Today Clouded Leopard Entertainment published a new trailer of the upcoming JRPG Ys Memoire: The Oath in Felghana with English subtitles.
Unfortunately, it isn't what you may think it is. It doesn't herald a release for the western market. Clouded Leopard Entertainment is actually launching the game only in Traditional Chinese and Korean (with Japanese audio), but it's still publicizing it with a trailer in English for the Asian market. It appears that no English localization will be released by the publisher, though.
The Asian version will be released for Nintendo Switch on May 25, about a month after the Japanese release on April 27.
You can check out the trailer below.
This isn't the first time that Clouded Leopard releases a trailer in English for games that it isn't actually releasing in English. Nihon Falcom's own The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki, and The Legend of Heroes: Kuro no Kiseki 2: Crimson Sin got the same treatment.
Clouded Leopard is usually very fast at localization, often releasing day and date with Japan as it did with the recent tactics JRPG Relayer by Dragami Games, but the license for the western and English release of Nihon Falcom's games appears to remain firmly in NIS America's hands. This means that we don't know when we'll get to play the two Kuro no Kiseki games and The Oath in Felghana, as we're still waiting for Trails into Reverie and no further announcements have been made.
If you're unfamiliar with Ys Memoire: The Oath in Felghana, it's a remaster of the 2005 classic Ys: The Oath in Felghana, which was already a remake for the PlayStation Portable of the venerable Ys III: Wanderers from Ys released all the way back in 1989. So yes, it's basically a remaster of a remake.
