Call Of Duty: Elite Abandoning Japanese

The much ballyhooed Call of Duty: Elite online service will not be available in Japan. Square Enix, Call of Duty's publisher in Japan, revealed that a Japanese version isn't happening due to localisation issues.

According to Square Enix, the game's original publisher, Activision, worked hard to get localised versions of Elite released in different territories. The sticking point was that Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 is available as a dubbed as well as a subtitled game in Japan, complicating the Elite service in the region.

When Modern Warfare 2 was released in Japan, Japanese gamers were furious about the crummy localisation. For Modern Warfare 3, Square Enix offered two versions: dubbed or subtitled.

Square Enix did mention that information regarding downloadable content released via Elite will be made in the future.

    Dubbed or subbed... because having an "audio" and "subtitle" option is obviously too hard.

      Remember - this is SQEX we're talking about. Not much of their corporate management makes sense.
