EU PSN Arc the Lad is in Japanese

Developer working on a fix.

PSone classic Arc the Lad is in Japanese, making it unplayable for European gamers.

The RPG went live on the European PlayStation Store yesterday as part of the PlayStation Network Import Section.

It was announced last week by developer MonkeyPaw Games as being "in English only". Unfortunately, it is not - leaving those who bought the game in limbo.

"Unfortunately, this is a mistake," MonkeyPaw marketing manager Ray Almeda said. "We never intended to use the Japanese version. We expected the English version that we used in America. We're currently working with Sony on a fast and efficient fix, especially for those who have already downloaded the game.

"We will speak to Sony and get this situation clarified shortly. Thanks again for your attention and immense patience."
