Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth

Bandai Namco will consider localizing Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth if a fan petition reaches 50,000 signatures, the company’s European community manager Isshak Gravi said on Twitter. 

Currently, a Change.org petition calling for the localization of Cyber Sleuth and/or Digimon World Re: Digitize Decode for 3DS has reached over 30,400 signatures.

Gravi added that while reaching 50,000 won’t automatically ensure the game will be localized, it will “start a discussion” within the company.

“That’s your best bet fans, to try and START a discussion,” he said. “Digimon isn’t what it used to be & a 3DS/Vita JRPG is not the easiest to bring over.”

Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth is currently scheduled for a 2015 release in Japan.
