On March 25, 1199, King Richard I was fatally wounded during a battle with French soldiers. 812 years later to the day, God of War III will be released in Japan. Coincidence? I think not. While Sony has given no official word for a European release date, it seems likely that March 26 will be the day that members of Anglo-Saxon and Germanic tribes will be able to pick up the title. In related news, Sony neglected to give an update on a release of the God of War Collection in Europe. However, the Blu-ray disc anthology has already been released in the US, so resourceful individuals will surely be able to acquire a copy of their own.
