Killzone: Shadow Fall to Have Japan-Exclusive Content

Killzone: Shadow Fall

Japan will get exclusive content for Killzone: Shadow Fall and the voice cast has been revealed.

While most shooter fans are already playing Guerilla Games' debut effort, Killzone: Shadow Fall, on the PlayStation 4, the title has yet to make its debut in Japan. To make the wait a little sweeter, Sony has confirmed that the Japanese version of the game will have exclusive content such as "drone skins" and "collaborative content" exclusive to the country.

Unfortunately, no further details have been shared regarding these exclusive items. In the same announcement, Sony Japan has also revealed the cast of actors who will dub the multiplayer of Killzone: Shadow Fall, and it's listed below.

Shuichi Ikeda (Char Aznable in Mobile Suit Gundam)

Hochu Otsuka (Jiraya in Naruto)

Yuko Kaida (Vivian Squall in Killer is Dead)

Tomokazu Sugita (Alvin in Tales of Xillia)

Fumihiko Tachiki (Kratos in Tales of Symphonia)

Atsuko Tanaka (Kaine in Nier)

Kenyu Horiuchi (Raiden in Metal Gear Solid 4)

Norio Wakamoto (Dracula in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night)

Published by Sony, Killzone: Shadow Fall was released in November of last year for North America, and will be released on February 22 in Japan.

You can read The Escapist's review of Killzone: Shadow Fall where it was mentioned that while it won't win over new fans, it's still "a fine shooter with a fun story, and a multiplayer mode that fans can sink hours and hours into."

So since the PS4 is region-free, does this mean importing Killzone: Shadows Fall will net me access to these special new features? It seems like kind of a waste to import a game like this but, exclusive content is exclusive content...or would I be locked out of some content anyway because of an inability to connect to Japanese servers?

It just makes me wonder what parts Char and Kaine will be playing, both of them are excellent voice actors.

The PS4 is region free so importing would be an option. Now with that said; I do have Killzone: Shadowfall, however I don't play the online much and so things like Drone Skins I'm aware of, I just don't know how to unlock them. They may be DLC, may be other content, I'm not sure as the drone skins are shown (but locked) at the multiplayer menu. If it's DLC you would need a Japanse PSN account and method of payment, if it's simply unlockable you should be good. I doubt they'd be able to keep you from accessing the content based on where you IP address says you are.

Region-locking and region-exclusive content: THE STUPIDEST IDEA IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND. I mean, I can understand locking purchases from one region to other so people would buy in their country's price, but what the fuck is up with locking content and entire games? This is stupid. It's basically nationalism.
