Xbox Game Pass Heads to Japan and Korea on April 14
Nearly three years after its original launch in 2017, Xbox Game Pass finally heads to Japan and Korea next week.
Xbox Game Pass is probably the most popular subscription service now among the gamers’ community with a lot of worthy titles to play and a fair monthly fee. Despite having a lot of subscribers all over the world, Microsoft still hasn’t released the service in Japan and Korea over the three years after its launch. But finally, Japanese and Korean gamers will be able to subscribe to Xbox Game Pass as of next week.
Revealed by Phil Spenser via a home-made video, both PC and console versions of Xbox Game Pass will be coming to Japan and Korea on April 14. The service will be available with a full library of games, including some Japanese titles such as Devil May Cry 5, Tekken 7, Ace Combat 7, Phantasy Star Online 2, and more. Most recently, the service received Nier: Automata Become As Gods Edition, which is another great game made by Japanese developers.
Xbox Game Pass currently has a strong library of games from highly-praised indie titles like Braid to triple-A big-budget projects like Grand Theft Auto V. As a newcomer to the service, you can get three months of Xbox Game Pass subscription for only $1. Plus, if you need Xbox Live Gold as well, the Ultimate version of the service will be available at the same price for the first time. Later on, you will be charged $9.99 per month for the standard subscription and $14.99 per month for Ultimate Edition.
Every month, Microsoft adds new titles to the service, though on the other hand, some video games leave the library after a certain period. During April, XGP will be hosting Gears Tactics, Stranger Things 3: The Game, Journey to the Savage Planet, Football Manager 2020, Mistover, and Alvastia Chronicles. On the other hand, eight games will be leaving the service soon, including Prey, Into The Breach, and Samurai Showdown 2.
