Previously we had reported on Freedom Wars getting a digital only release in European countries, getting quite a few anticipating fans upset.
Thankfully, Sony is listening to their fans, and due to the large outcry for a retail release, they’ve confirmed that Freedom Wars is getting a retail release in various EU countries after all:
As many of you are aware, earlier this month we announced that Japan Studio’s forthcoming action RPG Freedom Wars would be a digital-only release when it arrives here in the SCEE region later this year. Since then you’ve let us know here on PlayStation Blog, on forums and on social media that you really wanted to see a full title card release for the game. And we’ve been listening. Duly, today I’m happy to confirm that Freedom Wars will now be made available as a full physical edition as well as a digital release, from day one.
Thanks for your feedback, and look out for more news on the game as launch approaches – this one is well worth the wait.
So that’s some pretty amazing news for our European readers and fans! Now let’s try to ensure that Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines gets a retail release, because it’s already seemingly a digital only launch in EU regions as well.
