I think I'm turning JapaneseVote Now!

With a 2-page spread in Japanese gaming bible Famitsu, Bionic Commando has now been officially "launched" in the land of the rising sun, where no doubt we will have an uphill battle. Traditionally, western developed games only perform to a fraction of what their Japanese-developed counterparts do.

But we have pulled out all the stops. A new Japanese logo, Japanese localized text, and even a new gameplay video (also currently playing on the home page) that shows off some of the newer and cooler animations of the game.

We've had articles in all the key publications, which is where you get most of your promotion done since community sites don't do particularly well either comparatively; and we've opened up a nice little Japanese version of the website.

However, I think one of my happiest moments was when our customer service team called me up and asked for an answer to a question that a customer had recently posed -- "Are there any Japanese people on the design team?"

My reply?

"Why of course there are."

Short, sweet, and simple. It's nice to have a little interest from the Japanese fan base, too.

Arigatoo Gozaimasu!
