It seems Sony and Microsoft have a slew of good news post Chinese New Years. The Chinese State Administration of Film, Radio, Television, Press and Publication has approved a bevy of video games for publication in the People's Republic of China.

According to the document attained by Chinese media, a total of 12 games were approved during the span of January to February. All of the titles are old games already released in the West, but their approval in China means legally localised versions for locals who can't read Japanese or English (or haven't purchased a Hong Kong version).

Of the games approved, the highlights are Final Fantasy X/X2 Remaster, Knack, Farming Simulator 2014, Trials Fusion, Child of Light, Rayman Legends, Your Shape Fitness and Dynasty Warriors 7.

Sony seems to have gotten the better end of this deal compared to Microsoft. Final Fantasy X/X2 Remaster, Knack and Dynasty Warriors 7 were announced as launch titles for the PlayStation 4 in China, a console that has yet to launch...

Here's the complete list of games that received approval. Quick note, all names are in Chinese.
