IA/VT Colorful, an upcoming Vocaloid rhythm game for PS Vita, won’t be released in the west, producer Kenichiro Takaki told Siliconera.
“If it were possible, I’d love to bring it over, but there are a lot of difficulties involved in that process. Now, that said, there’s no reason why you can’t import it,” Takaki told Siliconera. “Since it’s a music title, and since music is arguably one of the most protected media types artists have, that just means more doors to knock on and more approvals to get. It’s far more difficult than a Senran Kagura title.”
Takaki responded, “Yes, I believe that that’s the case.” when asked if players outside of Japan will need to import the game.
IA/VT Colorful is due out for PS Vita on July 30 in Japan.
