Torchlight launch in Japan cancelled by Microsoft

Microsoft has cancelled the release of their much awaited and highly anticipated RPG Torchlight in Japan, the publisher pulled out the release at the very last minute. Reports are claiming that the launch of Torchlight was canned due to the discovery of a text bug that is there only in Japanese version of the game.


However Microsoft has given their clarification in this regard to MCV saying, "We made the decision to not launch Torchlight on Xbox LIVE Arcade in Japan due to localisation complexities; not due to bugs," the statement reads. "We apologise for any inconvenience."

Torchlight hits Xbox Live Arcade in Europe and the United States today.
