Sydney based video game developer Nnooo have announced that their CPU-prison-break puzzle game escapeVektor is heading to Japan very soon.
escapeVektor was met with favourable reviews when it was released in Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the Americas late in 2012, praised for its easy-to-learn and addictive puzzle gameplay. The game will now also be made available in Japan, downloadable from the 3DS eShop on December 11th. The PS Vita version will also see a Japanese release, though a date is yet to be announced.
“We were approached by a few Japanese publishers earlier in the year, all keen to release escapeVektor in Japan,” said Bruce Thomson, Business & Marketing Director at Nnooo. “They all thought the game would resonate with Japanese gamers.”
escapeVektor will be published in Japan by Arc System Works, well known for multi-platform Japanese publishing of the following series of games: Guilty Gear, Blazblue and Persona Arena.
Nnooo have also recently reduced the price of escapeVektor permanently across existing territories (the Australian eShop price has dropped from $13 to just $8.99), so if you’re yet to play the game, there’s never been a better time to give it a go.
