I agree with this. Visual novels usually are too much work. The Hayarigami series is much older than the 2014 PS3/PSV game (the first game released in 2004 for PS2), and even in the earlier days, they never localised it. Exile Election doesn't look like the kind of VN that would do well (at least in the west; I'm not sure about its performance in Japan, but I remember it didn't move a lot). Not on PS, but also not on Steam or Switch. I think NISA's priorities are a bit skew. The Witch and the Hundred Knight 2 is a big game for NISJ yet it takes them more than a year to release it in the west. I was actually surprised by the October release of Yomawari: Midnight Shadows. Meanwhile, they're localising things that I don't think will make a lot of money, like The Lost Child and Tokyo Tattoo Girls. They also released Touhou Kobuto V in the west. They should've known that that's not a great game, and a 40/100 Metascore won't do good to their reputation. The same goes for Ys VIII's localisation catastrophe. They're not very careful, which is a real shame... I think Hakoniwa Company Works was for the most part a learning effort for UE4 development. Lack of a portable version really hurt the game yeah. After all those reports about how easy it is to port UE4 projects to the Switch, I'm kind of surprised that they didn't release it on there too (since UE4 doesn't support the PSV). I don't see that game getting localised, but I think projects like this demand much less localisation work for NISA and therefore are easier for them to consider. It's weird that NISJ themselves seem so lax on the localisation of their games. NISA is 100% owned by NISJ after all. As for NISJ development efforts, I've written a whole post earlier in this thread. I think it's too soon for Yomawari 3, but instead hope they port 1+2 to Switch first before releasing the third game for PC/PS4/NSW in 2019. Disgaea 6 seems like a given. Coven 2 would be cool too, but I expect that to stay in Japan (or NISA needs to announce localisation real soon). NISA have had since June 2016 to localise the game and add it to the PS4 version that was released in September 2017 in Japan. About the Penny-Punching Princess team, NIS will release a new brawler on March 8, 2018 in Japan for NSW/PS4/PSV, so there's that.
