Yakuza of the End delayed, Disaster Report 4 cancelled

Publishers react to Japan disaster

Understandably, Japanese publishers have confirmed that a number of game releases will be delayed following the last week's earthquake disaster.

Sony Computer Entertainment Japan announced earlier today that the Japanese release of Motorstorm 3, which was scheduled for release on March 17, is now TBA.


Sega has also revealed the release Yakuza Of The End is now also TBA, citing "various circumstances" as the reason for the delay.

Capcom has also delayed the release of DLC characters Jill and Shuma-Gorath for Marvel vs. Capcom 3, though it is not clear if this is also the case for the US and Europe.

Japanese developer and publisher Irem went one step further and has announced it has outright cancelled Disaster Report 4. Disaster report 4 was to feature an earthquake that destroys a city as one of the game's main playable scenarios. It was fully playable and close to release.

Japanese publishers have begun announcing campaigns and donations to support relief efforts in the country.
