Sony is only releasing the PlayStation 3 remake of Siren as an episodic PlayStation Network game in North America. A cautious move, but somewhat reasonable since Siren didn’t reach top the charts when it was a PlayStation 2 game. Sony Computer Entertainment America even passed on Siren 2 regardless of an existing English translation completed by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe. So, we’re definitely not going to see the game in retail stores, but if you want to own a physical copy of the game in English there is a way.
Sony Computer Entertainment Asia’s product page for Siren: New Translation, the Japanese name for Siren: Blood Curse, has Japanese and English language support. Importing the game costs around $55 and it doesn’t look like the Blu-ray disc contains any extra content. The only advantage is you get to play all twelve episodes of Siren: Blood Curse without waiting for the next episode. However, Sony Computer Entertainment America has not announced the price per episode, which could be cheaper than buying the disc.
