It's no Monster Hunter, and it certainly doesn't replicate the success of the series in the West, but for a franchise that you might imagine Japanese gamers would shun, it puts up competent numbers.

So it's no real surprise to see Andriasang report that two versions of Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 will be released in the region. One will feature subtitles and its native English dialogue, while another will be dubbed. Both will be published by Square Enix.

There's one catch — if you want the dubbed version of the game you'll have to wait until December. The subtitled version will launch on November 17th.

There's a Japanese trailer after the jump.
