An Open Letter to Square Enix

Dear Square Enix,

         As a fan of your company since 1999, I would like a word with you. There are many games that you created that you haven't released in North America, and I wonder why. Games like Blood of Bahamut, Final Fantasy Type-0, and Nanashi no Game are high risk projects for you and I understand that. This is one of the many reason digital distribution has become more popular, one thing you can do is release these games state-side via digital download only, another cost cutting measure will be only release the game subtitled without English voiceovers. Square Enix your fans can read, they understand the basic concept for any RPG is that reading is needed to enjoy the story. Square Enix releasing games to North America via committe and only looking at profit margin will hurt your goodwill towards your fanbase and with this ends creativity. Creativity is the heart and soul of the video game industry and without it Square Enix would have ever existed.
