** They effectively skipped it in favour of a protracted localisation of VideoGame/DragonQuestXI, which took ''an entire year'' in localisation, which would have been easily alleviated by simply releasing this game.

Added DiffLines:

* ExecutiveMeddling: Square Enix seem to be out to sabotage the game's chances of success outside of Japan, after it got a poor reception in Japan.
** The game has an IP block, which means that ''only'' the Japanese player base can play it. The player base rose briefly when the block was dropped for a short period, but they just put it back up again.

** A recent update changed the original offline campaign into a side-quest in the online portion of the game, effectively rendering the fact it was the offline campaign logistically useless, and further incensing the western fanbase who, now, can't even play the game '''''offline''''' any more.

Added DiffLines:

** What also didn't help the game was that, due to it's implied failure in Japan, as shown below, it never was considered for localisation, and in fact, [[ExecutiveMeddling was saddled with an IP block and later it's offline trial was removed.]]
