Mugen no Frontier coming to the US

The Super Robot Wars series has been running since the NES days. Its releases have usually been restricted to Japan. The Nintendo DS has already had a Super Robot Wars title; Super Robot Wars W. It was released on 1st March, 2007 in Japan and Japan only.

However, the DS’s second title in the series, Mugen no Frontier: Super Robot Wars OG Saga, is getting a stateside release. It’s only the 3rd title in the franchise’s history to ever be released outside of Japan.

Namco Bandai, the parent company of Banpresto, registered Endless Frontier in the US Patent and Trademark database. This trademark comes many months after the game was released in Japan and Namco Bandai wouldn’t register this trademark without a reason. Unless Namco Bandai is working on another game called Endless Frontier this is related to Endless Frontier: Super Robot Taisen OG Saga. However, I don’t think Namco Bandai will be responsible for localizing this. If anyone is taking the job it’s going to be Atlus. They have past experience with the Super Robot Taisen franchise. Actually, they own the rights to the Super Robot Taisen trademark. Also, they’re really one of the few publishers in North America who could give this game a proper translation.
