European importers get early access to English Lost Odyssey

loasian.jpgThe Asian version of Lost Odyssey has something the Japanese version doesn’t English and Chinese text. If you add in three different voiceover tracks: English, Japanese and Korean, this is a prime import. Now only if it was region free… and it sort of is!

 

Play-Asia notes the Asian version of Lost Odyssey will work in Japanese/Asian Xbox 360s plus PAL Xbox 360s. So, if you’re in Europe and you can cut the wait for Kaim’s quest down a month.  However, if you’re in North America you are unfortunately out of luck. The Asian version will not work with NTSC-U Xbox 360s. This is a quizzical set up, I can't think of another Asian game that works with NTSC-J and PAL 360s, but not NTSC-U consoles.

    “This is a quizzical set up, I can’t think of another Asian game that works with NTSC-J and PAL 360s, but not NTSC-U consoles.”

    Exactly!

    Something tells me that Microsoft intentionally kept Americans from importing. That’s the only logical explanation. By default it should be EASIER, if anything, to allow a NTSC-J game to run on a NTSC-U console.

    Stupid move. I would have imported this right now.
