A radio broadcast was uploaded today celebrating OZMAFIA!!'s first anniversary. During this broadcast, they officially announced that an English localization is currently in production. The staff blog was also updated with a message to the English fans:
Dear our English-speaking friends and overseas otome game users,
Thank you for your many inquiries and requests.
We have finally decided to sell a localized version of "OZMAFIA!!".
We are now hard at work making an English version.
Please await further messages for details
such as method and time of sale.
Thank you for your message to us.
I could not reply to every one. sorry.
I worried a lot about whether to make a localized version.
This is because I have repeatedly seen how our data is used publicly in unbelievable ways, such as illegal uploads, in illustrations or in music.
However, I have also seen people who censure illegal uploads raise their voices in order to stop this practice.
It is precisely this what gave me the push that I needed to make this localized version.
Thank you to all of you who believed in my words and waited for a long time.
I hope you will be pleased with this news!
