Halo 5 Guardians Will be Localized in China With Dubbing and Subtitles

By   /   Sep 8, 2014

In less than 2 weeks, we will be seeing the release of Microsoft’s latest home console the Xbox One in China. The company is looking to make a strong impact on the market before its competitor Sony eventually gets there.

And to attract Chinese fans, Microsoft will be releasing a fully localized version of its flagship title Halo 5 Guardians in China. Which means that the title will come with Chinese dubbing and subtitles as well. The game is said to be dubbed in Mandarin Chinese which is largely spoken across northern and southern China.

After a 14 years ban, consumers in China will be able to get their hands on some gaming hardware. Microsoft is known to struggle in Japan and is already way behind Sony who claimed to have sold more than 10 millions consoles worldwide.

Hopefully, before the PS4 arrives, the Xbox One will gain some solid momentum. Localizing a AAA title like Halo 5 is a great step for the company which will help attract a lot of gamers.

Starting September 23, Xbox One without Kinect will be available to the Chinese consumers for the price of roughly $599 (¥3,699). That seems a bit much but we might see some price drops in the future.

Halo 5 Guardians is expected to come out for Xbox One in Fall 2015.
