Phil Spencer, the head of Xbox, has worked hard to get the support of various Japanese studios. While Xbox One has not had a major impact on the Japanese market, it is a fact that console users want to enjoy a wider catalog of games from that region.

E3 2018 is just around the corner, so Spencer was questioned on Twitter about the presence of Japanese titles at his conference this year. The good news is that there will be news in the event. Specifically, Spencer affirmed that, if everything goes as planned, they will present JRPG in June.

“As of now, yes. Things can change but like last year I wanted to make sure we supported our Japanese publishers on our stage and this year we are working to do the same. It’s important to us,” the manager wrote.

On the other hand, a fan asked him about the possibilities of seeing Yakuza on Xbox One. Spencer did not confirm anything but said that SEGA has many franchises that he would like to see on the console.

Spencer said that in the future they may work again with a Japanese developer. This with the intention of bringing an exclusive title to Xbox One. He also reaffirmed his commitment to Japanese studios.

“The support from the Japanese publishers has been a focus and it’s great to see Xbox customers buying and playing the games. I heard the feedback early in the role that we were missing a lot of 3P games. More to do,” Phil Spencer added. So, it only remains to wait to know the surprises prepared by the company.

Microsoft has already revealed its plans for E3 2018, so we know that its conference will be held on Sunday, June 10. The company affirmed that its presence in the event will be the largest one until now.
