An English version of the official website is available here.
Considering that the announcement was made in Hong Kong, at the moment we don’t know whether it’ll be actually published in the west or not, but it seems very likely. In any case, it’s rather easy to purchase games from the Hong Kong marketplace. At the very least now we know that we’ll be able to play the game without needing to learn moon run… ahem… Kanji.
In order to make up for the poor Japanese sales of the former Xbox One exclusive Chaos;Child 5pb. opted to release the game on PlayStation platforms. Looks like with Psycho-Pass, that was heavily co-marketed with Microsoft, they’re choosing a different route, tackling a much larger market, at least for now.
