Capping off what must be a particularly rough week for Xbox’s team in Japan, Warner Bros has announced that Batman: Arkham Knight will be a PlayStation 4 exclusive in the Land of the Rising Sun. There’s no word just yet on whether this will be timed, but the title has been removed completely from Microsoft’s website, suggesting potentially that the publisher got spooked by the system’s atrocious launch numbers.
This isn’t the first multiformat title to score a PS4 only release in the East, as Destiny will also deploy as an exclusive on Sony’s next-gen system. Unfortunately for fans of the Dark Knight, they’ll have to wait until 2nd July to get their grubby mitts on the game, where it will retail for ¥8,208 ($76). While this may be a decent coup for the PlayStation maker, however, it’s the likes of Dragon Quest: Heroes and Final Fantasy XV that are going to prove more important to the platform in the long run.
