Question about PS3 Japanese games

by wclem Fri Aug 15, 2014 4:07 pm

I grabbed RE4/Code Veronica physical release from Japan. It did not get a physical here on PS3 as far as I know.

I was wondering: Are there any other "playable" games that got a physical release in another area that did not get a physical here.

The only other I know of is Agarest War Zero got a European release in physical form. Any help on this would be great, thanks.

Siren: New translation and Saint Seiya are two that I know of that had a physical release is Asia and Europe.

Quite a few big American PSN only games had a physical release in either Europe or Asia.

Vampire Resurrection got a Japanese physical release while it was only downloadable here in the states. Its region free and only about $20 shipped on eBay here. I was excited to find and purchase it myself a few weeks back.

Is the PS3 RE4/RE:CV game translated in english at all?

If its all in Japanese I wouldn't be able to follow the story as I've never completed the games before (only played both part of the way through and dont remember the story line). If for some reason it has English options or subtitles it would be worth considering getting though.

That's the beauty of capcom fighting games, you can get the import copy and you won't be missing out on much at all. For Vampire Resurrection even the menus are in English so its really easy to enjoy.
