Today, NIS America have revealed that the english localisation of Demon Gaze, an upcoming dungeon-crawling RPG, will be coming to the EU and US this Spring on PS Vita. Luckily, players won’t need to wait long since it’ll be released on April 25th in Europe and on the 22nd for the US. For the hardcore JRPG collectors, NISA have also begun taking pre orders for the Premium Edition of Demon Gaze, which includes a Soft Cover artbook featuring artwork from the game and a soundtrack CD featuring original music for the title, all presented in a special collectible box, along with a physical copy of the game.
You can preorder the Standard and Premium Editions of Demon Gaze on NIS America’s Online Store.
The Premium Edition is only available directly from NISA’s store and will be for the US version of the game. No premium Edition has been announced for the EU version, but since the PS Vita is region free, the only thing standing in the way of buying the Premium Edition for European gamers would be shipping / custom fees, and not having to worry about any archaic region-locking preventing them from importing the game.
