One Piece: Romance Dawn 3DS Won’t Be Ported for North America


video-gameplay-one-piece-romance-dawn

Representatives of Namco Bandai Games in the US have recently confirmed to Siliconera (via the recent Anime Expo) that the One Piece: Romance Dawn RPG port on the Nintendo 3DS (which was originally released for the PSP) will not be getting a North American release, despite having a proper English localization due to the European release. The news especially stings because the 3DS is region-locked, so even if you import the game, you won’t be able to play it without importing a European 3DS as well.

This decision is certainly disappointing for North American 3DS owners, but not hardly surprising as Namco Bandai has frequently excluded the US in localizations of their anime-related games (such as the Saint Seiya ones), mainly due to licensing and rights conflicts.

The 3DS version of One Piece: Romance Dawn will be released on August 8th in Japan and on November 20th in Europe.
