Space Invaders Remix Sneaks Out, Europe Nabs Another Code R In June

image Don’t rush to import Space Invaders Extreme 2! Chances are it’s coming out overseas under the name Space Invaders Remix… soon. Nintendo of Europe sent out a massive release schedule dating Space Invaders Remix for PAL regions on June 5th.

 

While Square Enix occasionally publishes localized games in Europe first (remember the World Ends With You?) international releases are generally clumped close together. Also, Square Enix’s Taito published games are cheap compared to Japan. Space Invaders Extreme went for the low price of $19.99. I can’t see Square Enix charging 3,990 yen ($40) for the same game over here.

 

Europe’s list also has timelines for key Wii games like Punch-Out!! scheduled for release there in May. Nintendo of America gives Punch-Out!! a more specific release date, May 18. Missing on our release schedule, but exists on Europe’s is Another Code R (temporary name) which comes out there in June. Let’s hope Nintendo of America is saving the announcement for a later date. After all we’re getting Excitebots in April and it’s absent on Europe’s list.

    I am currently loving Space Invaders Extreme for the PSP so I’m really happy the sequel will be picked up overseas. (no psp version T_T , but I didn’t get the 1st DS game so I’ll just get this one instead)

    While I’m glad Another Code R is getting overseas treatment too, I just hope NoA is kind enough to follow thier Euro branch and publish it too.

    They really should have called it something other than “Remix”. They make it sound like it’s nothing more than a slightly tweaked version of the first. But even if it is it’ll still be awesome.

    Nice to see they have plans for Space Invaders Extreme 2 so soon. I hope that Space Puzzle Bobble isn’t left behind.

      Exactly what I was thinking. I’m hoping they finally revert to the “Puzzle Bobble” branding here too.

    No Captain Rainbow!!! so sad I played the Japanese version it could be the best adventure puzzle game on Wii and best Skip game ever.
