Japanese Voiceover Pack Coming to the PC Version of Tomb Raider

Rather than waiting to localize Tomb Raider into Japanese, Square Enix will sell a Japanese voiceover pack for the Steam version already available in Japan through the Western stores. That part is cool and kind of forward-thinking.

The part that’s less cool: the pack costs $30, on top of the full-price purchase of the game. The massive upcharge brings the US Steam version into price parity with the Japanese retail release, which shares an April 25 release date with the VO pack, and retails for ¥7,980 ($80). Yes, video games are always too expensive in Japan. And Square Enix is artificially ensuring that’s the case for Tomb Raider.

It’s hard to figure out who this Japanese Language Pack is for, if it comes out the same day as the localized PC release for the same effective price.
