Xenosaga pushed back to 2002
It has been announced today that Namco’s upcoming PS2 title Xenosaga Episode 1: Der Wille zur Macht will be delayed to a February 2002 release date in Japan. Originally expected for a fall release in Japan, Namco has not given a specific reason for the set back. However, its developer has stated that in the past the company has always been very concerned with the quality of their games, and wants to understand the type of capacity this game could bring. No date has been given concerning the North American release, but it is expected the title won’t reach the country until late 2002. Shaping up to be one of the best looking RPG titles the PS2 may see, hopefully the delay can only benefit this already gorgeous title.
