Why do some Japanese games have English audio with Japanese subtitles?

I’ve wondered why this was the case. For authenticity, if the game is set in a Western country? To make the game feel like a Hollywood movie?

This is especially curious when it’s a game that has never left Japan. I can’t seem to find the reason.

Because there are lot more people speaking english than jananese in the world. The studio usually only have budget/time to make only one voiceover so they choose english in order to most of their costumers understand it.

The subtitles are far less expensive to make

What games released in only Japan have English voice dialogue with Japanese subtitles? Just curious
