  • You should have just make the physical Premium Edition even if it’s going to be release later than the 27 March. I would have buy it even if the physical edition release at a later day and also you should already have started making the physical Premium Edition and taking pre order for it even if you don’t know when the actual release date is an estimated release date should be enough to already to have started making the physical Premium Edition and taking pre order so that you would at lease make that amount of physical Premium Edition from the pre orders. At lease consider to just make the Premium Edition containing the goods only and release it at a later date I will buy it if you guys would make it

  • Anybody who’s actually interested in getting the physical premium edition, honestly, just buy it from Amazon America. It releases March 3rd, which even after factoring shipping across the world, is still way sooner than this. The PS4 is region free, so you can play the game without any issues. As far as DLC goes, all you need to do is create a US PSN to purchase and download it (which is extremely quick and easy with many guides in a simple google search). Just saying, you don’t have to put all your eggs in Marvelous’ basket because they clearly dropped the ball here.

  • But there’s still going to be a physical premium edition for the US, so you’re just delaying the game for an extra 3 and a half weeks, and cancelling that? You even said “March 27th is just a temporary date, it’s not our actual release date” on twitter. I could have already bought the premium edition and had it arrived in the time it took you to announce this, thanks to how quiet you’ve been.

  • I agree with all the precedent comments: you dropped the ball!
    There is no way I’m gonna buy on the ps4 store. I want to buy a physical version. But I won’t buy full price a standard version…! ^^
    Too bad, I will just wait for a “goty edition” with all the contents. Or just a very cheap price from the standard version… Many other games to do so no problem… Just very disappointed.

  • Pretty much worst case scenario, bar cancelling the release completely, but at least that would’ve been a good excuse to buy the physical deluxe edition from Asia. You waited just long enough to reveal this stupendously disappointing news though that every online retailer is sold out, very clever. At the very least, I thought with such a huge delay and such an abundance of extra time, there couldn’t possibly be any further issues- never would’ve thought the Physical premium edition would be canned. Idk what happened here but all I can say is… wow, you really dropped the ball huh.
