The Xbox One will finally be arriving in Japan on September 4th – almost a good year after it launched in the West.

This is according to Famitsu (via Gematsu) which also confirmed that games like Forza Motorsport 5, Sunset Overdrive, Thief, Murdered: Soul Suspect, Dead Rising 3, Ryse: Son of Rome, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Kinect Sports Rivals, Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition and oddly enough, Halo on Xbox One will be launching alongside the console.

As of now, the full line-up is yet to be revealed so it’s possible that some Japan-centric games may be along for the ride. We do know that companies like Arc System Works, Bandai Namco, Atlus, Capcom, and many more will be supporting the system so it’s almost a given.

    if they get the voice recognition working well and getting japanese TV stuff on there side i could imagine X1 could sell quite well in japan seeing as PS4 uptake isnt to high, could be seen as more useful.
