D&D Online headed to Japan

Japanese Internet company Sakura rolls 20-sided dice on localizing Turbine's MMORPG based on pen-and-paper game.

Japan may be known for being invaded by monsters such as Godzilla, King Ghidorah, and Gamera, but it's about to get a whole slew of new beasties to tangle with. Turbine Inc., a Massachusetts-based game publisher, today announced that Sakura Internet Inc. will distribute and help localize the PC massively multiplayer online game Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach for Japan. Sakura, an Internet telecom service, will be responsible for marketing, distributing, and maintaining the game in the region. D&D Online was released in the US in late February and was published by Atari.

Yes, great idea when Japan just got Square's newest MMO...Fantasy Earth. Great job, this is going to bomb worse than the 360 launch there.
