Importers Rejoice! Bullet Soul Will Be Region-Free



Siliconera reader, Denpa no Sekai (who some of you know from his site), recently wrote in to publisher, 5pb. Games, to ask about whether or not their upcoming bullet hell shooter, Bullet Soul, would be region-free as they hinted back in January.


A representative from 5pb Support replied: “Thank you for your interest in our products.We are pleased to announce that we have decided to make Bullet Soul region-free. We hope you will enjoy our products.”


Additionally, Bullet Soul will be quite import-friendly, given that the menus and game’s interface will be in English. The video above, which is a tutorial for maximizing your score, shows off some of the in-game English footage.


5pb. have Bullet Soul scheduled for an Xbox 360 release on April 7th in Japan. First-print copies of the game come with a soundtrack CD that includes a bonus 8-bit track.


A high-five(pb) to Denpa no Sekai for the great sleuthing!
