 NEWS General Updates

PS3 Ni no Kuni Shiroki Seihai no Joō
   A North American localization of Ni no Kuni for the Playstation 3 was announced late last week. The Japanese version of the game ships on November 17, 2011 and the USA edition ships sometime in 2012.  
Sony's Playstation Vita is Region-Free
   The current Playstation Portable is region-free for PSP software and Sony's upcoming handheld successor will also be region-free for Vita software but movies will be region-protected. Given the failure of the UMD movie business on the PSP, movies shouldn't pose much of a selling point for the Vita. Preorders are expected to open up on or around October 15 from NCS. Delivery is expected on December 17, 2011.
Tokyo Game Show 2011
Capcom showed Monster Hunter 4 for the Nintendo 3DS at the Tokyo Game Show. NCS will accept preorders once a release date is confirmed.
