The lights are on
It's gotta be mean streets for a PSP game these days, given the irrelevance of the platform. Apparently developer Vanillaware's Grand Knights History is the latest casualty.
Publisher XSEED has stopped localization of the game due to "development resources" not being available. The game, out already in Japan, was to be brought over here for an unspecified release.
The official statement from XSEED reads: "XSEED Games has confirmed it will not publish Grand Knights History in North America as previously announced. Unfortunately, it was determined that development resources required to localize the game were not available, necessitating its cancellation. We regret not being able to bring the game to our fans, but we are committed to our 2012 lineup and look forward to sharing more on these games in the coming weeks and months."
At least fans of Vanillaware's games can still look forward to Dragon's Crown for the PS3 and Vita.

Bummer. I don't know that I will ever own the Vita. This game looked interesting enough.
Atlus,.....TO THE RESCUE!!!!!
time to import i guess.
vita dlc maybe?
Ouch.... That sucks for people who still love PSP.
That is a shame. I can't get enough games from XSEED. They are all so great. One of my favorite publishers ever.
So sad :( So many games come out each year, but I feel a little empty inside when one gets canceled....
they need a way to play UMDs with the vita
That's really disappointing, I was looking forward to the game. The recent problems with Dragon's Crown are definitely to blame.
If the Vita was actually backwards compatible, they probably would have released it anyway.
And I was really looking forward to this game too...
Damn it I wanted to play it
Shame. I was really looking forward to this... Especially after Xenoblade Chronicles found its way to our shores, I was hopeful we'd actually get more releases...
Another reason the I hate the Vita. The list of new PSP games get shorter and the system also gets more invisible and the Vita is constantly mentioned whenever the PSP gets any news. Vita F**K YOU!!!!!!!!!
