Leah posted a article in Industry NewsLevel-5 recently opened their own North American office sometime last year, and they're already getting to work on localizing their first big project – Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch for the PlayStation 3 (which will be published by Namco Bandai). Level-5 International America also appears to be working on bringing the games that are part of Guild 01 over here. Although they've not announced anything officially yet, Liberation Maiden and Crimson Shroud have had trademarks filed and game ratings pop up for the U.S. It seems, though, that Level-5's CEO, Akihiro Hino, has bigger hopes in mind for Level-5 International America other than localization work. Here's what he told Siliconera when asked what else the company could be doing: "Our U.S. office mainly works to efficiently release the Japanese titles that Level-5 has created overseas and they are involved in production and distribution in the overseas territories. With Ni no Kuni, they are helping bring it to the overseas markets and potentially with other titles. In the future, we would potentially like to develop title overseas where Level-5 International America is taking the lead on developing for the overseas market." What are your thoughts on Level-5 International America developing their own games?
