The Curse of Pal Raiden Fighters Aces


Ahh the long and twisted tale of the Pal Raiden Fighters Aces (360) release might be nearing an end. I downloaded a demo of the game when I first picked up my 360 all those years ago and in the intervening years the rights to the game have shuffled from publisher to publisher. Indeed after numerous shifting release dates and company bankruptcies, there might be light at the end of the tunnel.

It appears that Raiden Fighters Aces might be getting a German PAL release at the end of March:

And an interesting question on DTP's forum.

Considering that the company tend publish its titles as European releases and not soley for the German market this might mean we'll actually get a PAL release.

We have been here before though with the Australian PAL release last year which never made it out. I'm if it does make it out the game won't include the superplay DVD of the wonderful Japanese version (please prove me wrong). I'll keep you informed about this story as it unfolds.

  1. I'll hold out for now for a pre-order but I really do hope we see a PAL release, no matter what country it lands on. I'll be buying the JAP version at some point anyhow I imagine

    1. there's no question that the JAP version will be nicer, I'm expecting a full black and white manual and no superplay DVD!!. I'd be really intreagued if the german version ended up as a PAL exclusive
