IIRC the Italian version was identical to the UK if that one is still on Amazon.it

im suprise it is still available with the namco fiasco in overselling the us WE. For those who had their order canceled by namco. might as well bite the bullet, and buy the german version, still way cheaper than ebay price.

Amazon UK sold out I think ppl are afraid of buying German. I wish all these developers/publishers would just hire Anazon to do inventory and sales for them.

Going to ask the obvious question here: Is the game in English? (audio and interface-wise)

If so, I may as well get this to offset my cancellation from Namco/Digital River

yes the game should have an english language option. DLC will probably not worh though unless you have a german PSN account.

Some Ebay completed auctions were over 500 dollars for this (US Version of course) Amazing what people are willing to pay.

The total is $108.71 (USD)
Delivery date: 9 February 2013 - 14 February 2013

The audio may not be English, but you can probably select English text for subtitles (and hopefully menus).

Thanks OP!

I was just going to order this since they cancelled my second order (from restock), but I checked my email and they actually shipped my order from last nights thread.

Unbelievable. I used the $20 off as well. Bless their incompetence.


Evidently that link was for some kind of super secret priority sales version.

Using Google translate for the webpage I saw this statement: "The speech is in English or Japanese. The subtitles are in English, German, French, Spanish and Italian included."

Well I guess its better then no Wizard edition, thanks op!

Also I dont understand why they cancel my order in the first place, the second chance ordering started around 10:00 AM PST right? My order was at 10:10 AM PST, sigh....so much disappointment right now.

Just checked my order placed yesterday on Namco site and I got shipping confirmation. The one I ordered on January 17th during the restock got cancelled and I received the $20 off coupon from DR. Weird turn of events for sure.

Amazon UK is supposed to have some left over stock of the UK version up for sale around the time of release.

Same thing, except all the packaging will be in English.

wow. thx, I didn't bother checking today because I didn't think it would go thru.. I just check my email and it's shipped too. It's the one I used $20 coupon, for $106 next day shipping + tax.

Thank you SO much OP! :D I was checking all of the UK sites this afternoon and saw they were all sold out too. As soon as I got the book in game & pulled it up in the menu, saw how long & detailed it was, I instantly regretted not getting in on the US preorder.

I'll sell my US copy when this one arrives. :)

I'm currently lurking club namco, can you explain how were you able to get it and where it showed up on the site?

There was a backdoor CS Only link that was posted.

People who still had the link and/or copies in their cart are unable to checkout with them so don't even bother.

Someone made a thread in the middle of the night yeterday with the item already in a cart. Just went ahead and orders a copy with 3 day shipping as it was only $2 more thinking if you pay for faster shipping they might process your order faster. Maybe that worked.

Ah okay thanks guys. Maybe I'll get lucky on the site, if not my German copy will do.

I can't believe it shipped, my order from the 17th got cancelled. Bless their incompetence indeed

Quick questions guys, why is everyone jumping on the Wizard edition. I know the game is pretty amazing, but was the CE that limited?

because of the limited release in the US, you can only get it through the official namco website

May want to sell the disc out of the german version instead, for DLC and game save compatibility.


That's a good thought, thanks. I think I'll just give the German version to a friend as an early b-day present. :)

I bought it... I think I'm going to cancel and just get the guide book and a used copy. It works out to about the same... Minus Drippy. :cry:

It sounds like even if you ordered during the restock on the 17th, people that used the Customer Service link last night stole their preorders. What a joke!
