Not really impressed or nothing I'd "WOW" over at least... It would be really awesome if it was Baby Blue with the sketch on it.

Why can't this have a NA version? I would buy it.

I'll take this as a sign that Japan has more hard core Frozen fans then the US.

Comes to show of how popular Frozen is to Japan and it's quite easy to see why because of the touching relationship between the main leads Elsa and Anna and it's why everyone can relate to them more than any Disney Princess in recent years.

Come on Japan, why not green light an anime series of Frozen? You did it for Lilo & Stitch so why not Frozen as well?

Also, just announce Frozen is added into Kingdom Hearts already, Square Enix! It's Disney's biggest pop culture phenomenon since The Lion King and it's pretty much a no brainer by this point.

I absolutely love Frozen (saw it twice in theaters, got the BR the day it came out, and have an awesome Elsa shirt from TeeFury), but even if it came to NA I'd pass on this. Frozen doesn't have a game for the PS4 so it would just feel random.

UNLESS Frozen is a world in Kingdom Hearts 3. Which had better happen (Elsa as an ally would ROCK), and there's also Wreck-It-Ralph, Princess and the Frog, Tangled, all of Pixar, and a ton of older movies they've yet to touch. I'm going to be really irritated if we get too many recycled worlds in 3.

^One of the co-directors has said that he would love for Frozen to be in the game ('because of how gorgeous it is and all the ice and snow and all), but the article I was reading made it sound more like a wish than anything actually happening.

If I loved Frozen like that then maybe, but it doesn't look that special either. The price isn't bad though right? Doesn't a regular PS4 cost around that much?

I saw that movie twice in a row in theaters (back to back showings) and then saw it again with my gf. One of the best American films made in years, imo. This would be a no-brainer purchase if I didn't already own a PS4!

Looks like so apparently. Now I wonder if we will get this version. Confused

And besides, temporary hit phenomenons didn't keep Tarzan out of the first game or Pirates out of the second! Razz

People are reading too much into this. Japan is known for having like 50 limited editions of every single console. Sure they like Frozen, but its not like a limited edition console there is something unique.
