After having teased it earlier today, Microsoft has officially verified that Gears of War 4 will be releasing in Japan nevertheless. We had previously reported on the Xbox Japan channel posting a gears of War 4 trailer without description the other day- this was weird, since Gears of War 4 had hence far been incapable to release in Japan, with its fierce web content evidently causing problems with local censorship and also score boards.
However, it looks like whatever those issues were have actually been fixed- Gears of War 4 will certainly release in Japan on Xbox One as well as Windows 10, without any kind of censorship whatsoever, having accomplished a ranking of CERO Z (which indicates the game is only for 18 year olds or older- and also the score will certainly be legitimately applied). The game will have English VO with Japanese captions, and will certainly introduce on May 25.
While the Xbox One’s fortunes in Japan are unlikely to transform as a result of this, Gears of Battle is reasonably preferred in Japan- and the few individuals who perhaps got an Xbox One expecting the most up to date instalments in their preferred Xbox franchise business will certainly doubtless be happy at this news regardless.
