Rocksmith Heads to Japan

By Rebecca Smith, 4 years ago
Ubisoft Japan has today confirmed that Rocksmith will be heading over to Japan. This is the first time that the game has been confirmed for release outside of North America. As a game that allows players to plug in a guitar that they already own, players have been clamouring for the game to make the jump across the water to a region near them.

Unfortunately there is still no news on the hopes of the game receiving a European release. Until the lawsuit regarding the use of the name "Rocksmith" is resolved, there is little chance of the game being released in this region.

The release date for Japan is "still pending", but we'll let you know more when it is announced.

I hope this will make it to Europe. Come on, just release it over here please.
Just my opinion.

I ordered this last week through eBay. Cost me a lot of money, but it's worth the while.

I'm getting fed up waiting. Can't Ubisoft just tweak the name instead of losing money? =[

My smithing skill is 100, so that would be ideal...

Same here lol. I think they should call it GuitarBand or Rock Hero, can't see any problems with either of those =]

They could go all middle ages on our ass and rename it 'Ye olde Rock smithy'

Rocksmith isn't even that good a name tbh but I guess they want to build a brand out of it so it makes sense to stick to their guns I suppose. Though it is taking WAYYYYY too long to sort out

I reckon we should just boycott it when it releases in Europe. That'll show them.

Please let this mean JRock, and JMetal. Heck even JPop if the guitar is fun enough. RB was never brought to Japan so we never got any good Japanese music, not including the amazing free X-Japan song...
