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.The game wounldn’t 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.
