Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love Pushed Back a WeekBonus items are still cool, and prices are decent.03.02.10 - 7:07 PM
NIS America just announced that they have pushed back the release of Sakura Wars: So Long, My Love
from March 23rd, 2010 to March 30th, 2010.
This delay applies to both the Wii and PS2 versions.
A quick reminder about the version differences:
The Wii version of the game will only be shipped as a "regular edition." No Japanese voicing option, no artbook, just the game. The Wii version will retail for (updated) $29.99. Note that Wii owners who would also like to have the artbook can preorder the "Unforgettable Memories" Wii version at the RosenQueen Store for $39.99 to receive the standard game as well as the artbook.
The PlayStation 2 version will come default, from online shops such as RosenQueen and brick-and-mortar stores, as a limited edition package. It will include the aforementioned artbook, a poster, a special outer case, and a second dual-layered DVD to play the game with Japanese voice instead of the default English. Suggested MSRP hasn't been announced, but RosenQueen is selling this special collection for $49.99.
Expect a review of the PlayStation 2 version on or before its March 30th release date, with a detailed review of the differences in the Wii version to follow shortly thereafter.
Also, on a personal note, mine eyes have seen the glory of the now thrice-mentioned artbook. It is beautiful, and it's about 50 pages.
