Enchant Arm, N3 slip in Japan

So, er, no Arm done, then.

Microsoft may be confident of doing better in Japan than last time following Xbox 360's launch there on December 10, but it'll have to get into the groove without help from Enchant Arm or Ninety-Nine Nights - at least for a little while.

According to numerous reports, From Software's Enchant Arm - the RPG that fills up more than one DVD, you may remember - is now set for release on January 12th in the region. FromSoft apparently wants a few extra weeks to touch it up, and perhaps rethink that awful "[eM] -eNCHANT arM-" moniker we're loath to use.

Meanwhile, Ninety-Nine Nights, the Tetsuya Mizuguchi-helmed action game in development at Phantagram and Q Entertainment, is now on for release next spring according to various reports.

Enchant Arm had been expected to pitch up at launch, while Ninety-Nine Nights (N3 to its friends) was on for late January. At the moment, the December 10 launch line-up for Japan is Dead or Alive 4, FIFA 06, Ridge Racer 6, Every Party, Tetris: The Grandmaster Ace, Need for Speed Most Wanted and Perfect Dark Zero.
