God of War: Ascension finally has a release date! You can pick it up for the PS3 on March 12, 2013 in North America, with the European Union, Australia/New Zealand, and United Kingdom/Ireland receiving the game on the 13, 14, and 15 of March 2013, respectively.
Also with the news of the release date comes word of two special editions: the Special Edition and the Collector’s Edition!
The Special Edition comes with a steel book game case, official digital soundtrack, PS3 dynamic theme and avatars, and a double XP for the new multiplayer mode! The Collector’s Edition comes with everything found in the Special Edition, but also includes an 8″ Kratos figure and a DLC pass to unlock all future DLC. Prices are to be announced.
So, now that Hyrule Historia is officially getting localized outside of Japan, the anticipation has been rising and pre-orders have shot through the roof!
If you pre-order from Amazon, though, you’ll get a pretty good deal: $20.99 will land you a copy, which is about 40% off of the MSRP! As of now, it’s the bestselling book on Amazon, so grab yours while it lasts!
That was fast! Just a few hours ago as of this writing, we told you that a leak had supposedly announced an iOS port of The World Ends with You, previously exclusive to the Nintendo DS. Though the gameplay mechanics are going to be quite hard to conceptualize (the original game utilized both screens for multitasking gameplay), it seems as if there could be more than one announcement imminent in the countdown!
The news comes from a translator who has worked on The World Ends with You, Kingdom Hearts, and even Monster Hunter, who tweeted:
Before everyone decides the #twewy countdown is over, they might want to wait for the countdown to be over. #moredripthanleak
There could be hope for a new sequel yet…
