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.

Funny thing is, most of the games I play on Vita are PSP games. I have 4 vita games and 11 psp games.
Strange that they wouldn't simply finish the game and port it over to the Vita. It's not like the game was going to have state of the art visuals to begin with, but it looked cool enough.
I would have liked to have seen it, especially on a system that isn't exactly overflowing with software right now given how long it's been out.
Damn it, now I'm sad.
I actually wanted one of these!
Damn, I was actually looking forward to this game.
That is often a shame. I can't get ample online games from XSEED. They can be all so wonderful. One in every of my favorite publishers actually.
They'll probably bring it to the vita or make it a PSN downloadable published by capcom.
well, that stinks. i was looking forward to this game. perhaps it could be released as a downloadable game for vita? with prettier graphics? please? no.... oh well.
