Soul Nomad & The World Eaters PAL

Postby BigDon » Fri Aug 27, 2010 1:15 pm

Do all european releases of Soul Nomad & The World Eaters have an italian box and manual?

I live in the UK, I wondered if there was a UK PAL release in English?

Same thing when I got Ar Tonlico.

Thanks

Since I'm not sure yuki-chan answerd the whole question...
No - at least my version has proper manual and box texts, in the right language.
(even talking about it makes me wanna play it, or Ogre Battle)

No. There are proper English versions.
Though I am sure your actual game is in English right?

But Ar Tonelico, because 505 Games are RUBBISH, only got released in Italy.
I had to import a copy from France, cause I just couldn't find it anywhere else. Manual, and text on the box is in Italian.
I REALLY do not understand the pathetic publishing of Ar Tonelico. The Games is entirely in English, and only in English. At least release it in the UK if you are going to release it in Europe.

But Soul Nomad got proper distribution. So we have the correct box art/manuals.
I don't think there's anything explained in the manual that is not explained in the game anyway.

I wholeheartedly agree that 505 Games are rubbish.

I´ve never experienced a publisher with such bizarre distribution.

However: Ar Tonelico was not only released in Italy. I can tell, because I have a French edition right here. And actually, I believe that it is likely there is an version with english box text out there too.

Other RPGs by 505 did have a UK-release at least. Magna Carta, Stella Deus, Wild ARMs 4, Wild ARMs 5...

The three places that to my knowledge always get releases by 505 are Italy (their home), France, and the UK.

Problem is... sometimes one language version is nearly impossible to get. I give you one example: Wild ARMs 5. There definitively is a version with English box from 505, but it is ultr@ r@re. When the game was released after a long delay with no updates on release dates or anything, the UK-version was distributed so scarcely that most shops never got a copy, and some shops got as few as one (!) copy.

The print run must have been extremely small, but it exists. I could imagine the same thing for Ar Tonelico.


Sadly, 505 does not answer if you use their contact form for any question. I´d have liked some more in-depth information on that myself.

Super late reply, GO!
(not like much goes on in this forum)

Sorry yeah, I know Ar Tonelico was released in France aswell.
There was NO English release however, at all. It simply does not exist.
Which makes it even rarer than WA5 I guess :v
