Bring out the champagne: Grand Knights History is coming to the States 'this winter'

Earlier today, the folks at XSEED Games revealed that they'll be bringing Vanillaware's fabulous, fantastical RPG, Grand Knights History, to the States "this winter."

They also revealed that this PSP title, which hit Japanese store shelves on Sept. 1 and has since sold nearly 100,000 copies in that region, will be released both digitally (via the PlayStation Network) and physically (on a good ol' UMD).

I'm planning on picking up the UMD version myself--assuming the North American version's cover art is the same as its Japanese counterpart (right). (Oh, who am I trying to kid? I'll buy the UMD version regardless.)

Don't fret if you're a European PSP owner/user: Rising Star Games will be publishing Grand Knights History in your region sometime in 2012.

For more information on this luscious-looking game, read XSEED's press release announcing its localization.

This came out of nowhere! Well, at least for me... I was very worried we wouldn't be getting this in English!

I'm very pleased, obviously! Definitely picking this one up... hopefully it's out earlier rather than later this Winter!

Me, too, Kamiwoo! I really thought we wouldn't see it outside of Japan. Also, I'm hoping, too, that it's out sooner rather than later. Before Christmas would be great, of course!

Ha ha! You mean this is another game you want for one of the PS systems, Justin? If so, I understand completely :)
