Like Siliconera mentioned last night, PlayStation 4 will launch in Asia regions in December. Their PS4 launch frame lineup has 20 games and it is pretty similar to what Western gamers will get. The one exception is Dynasty Warriors 8 with Xtreme Legends, which has been announced for Japan and confirmed for Asia as a launch window title.

    Lots of Western games there.

    • Romored

      And mostly fps, action or sport games. It doesn’t seem too varied.

      • xAtKx

        I didn’t even know asian countries got madden games.

        • Longsun_Zhao

          I remember this bizarre Xbox promo that saw Western-only games like Madden released in Japan untranslated. I always imagined some little 8 year old Japanese kid tearing up on Xbox Live Madden ’05.

    • Fox

      I can only assume it’s because the Japanese titles haven’t really been announced yet. I can’t imagine the PS4 launching without at least one (bad) JRPG or Gundam game.

      • Brien B.

        There have been a ton of Japanese titles announced… but they’re all coming on February 22, when the PS4 releases in Japan.

        • Lucky Dan

          Gotta see how many make it on time within the short time frame.

          My guess would be 0

    • meow

      I’m surprised we haven’t seen a Ridge racer yet

  • pimpalicious

    Not knocking the PS4 as I plan to get one eventually but DW8 is the game I’m most interested(second would be Knack and that’s low on my radar) so I’ll be waiting until games like MGSV, FFXV, etc are closer to release.

    edit: I take that back partly, Resogun looks cool.

  • RichyGaming

    Guess Warframe will have to wait.

  • Slayven19

    Not going to lie, its funny seeing madden in that list. I knew they get NBA games but I didn’t know american football had any sort of popularity in japan. I thought it might be japan least liked sport(and it probably is) but what’evs. Sad that the majority of the games releasing aren’t even new Ip’s.

    • Brion Valkerion

      Asia and Japan are different regions when it comes to media.

  • Sardorim

    Dynasty Warriors 8 + XL is a good bundle, I expect it to sell in Japan.

  • YoshEE

    I hope to see Dynasty Warriors 8 with Xtreme Legends for U.S too. T.T

    • Fox

      Only if it’s a cheap upgrade or something. After all that goddamn DLC-milking and delaying for DW8, it would (will) be profoundly asinine to try and sell as the PS4 version full price.

      • YoshEE

        That so true. I was disappointed that the DLC for DW7 doesnt transfer to DW8.

      • Sardorim

        Well, the full version of DW8 is coming with XL and it will take advantage, somewhat, of the higher specs on the PS4.

    • Fox

      Only if it’s a cheap upgrade or something. After all that goddamn DLC-milking and delaying for DW8, it would (will) be profoundly asinine to try and sell as the PS4 version full price.

  • Asia isn’t Japan thank god

  • leingod

    The Nasty Warriors is probably the only game in that list that Asia cares about. No wonder it’s not releasing in Japan yet.

  • ragingmerifes

    No inFamous? Weird.

    • WhyWai

      Infamous is not launch game.. it’s coming on Feb 2014…

      • ragingmerifes

        My bad. I read Japan instead of Asia. And inFamous is a launch title in Japan.

  • Heropon

    Nothing Impressive . Wait until the price drop and release of JRPG

  • WhyWai

    woohoo! cant wait!

  • akiko_sakuraba

    Except for AC and DW, looks pretty disappointing for a launch title list. Which is why I’m not buying the system at launch.

  • Alexander Marquis Starkey

    I don’t know about you folks, but, WATCHDOGS, IS GOING TO BE AWESOME, I’ve loved all the street racing games that were announced for PS4, the lego marvel games is going to sell to somebody because they Lego series are usually damn good games, and of course DW8…now if only I had money.
