Can't wait for Lost Odyssey?

Then import it. It works. In English.

Eurogamer has confirmed that the recently released Asian version of Lost Odyssey can be played in English and works on PAL Xbox 360 consoles.

Well, Dave McCarthy confirmed it. He's excitedly playing through it at the moment, the look of love on his face, the semi-regular spinning initiation of random battles probably reflected in a glassy stare of concentration and affection. Unless it's rubbish, obviously.

That's something we should be in a position to let you know about soon. Japanese weekly Famitsu, of course, gave it 36/40. Mind you, they gave Blue Dragon 37. And Nintendogs about 497.

So, perhaps hang on. Or don't: Play-Asia is flogging it for USD 49.90. Up to you.

And in some cases it sounds like you've already hopped the queue, with our Lost Odyssey forum thread abuzz with commentary. "To say this game is immense is an understatement," says johnlenham.

However, LeD writes: "The thing is, all of us who are interested in the game are importing it. So chances are the game won't make the top 20 when it gets released in EU/USA, leading to 'LolOdyssey', and then MS won't bother with a sequel or more games in that vein."

Never fear though, LeD; many though you are in number, it takes a lot more to determine a game's success at the tills.

For more on Lost Odyssey, refer to our gamepage, where you can find trailers, screenshots, and 144 people tagging it on their Most Wanted pages - and a few people sneakily already playing it.

The PAL version is due out on 29th February.
