Starting this Friday, February 1, PS Vita gamers in seven Asian territories will be able to download from the PlayStation store an English game client for the Sega’s free-to-play online title Samurai & Dragons, the games publisher announced yesterday at a fan meeting event in Tokyo.
Previously the free-to-play title’s release date was said to be sometime in Spring 2013. The seven Asian territories are Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, and Malaysia.
The February 1 Asian launch date for the English version of the game will coincide with the start of Samurai & Dragon‘s “third season” cycle in Japan, which will also see the release of the Segakko 13: Yume Kanaeshi Mono card pack in that region. Currently there is no information on if the same pack will be offered to English version players on day one.
