You can get Battle Fantasia for the PS3 in English

By Spencer . August 1, 2008 . 8:52am


Battle Fantasia is coming out in North America this September, but for the Xbox 360 only. A PlayStation 3 version is already out in Japan, but the story is obviously in Japanese. For a fighting game, Battle Fantasia has an unusually high amount of text since it’s a fusion of an RPG and a 2.5D fighting game. If you're patient you won't have to worry about the Japanese text. 505 Games will release the Xbox 360 version and PlayStation 3 version of Battle Fantasia in Europe in Q1 2009.

    What kind of RPG elements does this game have?

  • G

    I’ve seen tons of battles (arcade version), but never saw any RPG element which is new for Battle Fantasia. Could you explain it pls?

  • It’s not like your characters persistently level up, but the console version has a full story mode with voice acting/text and branching paths to follow.

    Can my US PS3 play the europe english version if I import it?

  • thaKingRocka

    ps3 is region-free.
    i find it really odd that it’s 360 only. i’ll grab it for 360 if it’s region-free. i know the jp edition is locked, so i didn’t wanna pony up for it, but i’ll pay full price for a region-free american version.

    Rumor has it SCEA denied the PS3 release due to no voice localization.

    I’ve also heard Microsoft was behind us not getting Shikigami III60.

  • laharsama

    Yup. PS3 is Region Free

  • jarrod – I’ve heard the same re: MS and shiki III60.

    sucks that SCEA can still deny games for no voice localization after letting Ryu ga Gotoku 2 do it. Not that I’m complaining about that one!
