The console version of Overwatch is exclusive to PlayStation 4 in Japan

A decision that has been made with other video games in the Japanese territory.


Overwatch distribution in Japan will be handled by Square enix. The company announced after Blizzcon 2015 that it will be released exclusively on PlayStation 4, circumventing a software release on Xbox One.


Indeed, Square Enix is ​​the company that on other occasions has carried out similar actions in Japan with the Final Fantasy franchise; While the game was multiplatform around the world, in Japan Xbox users were without the opportunity to play it.


The publisher has taken advantage of the announcement to provide the Japanese dubbed version of the Overwatch trailer, which will arrive next year worldwide on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
