Someone would have to make a game for the Vita before they could attempt to localize it.

Ah, didn't know that. The xseed pr makes it sound like they were just too busy to do it...
