I recently spoke with Nao Zook, Public Relations Manager of NIS America, and was told that Atelier Annie for the Nintendo DS won’t have translated voice over’s, but instead will retain it’s original Japanese audio track. This is indeed a good thing as most north american RPG gamers prefers the original Japanese audio track.
The game has currently no release date but it will be coming for sure in North America. We should have our hands-on preview of the US copy late next week. Check back again for more Atelier Annie info!
