Full title: XB1 Japanese Exclusive “From an Awesome Studio;” Something “Never Seen Before"

Hai

Microsoft Game Studios Honcho has been teasing one or more Japanese Xbox One exclusives for a while, and during the Game Developers Conference he gave some more information about it after Kris Graft’s fireside chat, as reported by Famitsu.

"I'm very excited about the announcement of the release window in Japan. An unique exclusive title for Xbox One is going to be released by an awesome Japanese studio."

It’s interesting that the term used to define the studio is “subarashī,” which is basically the highest praise you can express in Japanese. That definitely seems to indicate a major developer.

Spencer then continued by talking about what we can expect from Microsoft at Tokyo Game Show.

"I’m looking forward to go to Tokyo Game Show this year, and I want to show everyone something never seen before. Stay tuned!"

Discuss(...cause apparently even lems don't like posting good Xbone news)

Interesting, wonder if it has anything to do with resident evil.

Since all of the user base is COD playing Americans, this is a bad move.

I hate these announcements of announcements.

Waste of time but that's how PR works in hopes people are stupid and salivate and talk for days and build HYPE.

I hope it's a good game, but we'll see when we actually know what the f*** it is on the actual announcement day.

@SolidTy:

Pretty much.

I don't know what to do with an announcement about an announcement. I'll save my excitement for whenever the announcement is actually made.

We don't see eye to eye usually but ^^^This.

There is nothing to report about here. It is talking for the sake of talking without saying anything at all. The sad thing is that this is not just gaming that does this.

Exactly. I have excitement waiting in the wings when actual information on a tangible game reveal is provided.

Holy mother of Odin. I was notified that kuu responded to a comment and I thought, "Oh wonderful, what kind of trolling am I in for?" and surprise surprise, you actually stayed on topic, didn't troll, and agreed!

I'm flabbergasted.

I'm glad we eye to eye on this. I would love to see a kick ass announcement as I'll reserve the game if it's something great and wait eagerly, but yeah, I hate when companies do these announcements of announcements and sometimes of another announcement. I know why they do it, but it feels like a huge waste of time since there is nothing really to consider. There is a lot of other real information out there I can digest and this isn't anything. I feel dirty just posting in this thread. I don't blame the topic creators of these types of threads, I obviously throw the blame at the feet of marketing and PR.

Nice stereotyping however, I dont even own COD!

Stats my friend. Xbox failed in Japan. It's much more logical to put em on a Nintendo or Sony system,

Does not compute.

In Japan? I don't think so. Game probably won't even make it out of Japan.

Eddie made a news article like this about Phil Spencer making a comment. The comment was pretty much meaningless. They need to stop doing crap like this.

At least they are sorta trying.

I'm sure the 55 Japanese gamers that buy the XBox One will love that exclusive to death.

Capcom is a japanese developer.

Failed? It tripled what the original XBox sold. I wouldn't call that a failure. One of the things I really found funny was that games like Tales of Vesperia ended up selling more copies on the XBox 360 then it did when it finally got released on the PS3. There were several other JRPG's that ended up selling better worldwide on the 360. So yes, it didn't sell anywhere close to what the PS3 did, but it still made it's mark and improved in it's marketshares from the previous generation. M$ will still continue to release their systems in Japan, even though Japanese gamers don't care much for American game consoles.

Huh!?!? They sold 1.67 million XBox 360 in Japan. I think that beats 55 by a little bit. lol!!

I think it's the "awesome" part he's disputing, not the "Japanese" part.

japanese? xbox? exclusive? wat.

#26 Posted by Heil68 (42712 posts) -

Wonder if we'll see it here?

#27 Posted by hehe101 (470 posts) -

@Jag85:

Well I am a fan of most of their work so, I guess its peoples opinions lol.

#28 Posted by stereointegrity (10679 posts) -

its not gonna sell this thing in japan regardless what game it is

The phrasing makes it seem like something that would only be popular in Japan or with weeabos.

#30 Edited by treedoor (7478 posts) -

I imagine this isn't about D4 then (which also looks amazing).

Hopefully it's something interesting. Maybe Microsoft is working with Itagaki's studio.

#31 Posted by XboxDone74 (2047 posts) -

Won't sell. Not enough pew pew

#32 Posted by Crossel777 (5593 posts) -

Pointless to put JP games on the Xbone. They'll only end fading into obscurity just like Lost Odyssey. Now look at Mistwalker, it's like they didn't exist. Currently making games people don't care about on mobile platforms.

#33 Edited by GrenadeLauncher (3257 posts) -

D4 2.

Another announcement of an announcement from the hype monkey king. Getting bored of news sites making hay of Spencer's boring PR tweets.

#34 Posted by FoxbatAlpha (5914 posts) -

I know Microsoft was putting a lot more energy into japan. They even have a new studio they constructed over there.

Thanks for posting this news P but Japan is still japan. Yawn games.

#35 Edited by Opus_Rea-333 (893 posts) -

Love the secrecy it keeps the pathetic PS4 sheeps guessing . LOLLLL

my guess it will be a Action-RPG from the gaming Gods at Platinum Games or maybe a JRPG from the Final Fantasy creator, Just a guess lol.

#37 Posted by StrifeDelivery (1285 posts) -

So is this either:

1) Xbone exclusive made by Japanese dev

2) Xbone exclusive made by Japanese dev exclusively for Japan.

misterp turning into misterx? good x1 news from you? this is awesome when you get that x1 let me know so I can give you gt lol

#39 Posted by GiantAssPanda (1590 posts) -

Not very specific. Buuut. Despite X1 being a disappointment hardware wise I'm still very much open to buy one if they release plenty of high quality exclusives for it.
