Earlier this month we discovered Capcom was localizing Fate/Unlimited Codes Portable. And yes, the fighting game based on Fate/Stay Night is coming here, but in North America it will only be released as on the PlayStation Store.
The PSP version is the latest version of Fate/Unlimited Codes and it has enhancements like a reflect dash move, simplified controls and new costumes for fans. Fate/Unlimited Codes Portable comes out in Japan this June. Capcom USA plans to release it domestically this summer. Good to see Capcom is expediting its release. The digital download will cost $29.99, about the same price as a retail PSP game, but it’s cheaper than importing! Plus you get the game in English, which is another bonus.
Releasing Fate/Unlimited Codes Portable only as a downloadable game won’t please everybody, but it’s better than the alternative — not getting it at all. Kudos to Capcom for thinking outside of the box and giving Fate/Unlimited Codes Portable a domestic release.
