The director of the game Hideki Kamiya share this thoughts on Twiiter:
He is responding to this message from the Platinum Games CEO :
Well I guess you have to wait for NieR , Lost Order and Granblue. I don’t know what the problem is but I think because Xbox One doesn’t sell well in Japan that’s the reason. It may not appeal to Japanese Market, if it’s released in PS4 or Steam it might sell well. Are you guys sad about this and what are your thoughts on it.
