DUO Compatibility...  
The long awaited news is finaly here; after many months of waiting and wondering Play-Asia have revealed the console compatibility.. and sadly (like many of us predicted) it is only playable in NTSC-J territories.

I'm dissapointed, but yet again I expected this to happen. So I guess my copy will have to remain as a collectors item once it arrives.

I'm seriously considering starting a petition. Perhaps we can hunt around, contact a few publishers who are keen on localising niche Japanese games like this (X-Seed??) and see if we can single handedly bring DUO over to western shores. I like the thought of a fandom being responsible for something like that! Stay tuned, lets make history happen!

Sigh, so it's confirmed. :( I've been toying with the idea of a Japanese 360 these last few days, but you know what, I'd rather do something to bring the game here. X-SEED seems like our only hope at this point, so we could start a petition to them?

XSEED will always personally respond if you ask if it's possible to localize a game. You might want to see if Ubisoft is still willing to pick up the sequel, too.

I could have told you guys it wouldn't be region-free when I emailed G.Rev about it last month :(

rar, I wouldn't rule out companies like Atlus and Aksys either! Particularly Aksys which seems to have a legitimate interest in both fighting games, AND bringing over shmups to North America >w<' Seriously though I'm with you guys my heart sunk when it was finally confirmed as regionally locked T_T'

rar, that totally reminds me, anyone here who does want to play some Senko matches, give me a heads up, my gamertag is "Codemakura"! I'm seriously looking for some regulars I might be able to play -- ever since DUO, online has been absolutely dead (understandably too, if I could play DUO, I would be too >w<).

A word of advise.
Go back and replay Boarder Down at your spare time.
It'll be rewarding once you play DUO.
