Sorry importers Gyakuten Saiban 4 is Japanese only

By Spencer . March 27, 2007 . 11:56am

The_importer sends us a note (thanks!) that Play-Asia updated their Gyakuten Saiban 4 product page with the words “Japanese language support ONLY” in bold. Previous Gyakuten Saiban (Ace Attorney series) games have had an English language option and perhaps importers were expecting (hoping?) that Gyakuten Saiban 4 was going to include one too. While disappointing […]
