Is it Tokyo Magnitude 8.0?This looks amazing, it reminds me of an Anime I watched ages ago about the after effects of a major earthquake (I cannot remember the name right now).
When it comes to a western release for Disaster Report 4, one has always been in the back of the developer’s minds. Even back in the days of development at Irem, Kujo-san confirmed that “it was always planned to be released in the west.” Once the project’s development was revived, Granzella still “wanted to release the game overseas.” The biggest obstacle in doing so was finding the right partner to bring the game over.
As for how Granzella thinks western audiences will react to the game and its distinctly Japanese setting, they actually seemed unsure. “We are half expectant and half hesitant. It might be a little too Japanese,” he told us. That being said, the success of Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories in the west will be very important if fans want to ensure future Disaster Report titles, or new Granzella titles in general, make their way to the United States and Europe. “We will be surveying the Western fanbase, and plan to put out something to gather their opinions.” Releases like this and the recently crowdfunded R-Type Final 2 are “part of that plan.”
Kazuma Kujo also told DualShockers that Granzella and NIS America do not plan on removing, changing, or censoring any content in the western release as of now, but he did say that “as localization progresses, things that need to be changed may appear.” The western release seems to be the end of the road for the long development saga of Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories, and Kazuma Kujo and co. seem quite happy about being at that point. “It may have a slightly different feel for an adventure game, but we want you to experience the events of a major earthquake, the situation of the city, and the actions of the people in it. We hope you enjoy Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories.”
When everything crumbles away, all that will remain will be the choices you've made. What story will you tell? How will you be remembered? What will be the cost of the choices you make? The lives of many depend upon you in Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories!
