Visual Novel Publisher Is Bringing Telltale’s Walking Dead Game To Japan

image Cyberfront Japan is an interesting company. They published Mamorukun Cursed for PS3 and brought Aselia: The Eternal to PSP. Cyberfront also localizes Western games like Skullgirls and Sniper 2, but their staples are visual novels like code_18 from Virtue’s Last Reward writer Kotoaro Uchikoshi.

 

Since Spike Chunsoft focuses on action games, Cyberfront is the best choice for The Walking Dead. And according to this week’s magazine leaks, Cyberfront is the publisher of the Japanese version.

 

The Walking Dead will be released in Japan for PlayStation 3 on December 5.

    Hm, now that I think about it. Does Japan even care or know about The Walking Dead franchise?

    • Brion Valkerion

      Yes lol, all seasons have aired in the country and are out on bluray/dvd same as everywhere else. Highly rated and loved too!

      Besides we know Japan loves their dramas, and this series is nothing but drama lol.

    So this game will be about zombie Chocobos?
    The Warking dead.
    I’m kidding of course, but this is pretty neat news for Japan and see how well received it will be over there.

      That was pretty random, but it brought a smile to my face.

  • Crimson_Cloud

    Man they will love the hell out of this game. Since they love drama and tense situations.

  • leingod

    One of the best point n click adventure games this generation. Good thing they’ll be able to play it.

    • Aoshi00

      Glad Jpn finally gets to experience this game too, wonder if it would be dubbed since u really need to make quick decisions. 400 days was a good dlc too can’t wait till second season. Also looking forward to the wolf among us. Telltale has mastered the story telling in this kind of game

  • Isaac Sanchez

    They should release the vita version in Japan. It would be more popular.
