Earlier this year, Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, made a trip to Japan to meet with third party distributors and Japanese developers. The objective of the meeting was to increase the interest in bringing and creating titles for Xbox One, especially for the upcoming release of Xbox One X, the company’s new console.
Apparently, Spencer’s efforts have borne some fruit, so the manager said he will continue to work to bring the best of the Japanese market to Xbox One. Aaron Greenberg, chief marketing officer of Xbox, recently talked on the issue and assured that console users can expect more Japanese titles.
During a meeting with DualShockers, Greenberg said that such titles will have a lasting and beneficial impact for Xbox One. He added that Microsoft has always had great respect for Japanese developers, who have collaborated with the company on both internal and external.
According to Greenberg, Japanese creators are interested in Xbox One X, especially since they often experiment with the new technology. For this reason, they will continue to bet on this market.
Finally, the manager raised the issue of cancellation of Scalebound. As you recall, Microsoft extended the trademark last May, so there was a possibility that the name will be used in the future. Unfortunately, Greenberg confirmed that with a no, that the project with Hideki Kamiya was canceled altogether.
Among the lineup of Japanese titles coming to Xbox One is Code Vein, Dynasty Warriors 9 and Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet.
