Quantum Theory hits Japan in March, North America.... ???


Tecmo has confirmed that its third-person action title, Quantum Theory, will hit Japanese store shelves this March for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

As for the rest of the world, Tecmo isn't saying. We noted that retailers, including the all-mighty GameStop, aren't listing Quantum Theory... period. So we checked in with Tecmo to see what was up.

"The March release date for Quantum Theory is confirmed only for Japan," a spokesperson simply said.

The whole thing is a bit odd, as Quantum Theory seems to be designed for North American audiences, heavily borrowing mechanics from titles like Gears of War. It's surprising to see that Tecmo is being so "hush hush" on a North American release, which has previously been slated for "Spring."

In any case, there's little doubt the game will make its way to North America. We'll just have a wait a bit longer to find out when.

[Update: After running this story, retailer GameStop has begun listing Quantum Theory for a March 30 release date.]
