Black Rock Shooter Not Heading West

According to a tweet I just came across, NIS America has confirmed it won't be releasing Black Rock Shooter, or any other PSP titles in America. The awesome looking game is due to hit Japan on 25 August and comes with a great figurine bundle which it looks like I'll have to order now.

I had an email from NIS a while back saying "we don't have any information regarding ImageEpoch titles…
We do not have a project up and running together, so our contacts with them are limited." so hopes were pretty stretched back then, but it looks like any lingering ones have now gone.

Wonder if Ghostlight (who bring Japanese titles like Aedis Eclipse over) or someone else is likely to pick it up, as BRS looks like a game that doesn't need a great effort in the way of translation.
