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

Syntax

Using named parameters

The following parameters may be specified to display release dates for multiple regions in a single call (however, the order is always defined as below and cannot be changed manually in a single call):

JP=date
Japanese release dates.
NA=date
North American release dates.
PAL=date
PAL region release dates.
EU=date
European release dates, if different from AUS.
UK=date
United Kingdom release dates, if different from EU.
AUS=date
for Australasian release dates, if different from EU.
WW=date
Worldwide release dates, for digitally distributed titles available to all regions at once (e.g. Steam).

Regional release dates should be listed in chronological order, which the editor has to use separate calls for if they do not follow the order above.

Alternate syntax

Using two parameters {{Video game release | [[region]] | date }}

region
Wikilinked region name. For brevity, should be formatted as a piped link, e.g. [[Japan|JP]].
  • It is also possible to combine multiple regions in this parameter, for release dates which are the same between several regions -- e.g. [[Europe|EU]] / [[North America|NA]]
date
Release date (should not be wikilinked).

Using three parameters (for backwards compatibility) {{Video game release | 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.
date
Release date (should not be wikilinked).
