During an interview by YouTube user iJustine, Xbox division head Phil Spencer talked about the recent Xbox Games Showcase.
He was asked if he had a message to convey about the showcase, and he talked about the presence of games by Japanese developers.
He also added that an area of focus for the team is welcoming creators from all over the world.
“As you said, I’ve been in the industry for a long time and I visit studios, and I thought it was really cool to see the way Dragon Quest showed up as a game coming to Xbox.
The support from Japanese publishers, Square bringing new IP into our show, obviously Tetris Effect was there, PSO is coming to Xbox again with their new version.
It’s just an area of focus for all to make sure all creators globally feel like Xbox is a great platform for them and that they can deliver their games to a large global audience. It’s an area that our team in Japan has really been working hard on and to be able to open the preshow with Dragon Quest and then continue to see support from great Japanese publishers, I think it was something that really popped for me in the show and it’s nice to see a lot of fans of Japanese publishers react to that.
That’s something I just wanted to call out because it means something to me.”
