We’ve already covered the Japanese release of Katsuhiro Otomo’s Short Peace Project on PlayStation 3 few weeks ago. Usually this is something that never make it out of Japan, but incredibly enough, today we’re here to report you that Namco Bandai has announced a localized release for the US.
Capcom’s amazing remake of evergreen classic Duck Tales, after its debut this year as a digital download, finally gets a disc-based retail version. Bless those bagpipes, fans of physical media! DuckTales: Remastered will be getting a disc and box on store shelves across North America starting November 12th. Available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U at $19.99.
Yes, everything’s really cool, but what about us? What about Europe? Well, we asked Capcom UK and this was the answer.
@ThatDamnPixel We’re currently discussing opportunities for a physical release in Europe. At this stage nothing has been decided”

Let’s hope Europeans, let’s hope. Stay tuned!
The 3DS is getting a lot of attentions lately, not just for Nintendo games, but also for licensed titles. So be happy all you pirates wanna-be, because we got quite a lot of good news for you!
Starting from the already confirmed also for North America and Europe One Piece Romance Dawn, that should be available later this year. Here’s the trailer.
Then we got the just announced One Piece Unlimited World Red, covering the very last part of the anime/manga.
Unfortunately this second game is not yet confirmed for an outside-Japan release, but today Nintendo and Namco Banday have announced a super hot double 3DS LL (the name of the Japanese 3DS XL) limited edition for the game. Here the pictures.
As you can see from the last picture this game, and the two special 3DS, will be available in Japan from November 21st at the price of 25.980 yen (roughtly £220).
Let’s see if we’ll be lucky enough to get them too here.
Phantasy Star Online 2 was expected for an “early 2013” release in the west, as long the game is available in Japan since last July. But it’s almost April and still no game. So yesterday a Sega Of America spokesman stated:
“Originally slated for an early 2013 launch, Sega can officially confirm that PS02 has been delayed. We don’t have any specifics but will update everyone as soon as there are more details to share.”
It seems that the delay is due to localization issues, but that’s just a rumor. Said so, it looks like we have to wait a bit longer before be able to play this awesome J-RPG in a non-Japanese language, but if you’re so impatient you can always use the free-to-play japanese version.
No, it’s not a new Space Invaders game coming to your iPad or something, The Space Invaders: In Search of Lost Time is a feature-length documentary film about classic arcade game collecting. It is the story of classic obsession, the second life of games in basements and garages across the US.
The Space Invaders: In Search of Lost Time will take you inside America’s hidden game rooms and into the hearts and minds of those who have made it their mission to enthusiastically preserve these important cultural touchstones.
Why? Because by 1985, video arcades revenue had fallen 97%, so they began to disappear worldwide (apart from Japan, as we said here) and most of the old games were converted or destroyed. A few, packed into warehouses, largely forgotten for another decade.
This documentary seems to be a very good chance to undust some masterpieces from the golden age of arcades, and meet the most hardcore coin-op experts and collectors out there.
The full-lenght film, directed by Jeff Von Ward and featuring lots of die-hard collectors (take a look at them here), should be out around next April and we’re really looking forward to watch it. But for now just enjoy the trailer and check out its website.
