Rune Factory 4′s European release cancelledWritten by: / / 1 Comment
3DS fans who were eagerly anticipating the launch of Rune Factory 4 in PAL territories will be disappointed to learn that this quirky RPG will no longer be released in the region. Publisher Marvelous AQL issued the following statement regarding the cancellation:
“We regret to inform you that the European release of Rune Factory 4 for Nintendo 3DS has been cancelled.
“While Marvelous AQL has made every effort to secure the title’s release for this territory, it is, unfortunately, not possible to do so at this time. MAQL and MAQL Europe would like to thank everyone for their support and enthusiasm for their European releases. Please look forward to announcements on new MAQL titles over the coming months.”
This cancellation follows Rune Factory 4′s developer Neverland Co. announcing that it would file for bankruptcy and cease operations this past November, citing “changes in the business environment”.
Rune Factory 4 was localised into English and released in North America last October so if you’re really desperate to play it you can always import a US 3DS along with a copy of the game.
