Batman: Arkham Knight Will Be PS4 Exclusive in Japan, at Least For Now
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Japan announced today with a press release that Batman: Arkham Knight will be exclusive for PS4 in Japan.
The game will follow Destiny‘s footsteps, and will be released a month after its North American launch, on July 2nd. It’ll cost 8,208 Yen taxes included (just north of $80). The press release does not make any mention of collector’s editions.
In addition to the release announcement, we also learn that pre-orders will be available in the archipelago of the rising sun on September 17th. The local version of the game will be fully localized, including Japanese voice acting.
Interestingly, the title was announced as part of the local Xbox One line-up during the console’s presentation press conference a couple months ago, and it’s still listed in Microsoft’s local website, but apparently Warner Bros. changed plans about it.
The game’s official Japanese site indeed displays only the PS4 version. The press release did not specify whether the exclusivity for Sony’s console is permanent or temporary.
