During the days of the Xbox 360, Microsoft worked with Japanese studios to release various exclusive JRPGs.

Among them, Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey are the most popular. Demand for the latter’s remaster has existed for a whole, but the developers claimed to have no intentions of returning to the IP a few years back.

Meanwhile, other JRPGs like Enchanted Arms, Eternal Sonata, and more are also notable. It is important to note Xbox has been talking about bringing more Japanese developers to the platform for a very long time.

Therefore, this commitment may have encouraged the gaming giant to revisit these nostalgic IPs.

Fans can also expect third-party titles to show up at the Xbox Games Showcase. Recently, the gaming giant has signed deals to bring the likes of Persona 3 Reload to Game Pass, so it should continue to invest in more partnerships with Japanese studios.

We already had high expectations from the Xbox Showcase, and this teaser has only increased our excitement. With Hellblade 2’s release out of the way, Microsoft can fully focus on everything else planned for 2024.
