Agarest Senki Zero Confirmed for Western Localization

If you’ll recall, the first Record of Agarest War was released earlier this year to mixed reactions. Aside from its over-the-top, vaguely inappropriate, hentai-like marketing, the game was rated T for Teen and was actually quite the underrated strategy RPG. I’d still like to work my way through the rest of the game at some point, because it is so far a very deep and rewarding experience.

Today comes news that its sequel, Agarest Senki Zero, has been confirmed for Western localization via the game’s European publisher, Ghostlight. (If you want to catch up, check out the two videos and screens for the title we’ve previously talked about.) Aksys published the first title in North America, and released a physical Xbox 360 version here, along with a download-only version for the PS3. It’s unclear if Aksys will indeed be publishing this follow-up or not, as I’m getting conflicting info from both the source of this news and the official press release from Ghostlight, but I’d say at this point it is probably a good bet.
