Yesterday the Tecmo Koei Twitter account posted a hint towards Japanese exclusive Ar Nosurge would be coming West, and today the publisher has confirmed that the JRPG will be releasing in Europe on September 26th for PS3. A Vita version of the game has recently been confirmed for release in Japan, though that is still in early stages of development. However, it’s currently bad news for North American hopefuls as a release for that market is yet to be finalised.
