Microsoft plans to release more JRPGs for Xbox in the near future

In the near future, Microsoft will expand the selection of JRPGs that are currently available on Xbox consoles.

Microsoft will soon add more JRPGs to its library of Japanese games for the Xbox, according to Sarah Bond, Corporate Vice President, of Office Product Group at the software giant.

Bond was asked what JRPGs she would like to see come to Xbox in the future during a panel at Tokyo Game Show 2023. She responded by saying that picking a favorite is very common. She stated that it was fantastic for her and the Xbox team to bring more JRPGs to the platform.

Many fans had asked for the Yakuza and Persona series to be available on Xbox, and she described it as "fantastic" to be able to bring them not only to the platform but also to Xbox Game Pass. Bond stated that having these games on the subscription service made them more accessible to both the Xbox community within and outside of Japan.

Bond was unable to name a favorite JRPG franchise that she would like to see come to Xbox, but she assured fans that more is on the way. Bringing a franchise like Persona up to date on Xbox with the release of Persona 3 Reload has been a major accomplishment for Xbox. The game will be released for the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Windows, Steam, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4. At launch, it will also be available on Xbox Game Pass.

The Persona 5 game engine is being used to create Persona 3 Reload, a complete remake of the original game. The story and combat will be the same, but other aspects have been drastically changed. It appears to cut the extra episode from the PS2 version and doesn't appear to add any new content, but it still represents a significant improvement over the initial release.
