This was cancelled because of issues on Vanillaware's end, not because of XSEED. This shouldn't have any effect on the Trails series. (It actually might benefit it because now XSEED will have more people available to work on SC.)
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.
Atlus is already taking a huge chance with Gungnir and Growlanser 4, and presumably Persona 2 EP on PSP. I don't think they'd be eager to jump in on another PSP game. Besides, if Vanillaware is indeed the holdup, then Atlus would be met with the same problem XSEED had.
Yeah, nothing's officially been said about the problem, as I don't think XSEED would bash VW in a press release, but stating that "development resources required to localize the game were not available" sounds like issues with the developer. That combined with Dragon's Crown changing hands, being delayed to 2013, and getting development help from Atlus/Index sure makes it seem like the problem lies on VW.
Ahh I was not aware, my first time with the series is Trails in the Sky, so i'm not as familiar as I would like to be with it yet.
Seems like it would be tough to localize all of them though since I would imagine games of this type would take awhile to localize. Where in the series would be the best place to pick up if they had to skip some installments?
It does not seem like XSeed is the type of company that has ulimited resources, so I would imagine they would have to be somewhat picky about what they pick up or don't.
The worst thing about this cancellation is that the translations are actually done may actually be done? Didn't Xseed or someone from Xseed say that they were done and just waiting for Vanillaware to respond their emails? for updates themselves? And they later said they were too busy with Dragon's Crown to do any programming for GKH?
