Blades of Time update: there's a copy in New Jersey!

Blades of Time update: there's a copy in New Jersey! photo



Destructoid's intense journalistic coverage of Blades of Time continues, with news that a physical copy of the game has been traced to the East Coast. I swung by my local GameStop to see if it had anything, and was informed that the closest copy to Mississippi was located in a store somewhere in New Jersey

As many have pointed out, GameStop's website lists the game with a March 31 release date, but that is not the official launch day. The game definitely came out earlier this week, although at this rate it's reasonable to assume that Konami just forgot to tell the US' largest retailer. I really wouldn't be shocked by anything Konami does anymore.

Blades of Time can still be bought from Amazon, of course. Personally, I have finally asked Konami for a review copy, since my plan to pick it up in-store and get a timely review done has proven impossible. I shall keep you updated with any further information. 

This is the hottest story of 2012.

Review: Blades of Time

You've got to give Gaijin Entertainment some credit. The Russian studio has no reputation for creating good games, and 2009's X-Blades was particularly mediocre. Despite this, Gaijin just keeps on plugging and is ev...more

Blades of Time's producer can't find his own game

I've made it a personal mission to excessively cover Blades of Time for no other reason than I find Konami's lack of marketing utterly fascinating. The game allegedly launched yesterday, but you'll be lucky if you can find a ...more

Fun facts about X-Blades followup Blades of Time

X-Blades sequel Blades of Time out March 6

I will be perfectly honest -- I had no idea this was a thing. It seems beyond comprehension that X-Blades would actually manage to get a sequel, but it seems that Konami has picked the title up from the ashes of Southpeak an...more
