Xseed, unfortunately, doesn’t have a branch in Europe. Rising Star Games and Namco Bandai release some, but not all of their titles. Lunar: Silver Star Harmony, for example, hasn’t phased into Europe yet.
Falcom titles like the upcoming release of Ys SEVEN won’t have this problem. On Facebook, Xseed announced they will release Falcom games as digital downloads on Europe’s PlayStation Store shortly after the North American release. An Xseed spokesperson says a UMD release in Europe is “unlikely.”
In other words, European Falcom fans won’t get fancy cloth maps , but can still get the game.
Thanks to Laura (hi?) for asking the question!
