MarvelousAQL has cancelled the planned PAL release of Rune Factory 4, leaving it unavailable in Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
The 3DS game is already available in America and Japan but it is thought that the bankruptcy and closure of the game’s developer Neverland in November 2013 is behind the decision.
"We regret to inform you that the European release of Rune Factory 4 for Nintendo 3DS has been cancelled," the publisher confirmed. "While MarvelousAQL has made every effort to secure the title's release for this territory, it is, unfortunately, not possible to do so at this time.
“MAQL and MAQL Europe would like to thank everyone for their support and enthusiasm for their European releases. Please look forward to announcements on new MAQL titles over the coming months."
And before you ask, no, the 3DS is not region free.
