Microsoft brings Western RPGs to Japan

Fable 2 and Mass Effect making the trip over


Fable 2 and Mass Effect have been confirmed for Japanese release for some time now, but Microsoft at last solidified their releases a bit as part of its Xbox 360 RPG Premier 2008 press conference in Tokyo today.

Sandwiched between presentations on Tales of Vesperia and a trio of Square Enix titles, Microsoft Game Studios marketing manager Fumihiro Yamaguchi took a few minutes to introduce the two titles. Unlike the Tales of Vesperia and Infinite Undiscovery presentations, these two introductions did not have gameplay demos. Instead, Yamaguchi provide quick summaries following English-language trailers.

Mass Effect and Fable 2. Can you figure out which is which?

Of the two, Fable 2 was confirmed for a 2008 release while Mass Effect was left as TBA.
