Xseed has told online gaming publication Siliconera that the company is trying to release Rune Factory 4 in Europe. The good news is the game will be coming, but it will be a digital only release. News emerged yesterday that the game was coming to Europe when a listing for Rune Factory 4 was found on the USK ratings board. Here’s what Xseed’s Executive VP, Ken Berry, had to say about the situation.
“The situation is that we know the Rune Factory 4 fans in Europe have suffered enough with one cancellation already,, so we didn’t want to announce anything until the game passed [Nintendo of Europe] certification and we were sure its digital-only eShop release was imminent since we are using a different programming house to try to pick up where the original dev team left off.”
“Though I can’t disclose which development house is handling the PAL localization programming duties for us, I can say that it’s been in the works for months already and we hope to start the master submission process with NOE within the next couple weeks.”
