First it was said that this was going to be a PSV launch tittle, and until 2 weeks ago GAME Spain had it still announced for late March, now the game is removed from their list but Japan release is still dated for next week. I cannot understand how the European release of a heavy weight tittle like this keeps being delayed forever.

What's Little King's Story?  And look at it like this; be grateful it's getting delayed, would you like it if you spent tons of money and anticipation into a game with graphics that looked like a baby's scribble, gameplay that responded a minute after the input, and so many glitches, you can see a big black-blue blotch in the middle of your Vita's screen?  Yeah, after all, they don't wanna delay the game, they want to do anything but it, but I guess the world is just swamping a truckload of problems on their heavily anticipated masterpiece.  That is, if it even is good.

I love my Vita, and it hates me, because I drop it 24/7...

@Mandoble Konami never announced a specific date for the game and certainly never said it was going to be a launch title. The Japanese version was announced for 29th March so there's no way it was going to release in Europe before that.

When Konami confirmed New Little King's Story for Europe it only said it'd release in 2012. Anyone else who's given you a more specific date/timeframe is making it up, I'm afraid!

I am not ignoring you. I just do not post much.

Several sites like Vandal.net or this one have started to announce LKS2 Vita  (localized)for first week of July.

Is there any confirmation from Konami for this release date? Or might be konami will not be the western publisher?

All  I know is that Konami says its coming this summer in the US. If Konami has the rights to the game in Europe it ought to release around the same time!

I own the original for Wii, need to start playing it so I can play the Vita's sequel!

And now it seems it is moved to autum, and no release date for EU. Many of you might not know it, but the first release was one of the very best games the Wii had, action, strategy, RPG and adventure all in one. Konami is failing miserably with this jewel sad

Release in EU in two weeks, and some stores have it in catalog so it might be retail and not only digital. Lets not let this game fail due lack of announcements, first version was a really incredibly fun and ground breaking game. Open world, exploration, adventuring, strategy, building, improving units and buildings, all in one.

It has the same art and play mechanics as the old Wii version, but the dialogs are different, more "unpolite" and less "classic/diplomatic", they are using also a pretty small font that makes the text hard to read. Aside of these points the game is fantastic, more unit types, larger areas, more building types than the old version. The controls are way better and handy now, using all the buttons, both analogs and the touch screen. Oh, and these incredible "hand-made" animations in cutscenes of the old version are now missing and replaced by static drawings of some character saying something.

@Mandoble
So wait, is it an enhanced remake or a completely new game?

It is a mix of both, I've just started the game so I cannot give many details about the story. Many things of the old game are still there, even missions and areas surrounding your base. There are new characters as well as unit and building types, now you can put your people to work on the construction of items, you may also collaborate with other online players in this activity to create items faster.

I really need to buy this game, if only to support the Vita, although I haven't a clue when I'll be able to play it.

I am a big fan of the original Little King's Story but there is no way that I am paying $40 for a digital download especially considering that it isn't a true sequel but more of a remake. I would have picked it up if it was $30 but at that price I will just wait for a price drop. I prefer the art style of the original game anyway.

@wolframheart: 10 dollars... That holds you back... Pff i do not understand people. However , maybe i do not mind if a game is 50 or 60 it is still a lot of money but somethings are worth every penny.

@Sanquine: I have no problem paying full price for a game if I feel that it is worth it. Had this been a true sequel and not just a remake of a game that I already own then I would have bought it in an instant. I am also not a fan of paying full retail price for digital games. Instead I am putting my money toward some other Vita games such as Silent Hill: Book of Memories, Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward and Ragnarok Odyssey. I am glad to hear that you are enjoying this game though.

What's the story with this game?  I tried to pick it up at GameStop and they didn't even have a record of it in their system.  Amazon only shows that it's available through another seller (strangely named "Nintendo AC Adapters".  Not at Target.  Not at Toys R Us.  Tough for a company to sell a game when it can't be purchased.

It has been released already, right?  Download only maybe (unless it's imported)?  What gives?

In EU you have retail copies, checked Game and Fnac and they have it available. In US as far as I know it is available only as digital download.

I still really want this game, but am a little miffed that it is only available in download form. I'm a stickler for physical copies...

I picked up Little King's Story for the Wii long after release, and I really liked it. It just wasn't quite at that level where I wanted to preorder the sequel and pay full price. Too bad it wasn't released at retail because the price would have dropped a good deal by now. I'll just have to patiently wait until there is a digital sale or price drop.

I think that's my approach too. I had the Wii version and liked it, but simply wasn't playing it much. I think it would really get a new life with me on the Vita though.
