Despite only launching on Xbox Game Pass yesterday, it seems Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age has already been removed from the service in Japan, just 24 short hours later.
While many fans around the world have eagerly anticipated the game joining Xbox Game Pass, players in Japan were saddened to learn that its “addition in Japan is undecided”, according to a translated tweet. Microsoft acknowledged that the game was made temporarily available for a short period, and apologised for the “incorrect posting of [Final Fantasy XII] title and the announcement of incorrect information by [the] company”.
昨日『FINAL FANTASY XII THE ZODIAC AGE』が一時的にXbox Game Pass のラインアップに追加されましたが、正しくは日本国内での追加は未定となります。
この度は、弊社による本タイトルの誤掲載および誤った情報の告知により混乱を招いてしまい誠に申し訳ございませんでした。— Xbox Japan (@Xbox_JP) February 12, 2021
Fans responding to the tweet are understandably confused as to why the game can’t be added in Japan, but seemingly accepted Microsoft’s apology. Hopefully it’s something that can come to the service in Japan in the near future.
