Japan: Xbox 360-Fans want The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion

28.07.06 - The role playing game The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion of Bethesda is already available in the USA and Europe, a release in Japan is,so far,however not yet planned. Therefore Japanese Xbox 360 fans started a Petition, in which they want to Microsoft and/or Bethesda to bring The Elder Scrolls IV:Oblivion in a completely localized version to Japan.

Hmm. Perhaps it could cause a whole 500 systems to be sold in japan.

Honestly, I doubt even a heavy hitter like Oblivion could make a dent in that market.

I know it wont do anything out there, but atleast give the few japanese owners that actually purchased the 360 what they want.

Anyway Blue Dragon is what will sell well for the 360 in Japan not sure how many it will sell though of course, but it should hit 600,000 by december 2007. To be honest if it was a ps3 title it would have been guaranteed to sell 2 million copies within its first week.

its a double edge situation, why would Bethesdasoft go to the trouble of localising oblivion, the money and manhours spent wouldnt be cost effective, seeing as there are about a few thousand 360 sold in japan!

they should start buying more consoles then they might get more localised games

I thought it was already available in Japan. :(

Would have figured a big game like Oblivion would have been sold everywhere a 360 is available.

Why would the Japanese want a good game like Oblivion? I thought they only liked queer RPG's like umm... Enchant Arm

Why don't they learn English then and import the game? Problem solved..

We don't get localized Dutch versions, and the funny thing is, we don't even want to have that.. Now if the Germans, French and Italians etc would do the same we wouldn't have these stupid disadvantages in Europe concerning releasedates and prices of games etc..

That would be a waste of time, why would anyone want to learn another language to play a game?

The question is rather; how does anyone avoid learning english? It's absolutely everywhere!

I don't even think that's what's keeping the japanese from playing western releases, the fact that most of them don't run on their 360 does. Also, some people wouldn't know how to import a game even if they wanted to.

Take one 360, add some chopped PS3, stir in some Wii, a sprinkling of DS Lite. Enjoy :)

The PS3 version will hit Japan before a localization version on the 360 ever hits Japan.

Um i can understand basic Japanese, for that reason.

It's not such a bad thing to learn another language (English isn't the only language out there ya know) and many Japanese people are taught English as a second language at school. (Australia is only a hop skip and a jump away)

Good luck with that Optimus speaking/understanding Japanese is one thing, reading Kanji is something completely different.

Yea (do-ra-go-n) is the Romanji/Katakana way to spell the English word.

Ryuu is the real word for Dragon in Japanese.

Although being a western name "Aoi Doragon 青 <Kanji - Ao> い <Hiragana - I> ドラゴン <Katakana - doragon>" is probably the correct way of saying it. (well there's your first lesson)

To read Japanese you have to learn 46 Hiragana 46 Katakana (each with another 60 variations) and there are over 2500 Kanji some with up to 10 different meaning/sounds per symbol.

Gambatte!
