I only discovered this because I got the URL of the official site as a blog hit. That’s right it turns out that Bright Shadow is coming in English and licensed by no other than….GamepotUSA! 😯 It’s pretty weird since Gamania Japan has the license to the Japanese one, but Gamepot USA is picking up the English one o_O. Hmm haha I don’t know what to think. I’ve not really kept up with the Japanese bright shadow much but from what I saw basically their only updates were lottery items and the lottery in BS is really terrible – you only get 1 piece of an outfit and you have the chance of getting a piece of an outfit that only lasts for 7 days so it’s not even permanent! @_@ In addition to the terrible TERRIBLE physics and clipping, as well as pretty much no places to save so you gotta keep running back & forth and the lack of WASD…make this a pretty crappy game hahaha. But maybe they improved it recently? I doubt it though to be honest. Oh well I suppose this will attract some kind of an audience, maybe I’ll sign up for a closed beta for shits & giggles and compare the two or something.
Isn’t it funny how all these MMOs that I tried in Japan are suddenly getting licensed? Are game developers reading my blog? 😆
Edit: The Game Features page lists “eye dye” and “Gender free armor” wut? I’m 100% sure that I’ve gotten male pants dropped from a monster before and I have to give them to JP and vice versa. Did they implement a ton of new shit in the last 3 months or something? Guess we’ll have to see!
