Dynasty Warriors dev: Xbox One needs earlier Japan launch

If Xbox One is to be a Japanese success, it can't be late to the party

Dynasty Warriors director Atsushi Miyauchi has said that if Microsoft has any hope of gaining success in Japan, it needs a simultaneous launch, one much nearer to the North American release date. 

"I think Microsoft gave up promoting and presenting the Xbox 360 in Japan, it didn’t keep the momentum there," he told Polygon. "And if they can release the Xbox One as close as possible to [the] North American release date, I think that would make a really big difference this time around.

"Not a lot of information has come to the Japanese game developers. So I think at this point now we don’t have much information until they make an official presentation to us; then [developers] would understand what they will be able to do."

Given how the Xbox One was planning to release in far fewer territories than the Xbox 360, Microsoft seems to have given up on appealing to the world at large and cares almost entirely about America and Europe. If Microsoft's not even bothering to give Japanese developers basic information, it may not even care about success in the East, much less be inclined to listen to Miyauchi.
