In Japan, the Xbox One is not really successful and weekly, the console manages to barely reach a three-digit sales figure. Whether the shooter “Gears of War 4” helps the Japanese audience to boost sales, we will soon learn. Already at the weekend there was a first indication that the shooter in Japan will start after the launch in the west last year for PC and Xbox One was initiated.
The note was first made via a teaser trailer, which was provided on the Japanese Xbox channel of the video platform Youtube. The video, which is also embedded below these lines, shows that “Gears of War 4” was equipped with the “CERO Z” rating (18 years and over). The rating “CERO Z” is considered very rare in Japan and most publishers try to avoid it.
After some speculation, Microsoft has spoken out on the subject and confirmed that “Gears of War 4” was actually prepared for the Japanese market. There is also a publication date. The shooter will appear in the Land of the Rising Sun on 25 May 2017 for both Xbox One and the PC. In addition, it was said that “Gears of War 4” for the Japanese market no cuts had to be made.
