    I don't know if Stranger of Sword City will ever be released in English (hoping for the fan translation project), but Elminage Gothic is coming fully in English to Steam in late Summer.

    Seriously... these days they are making sprite-only games without even animation...
    W6 had animation.. how many years ago?
    Not that I mind it much, but it is just lazy.

    Stranger of Sword City is releasing in Spring 2016, NIS America is localizing it. Looks like it's coming out for the VITA : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=616fLcWExtY

    I haven't tried Elminage Gothic but it looks like it's on Steam now.

    I personally enjoyed Stranger of Sword City. It's more akin to Wizardry 1-3 or 5, but without the stupid RNG for stat increases aside from the initial starting roll, and the classes seem more unique (i.e. Fighter has its own abilities and niche rather than being an inferior Samurai or Lord/Knight, nor is there a bishop class that obsoletes the Cleric or Wizard), plus a lot more tactical options and character development choices over the original Wizardry series.
