Additionally, the company has also added a plethora of Japanese titles to Game Pass. Recent games like Persona 5 Royal are now on the subscription service, and upcoming games like Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty will also join Game Pass, day one.

The job listing hints that Microsoft is going all out with Japanese developers for the Xbox Series S|X consoles. This means fans can expect a huge renaissance for Japanese games on the platform and future collaborations with big publishers.

Microsoft has done a great job with the Xbox series X|S in Japan, and it looks like the company will continue this trend in the coming years. Do you think they will succeed? Let us know in the comment section.
