Arc the Lad arrived in the UK (on the PlayStation Network) for the first time yesterday, although there’s one problem: the game is in Japanese.

Fret not, the game was indeed supposed to be in English, and the people behind the port, MonkeyPaw Games has admitted that it was a mistake, and they’re working with Sony to rectify the issue.

“Unfortunately, this is a mistake,” revealed MonkeyPaw marketing manager Ray Almeda.

“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.”

Arc the Lad is a strategy RPG that was released in Japan way back in 1995 on the PlayStation, with a release in America coming as part of an Arc the Lad Collection in 2002. Until yesterday, the game hadn’t seen a release in Europe.
