Following the announcement of Kamen Rider: Memory of Heroez, Bandai Namco Entertainment announced that the game will be released in South-East Asia.
Not only it will launch day and date with the Japanese release, but it will come with English subtitles.
This means that western fans will easily be able to import the game via the local PlayStation Store and enjoy a Kamen Rider game in a language they can easily understand.
At the moment there is no information about an official western release, but that’s likely to be hindered by the usual licensing issues bound to this kind of IP.
The South-East Asian market is going to get both the standard version and the “Premium Sound” edition including 60 songs from the series.
You can watch the announcement trailer below, broadcasted at the end of the publisher BNEWFunLive program.
Kamen Rider is one of the most long-lasting TV shows in the history of Japanese TV and has continued to air in the country with annual series all the way since 1971.
It’s so much of a staple on Japanese TV that the periods of broadcasting are named after eras of the local calendar. The latest series is titled Kamen Rider Zero-One, and started in September 2019.
