According to Kotaku they have recieved word from the Xbox Japan team that Oblivion will becoming to Japan. No specific release time has been released however they said it will be sometime next year.
...talk about "late to the party". :/
Well if its gonna help sell the Xbox 360 in Japan than so be it.
they might not mind as much a we over here might do as they are not such graphics whores. Although Oblivion looks good it will be overshadowed greatly by then, luckily in Japan it's gameplay over graphics.
We've been rabidly eating up JRPGs, it's time we shared the love and showed them what a good western RPG is like.
I think this is a wasted effort. Unless Bethesda makes it a turn-based RPG, the japanese won't consider it.
now bring Blue Dragon over here pronto!
do not deserve to have such an awesome game. Might sell ten thousand copies.
Western companies don't have a very good reputation when it comes to RPG's. Look at games like Evergrace, Eternal Ring, Summoner and Azurik for proof. I don't blame the Japanese for not buying them.
look at the games you mentioned, thats why.
