Rune Factory 4 EU release cancelled
MarvelousAQL’s statement reads as follows;
“We regret to inform you that the European release of Rune Factory 4 for Nintendo 3DS has been cancelled.
While MarvelousAQL has made every effort to secure the title’s release for this territory, it is, unfortunately, not possible to do so at this time.
MAQL and MAQL Europe would like to thank everyone for their support and enthusiasm for their European releases. Please look forward to announcements on new MAQL titles over the coming months.”
Its times like this when the 3DS region lock really does haunt it somewhat. Rune Factory 4 has been getting played by our american cousins for the past few months since release last year, which will no doubt frustrate fans in the EU knowing that an already english-translated version of the title is available but not playable due to the 3DS region lock. This is all that the statement released has noted, so hopefully more news will come to the fore on why this has happened as the game was due for release here with a penned date of Q1 2014 (Probably has something to do with the closure of developer Neverland Co) Were you looking forward to the release?
