Iron Brigade "Really Close" To European Release

Iron Brigade, the artist formerly known as Trenched, still hasn't released in Europe after the catastrophic copyright infringment claims from a Portuguese board game manufacturer. However, Double Fine now believe that they are "really close" to being able to bring their action/tower defence/mech combat hybrid to the European Xbox Live marketplace, blaming the delay on insane bureaucracy. We've got the full details below.

It was released this past June in the States, but a trademark issue led to a European delay, with the game only now nearing release.

Worldwide Release Imminent?

Double Fine Ditches Trenched Trademark

Trenched, Double Fine's XBLA mech action/tower defence hybrid, still hasn't released in European territories thanks to a long-running trademark dispute with a Portuguese board game manufacturer. Double Fine has now confirmed that they'll be rebranding the title to Iron Brigade, which should allow the title to launch worldwide in the near future.

A title update will deliver some new weapons and costumes as well as the all-important name change - and paid DLC packs will be hitting over the next few months. We're looking forward to finally trying it out.

Double Fine producer Brad Muir has spoken out to confirm that Microsoft is trying to "resolve" the situation and confirms that the problems stem from a board game trademark issue. Full quotes below.

However, there's absolutely nothing whimsical or childish about this one.
