Natsume President Comments On The Status Of Medabots In The West

14 03 2015

Speaking to niche video game website Siliconera, Natsume Inc. President and CEO Hiro Maekawa discussed the status of the Medarot franchise in the west:

“At this point, we do not have a concrete plan for future Medabots titles, but we are carefully listening to fans voices and we know the team over there and would love the opportunity to bring a new Medabots game to the U.S. one day. Once again we have spent time, money, and love on that franchise, and we want to see it move forward just as much as our fans do,” Maekawa explains. “I know this isn’t the answer Medabots fans wanted, but stay tuned, because there will be some Medabots news in 2015. Keep an eye out!”

As he confirms there are no plans for new Medabots releases in North America, one must imagine the teased 2015 news refers to older games. Both of the localized Gameboy Advance titles, Medabots AX and Medabots: An RPG Adventure, received new ratings in Australia last year – a sure sign both are headed to the Nintendo Virtual Console for Wii U.
