Other countries enjoy the sport of soccer?! I can’t even begin to fathom such an outlandish claim. Enthusiasm for soccer outside of the United States — utterly preposterous. Still, that’s what Hothead Games is banking on, apparently, with the news that today Big Win Soccer has received localizations in French, German, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Korean, and Simplified Chinese. I don’t think they even have soccer in a lot of those countries. Now, football, there’s a sport they love.
From the press release:
The update includes the game’s localization in French, Italian, German, and Spanish, just in time for the Euro 2012 football championship build up. These European nations can now battle it out for the crowning glory in their own languages. Also included in the update is language localization for Japanese, Korean and Simplified Chinese.
The game will also be released for the first time in Japan, China, South Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Hong Kong, and Singapore.
Well, I guess anything’s possible. Good luck, Hothead!
