Grandia III heading to the US

But will it make it to Europe?

It looks like the latest instalment in Square-Enix's Grandia series is heading to US PS2s - but there are no plans for a European release at present.

Rumours of a US version emerged after videogames rating board the ESRB confirmed that it had awarded the game a "Teen" rating. The ESRB only rates games once they have been submitted by the publisher - but Square-Enix has yet to make an official announcement.

IGN contacted the publisher's US office and was told: "Though we can't confirm anything at the moment, an announcement regarding the status of Grandia III in North America will be coming soon."

Sounds like the Yankees will indeed be getting the game then - but us Europeans might not be so lucky.

Speaking to Eurogamer this morning, a spokesperson told us: "At the moment there are no plans to bring Grandia III to Europe."

That doesn't mean it'll never happen, of course... After all, the first two Grandia titles were released over here, so it's certainly possible. We liked the look of the screenshots released earlier this year, so fingers crossed...
