    I guess Europe wont be getting a physical release for Muramasa Rebirth as well. I’m getting kinda sick of this bullshit.

    @2 Physical distribution isn’t cheap, and a lot of stores don’t even bother stocking these sort of niche titles due to a lack of preorders, which is how they gauge consumer interest.

    If you want to blame anyone, blame the retailers.

    10 years ago you’d have to mod your devices and pay expensive import prices to have any chance of playing these kinds of games. At least with a digital release the option is there to actually get it.

    @3 If a small publisher NISA can release physical releases of their niche games in Europe that excuse does not really fly.

    @4 The likes of NISA and Atlus have a tonne of money, despite their niche in the west. They’re pretty much the biggest sellers in their respective markers. NISA makes tens of millions. They can afford to get their stuff out there.

    The companies involved in this game are fairly small, and they’ve obviously done the maths and realised that physical distribution would cut into potential profits significantly enough to not be worth the risk.

    My local stores barely even give half a shelf to the Vita. Its an obscure RPG, and the market for that is even smaller in Europe than in the US. If nowhere is going to stock it, what’s the point?

    Import it if its that big a deal. Good lord.

    @5 Must be nice to live in a place that gets all the physical releases and collector editions and not get shafted again and again and than say “big deal” to those who do in Europe.

    And i highly doubt NISA has a tonne of money. NIS itself was doing pretty poorly a few years ago and losing GUST to Tecmo-Koei must have stung for NISA. BTW Atlus never published anything in Europe themselves.

    Squeenix on the other hand has the money and distribution channels in Europe and yet shafts us anyway with Drakengard 3 while the US gets a physical release.

    Also nobody cares about brick and mortar stores when the games are cheaper on Amazon and the like over here.

    @6 I’m European. I get “shafted” all the time. I just don’t feel like some business logistics and missing out on a game or two in my particular region are worth getting upset about, especially with so many alternatives available to me.

    Square obviously doesn’t have a valid excuse, considering their size. But this particular title is as niche as it gets, and you can easily import a physical copy of the game from Amazon if its that important to you. It’s not like the Vita is region locked.

    @7 My mistake than sorry.
    If you like to collect console games like me it is a big deal. And with the single account system on the Vita importing is a real hassle considering the upcoming DLC for Muramasa is supposed to be the big draw of this rerelease.
    Also importing is expensive. Last time i imported 3 games for the Vita the goddamn tax alone was nearly 50 Euro’s.

    As for Drakengard 3. I cant even import that one (and believe me i want to) since its exclusive to Squeenix’s store and they wont ship overseas.
