I can assure everyone that we all had began watching One Piece when it was in English unless you watched it online in japanese because you're one of those people who wouldn't give english voices a chance
No one has hated the dub, but at one point we wanted to see more of the anime but the dub hasn't made it far at the time. So we went to the japanese dub knowing that the show was ahead over 200 episodes. after all that time we began to love the voices and forgot that we liked the english dub as well. I am not saying Japanese dub is better but we all had watch the anime first as an english dub, same goes for naruto DBZ and bleach.
It would not flop because the game itself is great, but now adding extra audio will make it flop? Some of you don't know how sales work but only stating opinions.
If you guys won't sign the petition because if they did the dubbing the game will be released later, then just get the japan version and watch walkthroughs, because no one knew about the game being released unless if it was from the internet.
The voices aren't weird of whatever also because if it that was the case then Funimation would of ended it a while back not including the gap between when the anime return to Funimation duew to 4Kids license and being sued People are buying it if they can continue making dubs including the Strong World and Film Z movie.
I love the Dub as much as the Japanese version except English Franky's voice, I can't imagine him saying SUPER lol
This post somewhat makes me think you aren't really understanding what people are trying to get across to you.
Nobody, as far as I've noticed, has even brought up the quality of the dub voices at all. It would be ridiculous to bring up, after all, because in your hypothetical scenario, the game would have both audio tracks, so they could choose whichever they preferred.
Neither is anybody saying that the game would sell more poorly if it were dubbed, because again, that would be a ridiculous claim. The thing is, it isn't a matter of the game having worse sales; it's a matter of the game's sales not improving enough. It's a very simple cost-benefit analysis. The game gets certain sales numbers if it is released with only the Japanese audio. Adding English audio would cost the company money, something which they therefore would only be willing to do if they thought it would increase sales enough to offset the cost.
The simple fact of the matter is, that isn't likely to be the case. And granted, to the best of my knowledge, nobody here is actually a market analyst, or has knowledge of the details of this case, but that doesn't make the educated guess any less valid. The target demographic of these games is people that are fans of One Piece, and that pretty readily translates into people that are used to watching the Japanese. That's not to say that there aren't some that wouldn't prefer it in English, but from the company's point of view, that doesn't matter, since it likely wouldn't be a large enough deal to keep them from buying it in Japanese. Ultimately, the group of people that would buy it if it were dubbed, but not otherwise, is most likely extremely small, and therefore simply not worth catering to from an economic perspective.
