Battle Fantasia May See US Release as PSN Download for PS3
Arc System Works' quirky 2D fighter, Battle Fantasia, saw a US release last year as an Xbox 360 exclusive, although the game is available on PS3 in the rest of the world (Europe and Japan).
However, it looks as though American PS3 owners may be getting a new chance at playing the game.
Siliconera (linked above) discovered a recently-appended entry to the ESRB listing for Battle Fantasia. The ratings board has the game covered on PS3 and "PSN via PS3."
To quote: It looks like there is a chance the PS3 version of Battle Fantasia could come to North America in a rather peculiar way. The ESRB re-rated Battle Fantasia as an Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and "PSN via PS3 game".
So, Aksys is planning to distribute a retail PS3 game as a PlayStation Network download? We've seen this happen before with games like Warhawk, Gran Turismo 5: Prologue, and Siren: Blood Curse which unlike the rest of the world was only a PSN download here.
