Persona 4 Arena's EU release misses 2012

However, the last XBL schedule suggested that the game would be coming to Games On Demand by the end of the year- with no comment about only being in certain territories. Make of that what you will.

The less games Zen United get to distribute the better.

Christ I completely forgot about this. At least the delay will give me time to watch the anime first.

What 'localization work' could be holding it back so much. They have already confirmed that they are not adding in any extra languages for europe. so how can it take so long when its going to be exactly the same as the american version?

Are they doing silly little changes like changing color to colour? But claiming this is taking them half a year?

Region locking coming back to bite them in the backside.

I hope this doesn't come back on us in the future however.

I can just imagine at some point a sales exec is looking at figures in his office, deciding that because they had no sales in Europe that he decines to release future games here.

Call me paranoid, but I hope Europe isn't kicked to the curb again, we've missed several great games over the past generations.. Earthbound, Super Mario RPG, Chronotrigger, Xenogears and Xenosaga 1 immediately come to mind.
