Put Persona and Yakuza on Xbox, please.
One of the things that Xbox boss Phil Spencer has been consciously working to fix is the paucity of Japanese support on the platform. His very public outreaches have begun to have an impact already—we see developers like Bandai Namco and Capcom support Xbox wholesale now, and even more niche games like NieR Automata have started to make their way to the platform.
It seems like Spencer isn’t done, however. Much like last year, he has announced he will be visiting Japan and South Korea to speak to developers ahead of E3—meaning we can probably expect a bunch of major Japanese game announcements for Xbox again this year. Last year, we got Devil May Cry 5, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and Jump Force, for example, while also getting a look at Kingdom Hearts 3 and NieR Automata, so announcements of that caliber will be appreciated.
Personally, I’d love to see Yakuza and Persona on Xbox, if only for the sheer surreality of the situation.
Looking forward to the week in Korea and Japan visiting studios and publishers. Always inspired by the great games these studios are delivering. Talking about E3 and getting input on future plans is always fun.
