Of course it doesn't have the Bonus Side Game that the US will get.
If Nintendo is good at anything right now (besides sending the 3DS into a death spiral) it's not keeping any of it's international incarnations in line such that one region gets Xenoblade and the other doesn't.

Yeah the UK always loses out all the damned time cause we rely too much on America and it's not as if that does us any good cause we have to put up with their crappy resolution on DVDs and such.

Incidentally, Manga Ent gave the UK Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva on Blu-ray too, not just DVD.

Wait a minute - Professor Layton is set where again? And that's the area getting the short shrift?

So Japan gets "London Life", and so does the USA, but not the island (technically islandS, but work with me) that actually has London on it. I keep thinking this is some elaborate exercise in irony. I did the same when I realised "Victorian Romance Emma" wasn't getting a dub track...but at least that was a translation choice that affected all English speaking areas, not just a case of "we'll dub it, but then you're not getting it, nah-nah-nah-nah-nah!"

Perhaps I'm being cynical, but I'm willing to bet that the lack of content won't be reflected in the price.

Technically that was Kaze, with Manga as distro.

If we're gonna get technical, I'll be hours resorting all my UK anime DVDs into Siren Visual and Madman Entertainment piles, given most of what the UK anime companies put out these days are just AU discs with their own logos and trailers slapped on the front...

I'm deliberately misunderstanding...

There's a difference. Razz

I've reviewed Layton, and Vampire Knight/Guilty and have half a handle on what Kaze's relationship with Manga is.

It's why we'll probably still get Samurai Girls on UK Blu-ray, despite Manga's recent misgivings about releasing anime series in HD. It's because Samurai Girls is a Kaze title and they have final say on how it's released in the UK.

That, and Manga has said "we'll see" and the very same day Kaze has said "definitely".
