Famitsu print ad - Starlink: Battle for Atlas

Will it find success in Japan?

Starlink: Battle for Atlas still hasn't released in Japan, but it will be available soon. The game launches on April 25th, 2019. We already know the game hasn't done too well in the rest of the world, but I'm still holding out a sliver of hope for some sort of success in Japan. A top 10 showing at launch would be nice to see.


I find it incredibly unlikely for this game to do well in Japan. Even if you look at Star Fox, it's not that big of a series in Japan. Then you look that it's a Western open world game, with forced toys to life retail, and it's looking pretty bad for the Japanese release.

That and it sucks. And why do I have to have a 20 character comment?
