Just thought “hey, maybe there should be something just for Japanese/Asian games/news that happen to be on or coming to Xbox”

Some may deserve their own thread, whilst other gems could go here.


I'll believe it when I see it. And with so many 3rd party Japanese studios and publishers outright skipping Xbox, its hard to take any xbox exec at their word on this.

Xbox Japanese Team Expanding, Working with Devs on “Groundbreaking,” “Large Budget” Games

Japan has always been Xbox’s Achilles heel, with Microsoft never being able to crack the market, likely because their systems are always short on Japanese-developed games. Xbox boss Phil Spencer has mentioned multiple times he’d like to expand his Japanese development capabilities, but aside from picking up Tango Gameworks in their purchase of Bethesda, all the big talk has come to naught.

Well, while Microsoft probably isn’t going to be buying Capcom or Square Enix anytime soon, it seems they have some irons in the fire. Head of Xbox Game Studios Publishing (the arm of XGS that works with third-party devs) in Japan, Matt Smith, recently tweeted that his team is expanding and they’re looking for devs to help third parties with some “truly groundbreaking [Xbox] product.”

For sure a lot of buzzwords used. "Top class", "ground breaking"... that has ZERO meaning.

I believe it when I see some gameplay.

I really like the look of Asterigos: Curse of the Stars. Reminds me ALOT of Immortals: Fenix rising.
