Until xbox starts getting Japanese games day and date with the likes of Nintendo and Sony, I'm loathe to call it a renaissance or resurgence.
Don’t forget a physical release as well….but they did get Scarlett nexus day one and they had marketing rights to it

You are correct, with Scarlett Nexus they had a marketing deal with.

That's the thing with Xbox and Japanese games. Outside of a few exceptions they don't get them at all or do get them but years down the road. If Xbox wants to compete with Sony and Nintendo, especially in Japan, that has to stop. They need day and date launches with the other consoles. Both huge AAA games and niche releases.

This is what I'm talking about. There's no real reason for this game to skip Xbox platforms, but here we are. MS is an afterthought to many of the Japanese devs and publishers. Renaissance my ass. The PC on the other hand is having a hell of renaissance with Japanese games.

While I’m sure that not being on all available platforms doesn’t help, I personally think it’s a reflection of the content coming from Japanese developers these days. There just has not been compelling content coming out of Japanese developers for several years now , and that’s before even discussing the issue of quality.

Xbox is making strides in Japan but they're very incremental. Seems like the current trend is to release on EVERYTHING except xbox, wait at least a year then see if Phil/Xbox will cut them a gamepass check. And while that trend works well for the japanese publishers and developers IMO it will leave xbox as always being a third class console when it comes to Japanese centric games.

I wouldn't waste my time with them, If I have to get a studio, it will be someone from South Korea, those guys can make games too.
