Rumour: Square Enix to publish Modern Warfare 2 in Japan

Unless something’s gone a bit wrong dans le Matrix, this teaser page on the Square Enix site probably means the publisher is handling the release of Modern Warfare 2 in Japan.

There’s a “2″ on it: it’s the same font at the MW2 logo. The giveaway is the Activision and Call of Duty copyright info at the page’s base.

We’re checking now.

    Good investment…I think. Not too sure how the Japanese view the FPS genre.

    I hope it’s true and I hope they make it turn-based.

    The original Gears of War managed to debut you in the Japanese charts for a few week. The genre isn’t huge in the country, but with a significantly popular title, even an unpopular genre can shine for a few weeks.

    I thought the Japanese hated this western FPS stuff?

    Edit: ignore me, just saw the previous comments. Oops.
