Europe Gets Theatrhythm And Heroes of Ruin Close To Their U.S. Releases


North America and Europe are getting the same pre-order bonus for Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy—a customizable stylus and sticker set. The sticker sheet you get for pre-ordering comes with 17 character stickers on it, which can also be applied to the large stylus.


Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy will be released on July 3rd in North America and on July 6th in Europe.


Meanwhile, Square Enix also announced a European date for Heroes of Ruin along with Nintendo who will act as the game’s distributor in Europe. Under the agreement, Nintendo will be responsible for sales, marketing and distribution of the game throughout the European Economic Area, Switzerland, Russia, Turkey and South Africa, with Square Enix remaining the game’s publisher.


Heroes of Ruin will be released on June 15th in Europe. Their North American press site lists the game’s U.S. release date as June 26th. Square recently shared that the game is currently close to being submitted to Nintendo for approval.
