Phil Spencer, the head of Xbox, and his vice president, Sarah Bond, are totally committed to the Japanese market.
Xbox is having a hard time establishing itself in the Japanese market, something that, among other things, derives from the lack of support that Japanese developers have received from Microsoft. This is something that has been changing and improving over the last few years, and now Phil Spencer, the head of Xbox, and Sarah Bond, his vice president, have ensured that many more games developed by Japanese studios will come to Xbox in the future. .
Not surprisingly, in a recent interview with IGN , Bond assured that there are already more than 150 Japanese games on Xbox Series X/S and that many more will come in the future . So much so that Spencer commented that Microsoft is working hard to create games that are attractive to Japanese audiences and that “many Japanese game creators” are in the process of bringing their games to the Xbox ecosystem in the near future.
A good example of this would be the recent announcement that Kojima Productions is working on creating an Xbox-exclusive game that will harness the power of the cloud, not to mention that many Japanese publishers like Atlus are starting to bring their titles to the platforms. from Microsoft, something that should help make the Xbox ecosystem much more attractive to the Japanese public.
Taking advantage of all this, we remind you that Persona 5 Royal, one of the best JRPGs of all time, will arrive on Xbox Game Pass for both PC and Xbox consoles on October 21.
