NIS America Announces Black Rock Shooter Slated For April 23
After all of that time of silence, finally an answer. [UPDATE: Two trailers added!]
04.05.13 - 4:49 PM

Way back in August of 2011, NIS America announced the localization of Black Rock Shooter, an Imageepoch RPG for the PlayStation Portable. I'll be honest - I thought the project was canned after we hadn't heard about it for so long.

However, that is not the case! NIS America has announced that the title will hit PlayStation Network on April 23 in the USA, and the following day in Europe. While no price point or information on PlayStation Vita compatibility was listed on NIS America's press release, we have reached out to them for additional information on these points.

However, there is one odd piece of information hidden in the press release: Black Rock Shooter will not be released in Canada or Mexico. From NIS: This title will be available for download in the following countries on PSN: United States, United Kingdom, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Luxemburg, Holland, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Latvia,Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Romania, and Bulgaria. It will unfortunately not be available in Canada, Mexico, and certain European countries.
