The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition for Xbox 360 sets out to conquer Japan

CD Projekt RED announced today that The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition for Xbox 360 is now available in Japan.

Japanese players can play the game with a cinematic localization on their home entertainment system from Microsoft. The title is expected to be one of the largest Western hits on this market.

"Japan is perceived as a market ruled by local productions. Western brands need a lot of time to build a strong position there. The first feedback that we got shows that The Witcher 2 established a solid foothold and our first steps on this market are very promising for the future. I think that for some, The Witcher 2 will be perceived as another great example of the Polish culture, such as Chopin, whose music is very popular there. We expect that many Xbox 360 owners will buy our game and love what we have prepared for them" said Adam Kiciński CD Projekt RED's CEO.

The CD Projekt RED team visited Japan earlier and took part in one of the most popular gameplay shows -- Nico Nico. The show normally running for 60 minutes was extended to two hours by the hosts live, when many on-line commentators asked for more gameplay performed by The Witcher 2 dev team member. The last and fourth episode of the gameplay stream will be transmitted this Sunday with one of the dev's answering the viewers' questions via Skype.

Furthermore, Japan's largest gaming magazine Famitsu gave The Witcher 2 a platinum score award -- one of the highest distinctions ever given to a Western production. All four reviewers of the game gave it a 9 out of 10 score. "We think that all Xbox 360 owners in Japan should be interested in The Witcher 2. The game is unique on this platform and offers exceptional gameplay, that should attract a vast audience here" commented Mitsutoshi Sakurai, CEO of Spike Chunsoft, The Witcher's publisher in Japan.
