Xbox Series X Will Launch in Japan in Holiday 2020 - NewsWilliam D'Angelo , posted on 03 June 2020 / 986 Views
Head of Xbox Phil Spencer recently stated team Xbox is committed to a worldwide launch of the Xbox Series X.
"In our supply chain, we feel good about the hardware side," said Spencer at the time. "Feels like we’ll be able to get enough units. And you know, we’re pretty committed, as we’ve talked about to a worldwide launch, which regretfully, we didn’t do with Xbox One."
Microsoft Japan has now told Famitsu the Xbox Series X will launch in Japan as part of its simultaneous worldwide launch in Holiday 2020.
This is very different from the Xbox One, which launched in Japan on September 4, 2014, a full 10 months after it launched in North America and Europe on November 22, 2013.
Confirmed Xbox Series X for launch in Japan includes Halo Infinite, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Scarlet Nexus, and Bright Memory: Infinite. The release of Yakuza: Like a Dragon for the Xbox Series X in Japan has not been scheduled yet.
