Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen PS Vita physical release

Unfortunately, the PS Vita version of Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen is digital only in the West. The game is releasing after the cutoff for physical cartridge manufacturing in North America and Europe from Sony. The only hope for this is if some publisher in Asia can work out a deal with NIS America to do a limited physical release for the PS Vita version in Asia.

Utawarerumono: Prelude to the Fallen releases on May 26 in North America and May 29 in Europe (and digitally in India) for PS4 and PS Vita. The PC version releases at a later date from ShiraVN.
