Xenosaga fans should bug Namco Bandai, says Sony rep

Sony has directed Xenosaga fans clamouring for HD re-releases of the classic PS2 RPGs to turn their attention to publisher Namco Bandai.

Responding to a comment on the PS Blog, community manager Morgan Haro reminded fans that publishers are responsible for deciding whether to bring a game to the PlayStation 3’s HD remaster line.

“Make your voice heard on the Namco Bandai forums to have the best possible chance to see this through,” he said, adding a word of caution:

“They’d need to sign off on it, but there are technical considerations as well (like will it work with the PS3 firmware to emulate this PS2 title).”

A couple of threads have already appeared on Namco Bandai’s forum.

Although it has a patchy history of localisation, the Japanese publisher has shown itself to be responsive to fan demands in the past, as when it agreed to fund a port of Dark Souls.
