Gears of War 2 Getting Localized For Japan


gow2 Gears of War 2 banned in Japan? No way. Despite rumblings of being “indefinitely” not available Microsoft wouldn’t miss out on selling Gears of War 2 in Japan. As a niche title for a small console base Gears of War didn’t do bad in Japan. In the future Microsoft of Japan will release a properly localized version of Gears 2 with Japanese dialogue and perhaps some censorship. Cutting off heads doesn’t roll well over there. Of course Locust hunters in Japan have the option of skipping the Japanese version and tracking down a copy of the region free Asian version to satisfy their bloodlust. Since we already have Gears of War 2 I only hope this announcement means more rib tickling viral videos from Microsoft of Japan’s advertising department.
