A desperate Capcom fan has apparently done the unspeakable and has pretended to be one of the personnel from the Make A Wish Foundation to find out the progress on the Ace Attorney Investigations 2 localization status. The Capcom fan managed to find Capcom’s Senior Vice President of strategic planning and business Christian Svennson phone number and contacted him directly to find out the status of the game. Svennson was apparently rude to the person in question, and obviously refused to give him an answer, saying only that there’s no new information regarding a Western release.
Wow, wonder why Svensson would be rude. He’s usually one of the (very) few people I actually respect at Capcom. Did he know the person was faking just to get information? Though, I wonder why the Make-A-Wish foundation would give shits about the progress of a game. They usually just give kids whatever’s out and don’t bother companies.
i think he knew it was fake, who would be rude to the make a wish foundation
Make a Wish usually does bother companies, they just like the atention
This story is hilarious.
unspeakable? someone’s never been to 4chan…
lol seems like that person really rustled capcoms jimmies
that will enter to the history, a desperate fan lying to uncover the mystery!
OBJECTION…..never mind lol
I would normally not condone such acts, but that’s funny as hell. As a CEO, I’m sure he’s busy and doesn’t have time for such foolishness, but it’s still funny. I’d like for a localization, even if it’s just a digital version. I’d buy it day one.
Reading comprehension fail. Senior Vice President anyway, but the same applies. I want a localization!
I was about to say this is a win, but it’s not cool to pretend to be from the Make-A-Wish foundation :(
Lol that’s actually quite funny. You know you’ve sunk to new depths when you pretend to be a charity just to get new info on a video game. How tragic.
This guy is a legend! Kudos!
Pick up the phone and spam nintendo to release wii U specs, say that you are from the “save the planet” org, and making checks for user safety and eco..
Wait, so he prended to be a member of the foundation, or pretended to be a sick child with a terminal illness.
Well, you obviously can read as you’ve typed a response. It’s not only in the 1st sentence; it’s fucking highlighted in blue.
The word is “personnel”. Try dictionary.com
If he COULD read, then he WOULDNT be asking… right?
Dedicated fan? This is pretty hilarious. I have the first 4 ace attorny games and need to grab Apollo Justice but I would sooo buy this game if it came out!
I think that this would be the best story I’ve heard in years.
Wow, that’s a level of desperation I’ve never seen for a video game before. It’s almost admirable…..almost.
Leave luck to heaven.
Leave Luck to your mother’s asshole.
You DO realize “Leave luck to heaven” is the translation of “Nintendo” right? Don’t be an arrogant fool.
Haha that’s pretty low but it’s still quite funny
That’s just awesome
What a dumbass. This is why you don’t underestimate companies. They know much more than any of us, and they can see right through anybody trying to be a charity representative. Especially if that pretender totally blows it by asking for a very specific game.
I wouldn’t use the Make-A-Wish foundation like that.
What a idiot… Pretending to be from the Make-A-Wish foundation is just the ultimate form of douchebaggery… I am glad Svennson knew that this was an obvious trick and was rude to this guy, putting him in his place.
Well he just got lots of time and nothing else to do on his life… But sometimes not getting info for a game is just fucking revolting. I mean…. what about Luigi’s Mansion 2!? How come no one from Nintendo talked more about the game? *sighs* You’ll see, Luigi’s Mansion 2 will only come out on 2013…
BEAKING NEWS! desperate fanboy trys to get info on Luigis Mansion 2 buy abusing the “Make-A-Wish” foundation!!! LMAO
Beaking news lol?
What’s that, news for birds?
Sven is not hard to get a hold of. You just have to call their San Diego California Head Quaters main number, get customer service on the line and ask to be transferred to him. I called him about the BS they pulled with SFxT. The guys a major prick.
nah svens cool. i talked to him on capcom unity. im sure he gets plenty of ppl like u calling him, so obviously hed get pissed. hes just a normal guy leave him alone even me sending him a 3 paragraph long email on why i think ace attorney investigations 2 ahould be localized and him replying “no info will be given at the moment” probably had him ticked
gamers m i rite guise xD
What bout megaman
Fail. What sort of charity foundation is going to ask about the localization process of a videogame, anyway? :P
What bout megaman
yes and when they make this game this should be one of the cases on it lol
What bout my megaman legeand dwag
