After the long wait, I think this is one of the best news I find out. Thanks to Chin Soon Sun, whom sweetly announce about the release via his Facebook (and lucky, I saw it... I rarely open my Facebook on that certain time..)
So, European fans can get it on April 6, 2012 for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. For US residences, it is available in PlayStation 3 version via digital download only. For the Xbox 360 version (US), it’s coming on March 27, 2012 in stores.
For Asia, I will rely on my source via Play-Asia. Play Asia.com so far only stated that the game will be availabe on March or April 2012 depend on region releases, but you can already pre-order. They will sell several versions:
Warriors Orochi 3 - EU - April - PlayStation3
Warriors Orochi 3 (The English version) for ASIA - March - Xbox360
Warriors Orochi 3 - EU - April - Xbox360
Warriors Orochi 3 - US - March - Xbox360
For Asia region, I don't know whether it is fully dub into English or just text in English. Duh, I wish they dub it Japanese >.>
The Good News
Anyway, the good news is... the game is using Japanese seiyuu (dub) with English subtitle. Chin didn't really specify in his blog - Insp. Chin's Blog, whether it is for all releases in US, EU, and Asia, or only for EU. Hopefully, everyone in this world can enjoy the Japanese dub.
The second good news, new characters are made and... even some "guest stars" like Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden series will mark his landing here. What? No, I don't joke around.
Go see the trailer first and see yourself what's worth for you to buy.
oh,.. still want to see Hayabusa? ;)
Happy ordering and gaming!
