CD Projekt RED, the creators of the story-driven, open world fantasy RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, would like to announce its publishing partnership with Spike Chunsoft. With its established position in the Japanese market and its deep understanding of the core values CD Projekt RED represents, Spike Chunsoft will help The Witcher 3 reach Japanese gamers on next-generation consoles.
Spike Chunsoft did an amazing job launching The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings for Xbox 360 in the Japanese market, which is why we’re very excited to announce the continuation of our partnership. We’re thrilled that they see the same potential we do in the open world and novel-quality narrative we aim to deliver with The Witcher 3 and are willing to partner with us to launch the game on both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, said Michał Nowakowski, Vice President of Business Development and Member of the Board, CD Projekt RED.
We’re honored to have the opportunity to work with CD Projekt RED on the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in Japan. RPGs have always been a prominent part of the Japanese video game landscape. Although more and more quality western RPGs are now localized into Japanese, most gamers in Japan are still unaware of them. I strongly believe that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will redefine the western RPG for Japanese gamers, said Satoru Honma, International Business Development Producer, Spike Chunsoft.
Spike Chunsoft will be responsible for the promotion and distribution of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft in Japan.
