Capcom USA’s Senior Vice-President, Christian Svensson, has revealed via the Capcom Unity forums that the intriguing E.X Troopers most likely won’t come to the West. One of the problems with localizing the game is that the text featured throughout E.X Troopers is hard-coded as actual art. To localize a release, Capcom would have to redo some of the art featured within the game.
“You can tell this because all of the text is ‘hard coded’ as actual art. The text isn’t just standard ‘text’ that could be swapped relatively easily.”
“To localize a release, one would have to redo a ton of art in the game, not just do the localization and loc QA.”
