Well, there is no need to dub the game! As long as the subs are good, I don't care wether they speak Japanese or English.
If its being released in America… yes it does need a dub. The TINY harcore fanbase that doesn't care isn't the target. They want a wide audience.
If you're lucky, they'll have an option to switch between dub/sub.
What other big Koei games have yet to come out in NA or Europe?
For the Wii, DS, PSP, Vita, PS3. X-box and PC…
Warirors Orochi 3, which was JUST announced to hit at the end of March.
Dynasty Warriors NEXT
Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce 2 HD Ver
Dynasty Warriors 7 with Xtreme Legends (PC)
Ninja Gaiden 3
Pokemon + Nobunaga's Ambition
Romance of the Three Kingdoms XII
Samurai Warriors XL
Samurai Warriors 3: Empires
Samurai Warriors 3Z Special
and of course, One Piece: Pirate Warriors.
That's just the games announced/out in Japan from last year, this year just started. There will be more to the pile as the year goes on. They're probably about due to announce Gundam 4 or FotNS2 after the advertising for OP is done.
Bleach came out in Europe about 2 months later than in Japan, and Bleach is definitely not as popular in Europe as One Piece. I'm not sure, but I think Bleach was developed by Koei as well.
No, it wasn't. Cheap knockoff from another company, and by all accounts it sucked. A lot.
