    Square Enix why must you screw over EU time and time again?
    I wanna buy your games, but I starting to feel like US is getting the better deals

      They may be getting a physical release, but it’s online order only and being handled by Digital River – who are horrendous.

  • Derpazu

    Did not expect so many big name voice actors. Very nice.

    Shame about the release date and digital only though…:(

  • crimsonidol

    Yeah, finally a release-date for europe. I’m going to pre-order it now at Ama…
    WAIT; it’s digital only. :(

  • BizarreJelly

    Get hype get hype get hype. Sounds like Tara Platt is doing Zero, good choice.

    Very awesome game, glad it’s getting localized

    Square does not want to risk sell in physical format on a continent who prefer FIFA and CoD.

    • Nightcore34

      Not everyone does, I will admit many people do but some are actually going off COD

  • Hatsuaki

    Well, could be a physical release but I’m definitely grabbing it now!

    While it’s a shame to not have the physical disc, it’s definitely better than not having a chance to play it(ex. Rune Factory 4 and yes, I’m still salty about it)…

    for some reason the roles became reverse.

    EU used to get exclusive Collector’s edition of games like The Third Birthday, Dissidia, Tactics Ogre, Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep and such.

    what the hell happened? did the staff switched up or something!?!

    • artemisthemp

      Square Enix, Namco Bandai and Sega just decided that EU doesn’t pay enough (even though we pay 33% more than US) and therefor shall be treated as Shit.

      Good thing their still is decent companies like Tecmo Koei

      • PrinceHeir

        that sucks :

  • mojavan

    It may be annoying with no physical EU-release, but honestly.. wouldn’t you all just buy the imported US-version right off their earlier release-date anyway? A few years ago I would have agreed with you, but since I’ve found myself buying the imported physical copies over and over this whole issue definitely has lost its edge.

    PS3 is region-free, remember?

    • Nightcore34

      Hmm, true, what websites do you buy from cause as of now I expect no physical copies of games from square to hit Europe ever.

      • mojavan

        I live in Sweden and has bought imported titles from Amazon UK, webhallen.com and a few others. They’re not really hard to find. Try using prisjakt.nu or pricerunner. Should pop up a few alternatives regardless of where you are I think. GL. :)

        • Nightcore34

          Hmm, I usually go to play.com so I’ve never really used other websites thanks.

  • Nightcore34

    Because it’s digital only I hope it’s not big I kinda want to play it when I buy it not wait ages to download it. Looking at NI no kuni.

    Tbh.. i dont mind it being digital only. cause the PSN price is already cheaper then it would sell for in stores so yeah. .saving money
