I'd think that it's unlikely to be released in Germany, since that country is overly sensitive to WW2/Nazi images and references.

Thanks for your interest!

Today we are sending the wholesale offer to German distributors. I hope the game will be available in Germany soon.

I hope the game does get released in Germany, but see this link: http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/wolfenstein-new-order-released-germ...

"Unlike films and other works of art, video games in Germany are forbidden to use such symbols and references as they are classified in Germany as toys and not media art."

R2R is not a toy. The suggested age 14+ is intentional.
We have tried to avoid using any Nazi symbol in the game (we are using the Wehrmacht cross instead).

I don't see any reasons why "Race to the Rhine" should not be released in germany because I didn't see a single Swastika or SS-rune in the yet-published pictures and rules. Very farsighted in my view.

You are at Essen I suppose? Can I buy a copy there?

If you know an Italian retailer who might be interested, just tell them about the game. This is the best way for everyone to get the game. Spread the word

If there aren't any WW2/Nazi images and references on the box, no problem (and i bought a lot of WW2 wargames here in Germany)!
