God of War III confirmed for March 25 in Japan

Thursday, 7th January 2010 13:52 GMT By Johnny Cullen


Sony Computer Entertainment Japan has confirmed that God of War III will release in the country on March 25.

The game will be released separately as well as being bundled in the God of War Trillogy edition, consisting of GoW III and the God of War Collection, which Capcom and not Sony is publishing.

So far, all that has been confirmed for a release in Europe and the US is spring 2010.

There is no confirmation yet, though, on the date that was given to Gran Turismo 5 by main Japanese retailers, which is also the same date GoW III goes on sale, March 25.

SCEJ also confirmed a re-print of Shadow of the Colossus will be released on February 4 for ¥1,800.

We’ll email SCEE about a European date for GoW III, but word to the wise: don’t hold your breath.

Thanks, Siliconera.

    “Has the EU GoW Ultimate edition been spotted for pre-order yet?”

    I haven’t seen it yet and I still have no idea how much it costs :(

    If it is above £80 then I ain’t touching it.

    If gamestation stocks it then I MIGHT get it cheaper cos I have a student discount but man :(

    This might just tempt me to getting the AVP Hunter Edition >_>

    Here’s what their response will be…

    “We expect consumers to think to themselves ‘I will work more hours to buy one’. We want people to feel that they want it, irrespective of anything else”

    Can’t you just buy the discs without the ridiculous box and all the extraneous shit?

    I would do that but isn’t GOW collection only available in this set? O_o

    Anyone know if GOW collection is being released as a standalone?

    You’d have to import the remastered games, they’re only going to be available in that crazy edition.

    That’s a lot of money….

    Surely it’s one of those mistakes where you can buy something for way cheap anyway?

    Anyway, Poseidon looks great, but I don’t really care otherwise :D

    I definately am not there with God of War.

    Depends if it’s Game exclusive or not. The price is probably right… apparently in Sweden it’s going to be selling for the equivalent of £179.

    Blerk – I asked SCEE as well if they’re going to do a mini bundle with just the games.

    Again, if I hear anything, I’ll let you know.

    Well, I placed my pre-order; Thanks AHA-Lambda – I think ;)

    Psycho, it will be stupid of Sony to make the remastered versions only available through this package, don’t you think?

    /When you’re not part of the solution, blah blah blah…
    Pathetic, I know…

    That’s what they said… don’t ask me.

    Maybe they’ll change their mind if nutters with more money than sense don’t order the mental edition… :P
