8-4 Not Doing Localization For Xenoblade Chronicles 2

8-4 worked on the English localization for Xenoblade Chronicles X, but co-founder John Ricciardi said in a tweet from last month (I’m really up to the minute on this news, ain’t I?) they’re not involved with Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

Nintendo of Europe did the localization for the first Xenoblade, so maybe they’re handling it again this time?

Nintendo currently has Xenoblade Chronicles 2 scheduled for release late this year, we’ll see if it makes it.


Note: Keep any and all complaining about Treehouse/lies about former or current Nintendo employees the hell out of the replies.


He’s been playing video games his entire life, and has gotten progressively worse at them as he’s gotten older and more decrepit. He’s been running this place (into the ground) since 2013. He’s old. Keeps writing about Nintendo despite mountains of evidence proving he should never write anything. Very old. Lifelong Nintendo fan, doesn’t care what you think about that. Did I mention how old he is? Because he’s very old.
