MAGES Producer Comments on Why Chaos;HEAd Hasn’t Been Localized in the West

With the announcement that Robotics;Notes Elite and Robotics;Notes DaSH will be coming west later this year. Many Science Adventure fans are curious to know about the releases of Chaos;HEAd in the west.

MAGES producer Tatsuya Matsubara told Crunchyroll in an interview, “Chaos;HEAd was the first entry in the series and because of this we had very little experience with creating the game’s engine when we made it. As a result, it is vastly different from the game engine we use now, which is one of the reasons making a port for this title has been difficult. That being said, it is the first entry to the Science Adventure series, and it is near and dear to our hearts, so we are always thinking about how we wish for everyone to play this title. ”

It seems the team is looking for a way to bring the title west, which is good for them. Chaos;HEAd was originally released on PC in 2008 until it was ported to Xbox 360 as Chaos;Head Noah, which led to multiple ports to various consoles and handhelds over the years including PlayStation Vita.

The original Robotics;Notes game was originally released by 5pb. in Japan on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2012. A couple of years later, an enhanced version titled Robotics;Notes Elite was released for PlayStation Vita in 2014, and for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 in 2019. Soon, players in the west will have a chance to experience the visual novel for themselves.

Robotics;Notes DaSH is the sequel of Robotics;Notes, and was released on January 31, 2019, in Japan for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.

Notes Elite & Dash Double Pack coming to PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC on October 13.
