Great to see this series get in the hands of even more people. But the half assed throwaway reveal was kinda insulting.

No point in making a huge red carpet announcement out of it. Its significant announcement no doubt but no need for MS to pat themselves on the back for it.

Not saying it needed red carpet treatment but it literally had the least amount of attention put into it out of anything else they showed, if they really want to make an effort towards gaining more favor from Japanese devs you'd think they would at least give it a bit more than just wedging a trailer between two others and not saying a word about it.

I can think of a lot of things that MS pats itself on the back for, which aren't really worth doing so. A game announcement of three games with a cult following, which has seen an increase in popularity over the past few years, all coming to game pass and getting releases otherwise, is something I feel they should spend some time on, otherwise, it's just saying, "Oh yeah, we have that", but not showing much initiative to really sell the game(or service that it's on).

Good. XBO owners better play this series. They are a big reason why I love the PS4.

It really is a great series to play, just about to finish kiwami. Loved Type 0,and Majima's story, after he instantly became my favorite character. Kudos for those who take advantage...

I actually have a ps4 and xbox and was going to pick this game up at some point. i'll just wait till it's on gamepass now

I do hope they adopt it and start liking it. Sega has always been kind of tenuous with localizing it, and a larger fan base for the game could help alleviate that. Game has a cult following, which is growing, but the sales are still borderline, and it wouldn't take much to have them change their mind
