Ciel nosurge is a Playstation Vita exclusive prequel to Ar nosurge. Unfortunately, only the latter has seen a western English release for the Playstation Vita and the Playstation 3. This is a problem because Ciel nosurge's story and character development are almost pivotal to be able to really understand and appreciate Ar nosurge. Ciel nosurge is an enormous game with a large amount of text, so it's safe to assume that Koei Tecmo is reluctant to start work on such an ambitious project when there is no certainty that there is even a demand for the game in the first place.
Recently, however, the community manager of Koei Tecmo America was asked as to what would be the best way to show demand for Ciel nosurge. His reply was:
"#'s would help if the community could provide a petition or update with thousands of respondents it would make a case for it in the west.
Japan = Numbers as long as we can show the #'s it'll have more impact then just saying "the west has interest in this"
I'm only the community manager of KTA but i do what i can do.."
For this reason, I believe that Ciel nosurge does have a chance to come over if people show enough interest.

8/3/15: It should go without saying, but... share this with anyone that would be interested. I've seen plenty of people express interest in this game, but many aren't even aware of this petition's existence.
8/10/15: The signatures have definitely started to come in much quicker. At this rate a few thousand signatures seems to be possible. Even if we can't hit the 6,000 goal, even a few thousands would send a message of the intesrest for this title.
