Final Fantasy VIII and SaGa Frontier 2 announced for European release
[05.10.99] » Sony signs on to bring two of Square's
latest RPGs to Europe.
North American gamers may complain about
missing out on some of Japan's biggest hits, but it's actually
Europe who gets the shortest end of the stick -- numerous major
RPG releases have missed the continent completely.
The situation is at least a bit brighter in
the near future, however. Sony Europe announced it would be
releasing both Final Fantasy VIII and SaGa Frontier 2, though no
release dates were specified.
Also on its way to Europe is the
Platinum release (equivalent to North America's Greatest Hits
releases) of Final Fantasy VII. Due to be released on May 28th,
the rerelease will include the playable demo of FF VII that U.S.
and Japanese gamers received with Brave Fencer Musashi.
