Microsoft Announces Launch of Xbox One in Japan

Microsoft announces plans to launch Xbox One in Japan.

Microsoft has decided it's time to reveal the Xbox One's launch and game lineup for Japan. Almost seven months after Sony's PS4, Microsoft will be shipping their new console out to the land of the rising sun on September 4th. 

Two different SKU's will be available for the Xbox One. There will be a Kinectless version and a version with the Kinect included. The Xbox One that comes with Kinect will understandably come in at a higher price, costing consumers ¥49,980/£291/$490. The Kinectless version will cost its Japanese audience ¥39,980/£233/$392.

Microsoft has confirmed the following titles will be available at launch for the Xbox One's Japanese release: Forza Motorsport 5, Kinect Sports Rivals, Dead Rising 3 and Ryse: Son of Rome. Square Enix also chimed in stating that they will have Tomb Raider Definitive Edition, Murdered: Soul Suspect, Thief and Call of Duty: Ghosts ready for the Japanese launch date. 

Originally the Xbox One was released in 13 countries when it launched in November; come this September it will have launched in 26 additional territories, bringing its total number of countries and territories it is available for purchase in to 39.
