Life is Strange is being dubbed in Japanese

Ma-chan and Kuro-chan

Folks in Japan will soon get to find out what it’s like to be a teenage woman with time-manipulation powers. Square Enix is releasing Life is Strange with a Japanese voice dub.

This trailer was recently uploaded to Square Enix’s Japanese YouTube channel. The description only lists PC, PS3, and PS4 as platforms; Xbox’s omission isn’t much of a shock given its unpopularity in Japan.

There’s potential for this to be hella awkward. Life is Strange notably has some cringe-worthy dialogue that doesn’t sound natural in its native English. Now, that’s going to be translated to Japanese where it’ll be further removed from making any sense.
