As a follow-up to their original post on the Chain Chronicle Global Facebook page, goGame have now launched a petition to bring back Chain Chronicle in the West. Before signing the petition, fans are also asked to like goGames Facebook page.
Somewhat confusing is that the petition is directed at their own company goGame, as well as their parent company SEGA. It’s a curious situation and the question is exactly what goGame’s strategy is. This isn’t entirely unprecedented. SEGA themselves have done something similar in the past when they asked fans to Like & Share a photo on Facebook if they wanted to see Project DIVA F localized. The response from the community was said to have been a key point in getting a green-light for the project. This appears to be a similar attempt from goGame to show that there’s demand for Chain Chronicle to be revived in the West. The impression I’m getting is that goGame negotiated with SEGA (and perhaps Gumi) to allow them to create this campaign, hoping that it’s successful enough to get a green light. It’s not clear how many signatures goGame is hoping to get, but at the time of writing the petition is at 890 signatures.
