[QUOTE] They announced it for the US? When did that happen? All I've heard is a Euro release date. Kyle Hyde and the Secret of the Missing American Release. I have this fantasy where even if it isn't released internationally, the brilliant translator of the original would go renegade and translate it anyway. I read a bit of the original's English script and I was like...[URL=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OT4B-NJUcZE]woah[/URL]. Having played through Hotel Dusk, I'm actually interested in knowing how the English script stacks up to the Japanese one. The English one is quite fantastic in how it conveys that noir feeling, and ensures that all the characters have a unique voice that is not excessively caricatured. Sometimes I wondered if the writer of the localized version wanted to drift towards a more pulp or potboiler feel, but who cares; it was great. I just hope that the sequel doesn't have something like that damned newspaper that blew everything for you in advance. [/QUOTE] I heard this time the localized version will try to add some spice to many dull aspects of the original Japanese text. To what extent they would succeed remains to be seen, but it sure would be nice to get a message other than a mere "oh, it's a table" the 345th time you enter somebody's apartment and click to check on a desk. Having already played the JP version I can say that, story-wise, the game holds its own quite well and is a more than worthy sequel to the original Hotel Dusk. I'd say the artwork is even more gorgeous. Oh, and the little novel thing is a nice touch, it also gives you some interesting inputs about our lovable Kyle Hyde's background beyond what we can glimpse on the games. A well crafted piece of work indeed. It shows it has been done with a good deal of love and care.
