Renegade Kid's Jools Watsham has been in touch to clarify that the developer is also submitting Xeodrifter for age ratings and publication in Australia and New Zealand, in addition to Europe.
Getting a game fully certified for release in Europe isn't, unfortunately, as simple as in North America. While the process in NA is a quick and free online affair, it's a pricier and more complicated process in the EU; plans to simplify proceedings are in the works, however. While some developers and publishers nevertheless publish across both territories, others are slightly more picky in which titles make it to Europe.
Renegade Kid is one studio that's been more selective with its European releases, largely as a result of the bureaucratic and financial challenges that come with the territory. Thankfully Xeodrifter is making its way to the region - it's a snappy little Metroidvania title that we rated very highly in our review, quite a feat considering it was a snap project turned around in just five months.
Renegade Kid co-founder Jools Watsham has given the following update on the European release, giving us some hope that it'll arrive in the not-too-distant future.
Are you looking forward to this one in Europe, or are you a North American gamer that wants to pitch it to those on the fence? Hit up the comments if so.
