BERSERK petition to reformat and release Berserk PS2 game to US
Created by Patrick Solheid on April 10th, 2005 at 4:55 pm AST

This is a petition for High Moon Studios (previously Sammy Studios during the production of the PS2 game Berserk) to translate and reformat the PS2 game Berserk and then sell to US consumers. This game was released in Japan on October 7, 2004 with extremely good sales. Since then, High Moon Studios/Sammy Studios has been sitting on this game, refusing to translate, reformat, subtitle (or dubb if necessary) and sell it in the US.

The Berserk comic book and animated series (which the PS2 game follows), is an epic story, which can only be described as Shakespearian. The series takes place in a medieval setting and follows two individuals: Griffith; the charismatic leader of the Band of the Hawk, and Guts; A swordsman of incredible skills, who joins the Hawks, but later seeks revenge against Griffith due to his betrayal. The game takes place after the animated series "Berserk" and follows the story almost exactly as in the comic book, which is at volume 30 and still being made to this very day.

A previous game "Sword of the Berserk: Guts' Rage" was made for the Dreamcast, but made poor sales due to the fact it was made for dreamcast and gameplay was buggy. Nevertheless, it still had decent reviews and was an overall good game.

The new Berserk game for the PS2 has shown itself to be nothing but the epitome of excellence. I ask anyone and everyone who has seen the series, read the comic books or is even remotely interested in a great action game with an incredible story to sign this petition. Do not let this game slip through the cracks. It's all up to us now. Let's make them give us this game.

The DC version full of bugs? Plz point me at one, for I haven't met any. And it's a great game, very cinematic, it was more cutscene than gameplay, but it didn't matter. I'll sign it for the sake of the series :)

And 'better petition'? Better than what? :rolleyes:

Alright :)

Anyway, some friendly advice though: The petition aims for 2000 signatures. Online signatures from ppl of who we don't even know they are loyal fans or anything. Someone could sign using 10 different names. And 2000 doesn't seem like a large number to me when it's a PS2 game.
Signing your own petition on a printed paper, and sending it to the company should work better at least.
