Namco Bandai has just announced the release timeframe for the North American edition of Ni no Kuni, and it appears fans in the states will have access to the game earlier than Europe.
Yay! Ni No Kuni looks amazing. Can't wait to play it.
What happened to the Q1 2012 date, now i have to wait until winter :(
Tales of Graces F happened.
I know right. I was really hoping that the game would have released by now. By winter of this year I may have spent all I'm willing to spend on games. A lot of good titles release in the fall.
F**k Namco, Europe the fifth wheel yet another time...
I think it was Level-5's call regarding the localization for other EU languages.
WTF is the point in that? Why should I in an English speaking country have to wait longer to get a game which will already have been localised for the English language.
I understand and agree. Xenoblade and Last Story go to Europe but not N.A. I would have been happy with just English (US or UK) sub-titles. Well, at least Xenoblade will be coming soon.
it probably has to do with the law, international trade agreements, and gov permits. but I hear you..it sucks, in an ideal world you should be able to get it at the same time.
Looks like i'll be making my first import ;)
Nothing new here.. We always get the shaft here in Europe... :S which is something I don't understand as Europe is a bigger territory for playstation than the USA now.
So where are all the people saying it would come in 2013 for the US?
How am I not surprised? We'll probably get the Rapture after everyone else too. -_-
Honestly....why the hell is the UK still a part of the PAL region. We're an english speaking country, we shouldn't have to suffer because of France, Germany, Spain etc. Seriously I hate how we get the short end of the stick, it makes me laugh though that the odd time we get a better, lets say, Collectors edition of a game, people from America moan on thats it's unfair......well trying living here then, then you'll know the meaning of the word unfair. PSN prices, release dates, DLC release dates, PS1 classics and shortly I'm guessing PS2 classics, DLC prices...I could go on
So is Ireland.
PAL is an analogue TV system, you know.... we're part of the PAL region because we use PAL...
this has been going on for years, nothing new about it. now I wish they would release the ds version in English.
This game... will consume MY LIFE! Also, announce a collector's edition!
What happened to simultaneous Q1 2012 release, Namco? :/
Well, that's good for my wallet cause in the next months there's a lot of great game i want to buy. Graces f, NG 3, Journey, Bioshock Infinite, etc. Plus, i had some back catalog that i must buy too. Some space for my wallet is much appreciated ;)
