This template is used in conjunction with {{Infobox video game}} to summarize release date information for video game articles.


Using named parameters

The following parameters may be specified to display release dates for multiple regions in a single call (however, they will not be sorted in any particular order):

Japanese region release date.
North American release date.
PAL region release date. (or, if they differ: EU=date: European release date, AUS=date: Australasian (Australia and New Zealand) release date.)
South Korean release date.
South American release date.
International version release date. See link to make sure you know what an international version is.

If it is desirable to list release dates in a specific order (e.g. chronological), specify each region with a separate call.

Alternate syntax

Using two parameters {{vgrelease | [[region]] | date }}

Wikilinked region name. For brevity, should be formatted as a piped link, e.g. [[Japan|JPN]]'.
  • It is also possible to combine multiple regions in this parameter, for release dates which are the same between several regions -- e.g. [[North America|NA]] / [[Europe|EU]]
Release date (may be wikilinked for date formatting preferences)

Using three parameters (for backwards compatibility) {{vgrelease | region | ID | date }}

region | ID
Name and abbreviation for the region (Japan, North America, etc.) to which the release date applies. This is essentially the same format as a piped link, minus the surrounding brackets.
Release date (may be wikilinked for date formatting preferences)
