We learned the Japanese release date for Journey last night -- March 15 -- and this morning, we've got the U.S. release date, as well as some new details on the game. You will be able to download Journey from the PlayStation Store for $14.99 starting March 13th, 2012.

- We're suckers for multiplayer games where players do something other than shoot one another.
- Our Journey previews are inspirational and inspiring -- the game looks amazing.
- We've seen the video:
- We've read the blog post on PlayStation's blog. It says all the right things. Things like:
"You wake alone and surrounded by miles of burning, sprawling desert, and soon discover the looming mountaintop which is your goal. Faced with rolling sand dunes, age-old ruins, caves and howling winds, your passage will not be an easy one. The goal is to get to the mountaintop, but the experience along the way is discovering who you are, what this place is, and what your purpose is. Travel and explore this ancient, mysterious world alone, or with a stranger you meet along the way. Soar above ruins and glide across sands as you discover the secrets of a forgotten civilization. Featuring stunning visuals, haunting music, and unique online gameplay, Journey delivers an experience like no other."
Do you share G4's interest and excitement, or do you respond to Journey with a heartfelt "meh?"
