Yesterday, we reported that Amazon.co.uk and Play.com had both put up a product listing for Half-Minute Hero 2, with October 21st mentioned as a potential European release date for the game.
While Play made no mention of who would publish the game, Amazon listed — and still do, as of this post — Rising Star Games, who published the original Half-Minute Hero in Europe. Just a short while ago, however, Rising Star got in touch with Siliconera to let us know that they are not, in fact, the European publisher for Half-Minute Hero 2.
This doesn’t necessarily mean that Half-Minute Hero 2 won’t be seeing a European release. In fact, Eurogamer list Namco Bandai as the game’s publisher. We’ve gotten in touch with Namco for their comments on the matter, and will update as necessary.
