NCsoft’s confirmed that Korean MMO Aion will launch in the US and Europe this autumn.

The game was supposed to release at the end of last year, but localization caused the delay, apparently.

“The localization effort is enormous, with a vast amount of content. Aion is not simply being translated, a team of dedicated content writers are re-creating the written dialogue and content to provide AAA quality and to ensure that it is culturally relevant for our audience. We are going to do this launch ‘right’ rather than fast,” executive producer Lance Stites said in an open letter on the game’s site.

The fantasy MMO’s been a smash in its native Korea, so definitely one to watch.
