Template:Vgregion

From RPCS3 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This template is used in conjunction with vginfobox template to summarize release date information for computer or video game articles when multiple regions are present. Where no region segregation is present, do NOT use this template.

Syntax

{{vgregion | region = date or publisher }}

region
Shortened region name. See below for regions guide.
It is also possible to combine multiple regions in this parameter, for release dates which are the same between several regions -- e.g. EU/NA, however it uses a | instead of = between the region and the date, like this: {{vgregion|NA/EU|December 5, 2001}}.
date
Release date in Month DD, YYYY format. Example: November 12, 2011.
publisher
Name of the publisher for the region mentioned.

Regions

The following parameters may be specified to display release dates for multiple regions in a single call. The order cannot be changed, so if the list is out of chronological order separate calls have to be created.

JP 
Japanese release
NA 
North American release
EU(/PAL) 
European release
AU 
Australasian (Australia and New Zealand) release

{{vgregion|JP=Nippon Ichi Software|NA=NIS America|EU=NIS Europe}}

Catherine - Call separated to workaround a rare bug where the publisher (such as Atlus USA) whose name is an extension of another publisher (such as Atlus) of the same game will be ignored and the publisher with the shorter name is linked twice

NA Atlus USA
JP Atlus
EU Deep Silver
AU QV Software


Demon's Souls - Combined regions

Disgaea 4: A Promise Unforgotten - Substitute for when the WW region is used in Wikipedia. The idea is to use specific region tags as far as mentioned and use a combined parameter for the balance regions.

JP Nippon Ichi Software
NA/EU/AU NIS America
