So...has Nippon Ichi ever said why they don't want Ragnarok in the west?

Nope, and NISA officials on the boards have said they won't be releasing that info saying it's a rather "damned if they do, damned if they don't" situation.

I'm going to add this here but please do not attack Mastiff for Ragnarok. The actual reasons as for why LP:R isn't getting an English release are still unknown, and many people have asked Mastiff and they apparently do not own the rights to the game anymore.

And anyway, attacking companies for this is in bad taste.

I wasn't intending to attack Mastiff, I was just pointing out that, last I had heard, they were the ones who owned the localization rights and were staying tight lipped about it.

Sorry that it came off as an attack.

Why are all the spoiler tags being removed?
07:43:05 PM Oct 24th 2010
Probably to conform to the Spoiler Policy.

La Pucelle might be an older game, but it's getting a remake. Removing spoilers from a game the current generation of gamers may not have played yet but will have an opportunity to play soon is a bad idea.

So far, there's no indication of there being a translation. In fact, given the Mastiff thing, it's highly unlikely at this time.

I'm not so sure about that. After all, the remake of Phantom Brave got localized. Even if it doesn't, there are always fan translations and a renewed interest in the original brought about by a re-release. It's still a bad idea however you look at it. At the very least, information about the ending, including the identities of Croix and Alloutte, should still be spoilered.

It's also a mistake to assume that no one who comes here will play the Japanese version - we have many tropers from Japan and many more who will import it.

Even if Ragnarok doesn't get translated in english, why does that suddenly mean that spoiler tags should be removed?

If the Zenon thing is still being spoiler tagged in Disgaea pages, even though N1 is pretty much spoiling everything about Zenon in D3, I think we can still keep the spoilers for LP.

Because there are a lot of people who believe in a "statute of limitations" on spoilers. Personally, I think that's bullshit - a spoiler is a spoiler regardless of how old the media in question is and we can't rely on people who come to a page of an older media having read/watched/played the media in question.

The entire point of having media pages is so that people can see what tropes are used in it. They're not exclusively for people familiar with the work. Quite a few people, myself included, visit media pages out of curiosity about the work in question, not because we're a fan.

Besides, this game has only been released in NA for 6 years and EU/AUS for 5. That's really not that old, as far as media or even games go.

EDIT: Additionally, there is precedent for releasing ports of NIS games published abroad by Atlus, so being published by Mastiff is really indicative of nothing. Considering that there are two planned sequels to this game, I don't think we can take for granted that there will never be a localization.

Well, I'm going to go ahead and put back the spoiler tags on the endings and Croix and Alouette spoilers.

I'm going to leave Overlord Prier as a non spoiler at this point though.

Wait, wait. Two planned sequels for this game? As in La Pucelle? Did I hear that right?

Sorry if its obvious and its something else, but I don't want to get my hopes up..

I gotta contest the claim that Overlord Prier is insane in her Disgaea Bonus Boss appearances. She barely even says anything half the time, and everything she does say falls in line with the hammy card carrying nature of the other Overlords.
09:10:06 PM Sep 20th 2010
Well in one appearance She actually was taken over by her super powered evil side, and could only fight until she was finally defeated. After that appearance she started talking in games released after it. The lot of it only really justifies the ending of La Pucelle Ragnarok, where Priere is a demon overlord.

Also I think the whole Prier becomes an overlord ending is already known by most of the fandom, as she appears in that form in all of her cameo appearances. In fact it's now more likely that people knew that Prier was an overlord, but didn't know how she became one.
