This template is used in conjunction with the {{Infobox VG}} infobox 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, they will not be sorted in any particular order):

JP=date
Japanese region release date.
NA=date
North American release date.
PAL=date
PAL region release date. (or, if they differ: EU=date: European release date, AUS=date: Australasian (Australia and New Zealand) release date.)
INT=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 }}

region
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. [[Europe|EU]] / [[North America|NA]]
date
Release date (should not 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.
date
Release date (should not be wikilinked for date formatting preferences)
