Microsoft still doesn't understand the Japanese market, that's why they'll never gain ground there. Japanese gamers are nerds in every sense of the word. Plus this game is not the classic RPG style that japanese love so much. Japanese gamers like visual novels, simplistic hack-n-slash. What we find silly is awesome to japanese gamers.

But this game seems to be more aimed at western gamers who like action-RPG. Also this game's characters seem western. Japanese gamers won't support western made games over homemade games.

WHY DOESN'T MICROSOFT GET A JAPANESE GAME COMPANY TO MAKE JAPANESE GAMERS? they are the ones who understand the market the most right?? they should stop trying to make games aimed at japanese market with the intent of releasing it in western market also. They'll never succeed like that. Jpanese gamers have weird taste, trust me!!!
