Today Sony has confirmed that after a prolonged delay Evolution Studios’ MotorStorm Apocalypse won’t be launching in Japan. The company has yet to disclose reasons as to why, though it’s safe to assume the cancellation was made due to the Eastern earthquake and tsunami. MotorStorm Apocalypse is set within a collapsing city, suddenly populated with a fleet of “Lunatic” adrenaline-seekers, looking to exploit the disaster for personal glory. From that description alone, it’s easy to see why Sony were quick to put the game on hold.
Luckily for Japanese PlayStation 3 owners still looking to get a slice of the action, Sony’s home console is region-free, meaning any imported versions of the game will run without a hitch.
