News: Virtual On Force is region free

In the latest column it appears that not only will Virtual On Force be localised into English on the Japanese and Asian versions (presumably triggered by your console’s system language settings) but also that it will be entirely region free as well. Whilst there is still no word on an official Western release, this does allow for importers to buy the game without fear of it not working on their 360 (meaning you can buy it here if you want to). This was done intentionally as well it seems, as a sort of thank you to the Western fanbase. In addition to this good news, the column also lays out all 32 of the game’s achievements too.

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO (preorders)

[…] to a post on Virtual On Force’s official blog, translated by Mecha Damashii, the game will be localised in the English language when it is released this month in Japan and […]

Now I have great regret for not getting the limited version with the perv mode for Fei Yen ;_;

That’s awesome news. The localization is a nice touch, especially for the online part. They should have announced this sooner, though, since a lot more people probably would have pre-ordered.

[…] updated their information yet. It's in Japanese of course so here's a blog post with a translation: News: Virtual On Force is region free Also we have independent confirmation from people who bought the game already, for example this […]

I didn’t think this kind of thing was legally possible. I wish publishers had done this for a bajillion other JP only mecha games.

Any chance this game will be getting a PS3 release?

Very doubtful unfortunately.

Curses, foiled again by my apathy towards the Xbox 360. All well, Xbox owning mecha fans deserve a really solid game themselves every so often. Besides, with the new Steel Battalion on the distant horizon, I might just have to pick one of those up anyway.

The achievements and achievement descriptions are in English, but the game itself is completely in Japanese.

Sorry to disappoint folks.

The Robro, do you have the Japanese or the Asian version of the game? … are both Japanese only (except for the cheevos) ?

🙁
