Phil Spencer has always been very responsive to the requests of Xbox fans desiring the ability to play Japanese games on the Xbox One, and he has been traveling to Japan to meet developers and publishers in order to negotiate their presence of the console.
As a result, we often see Japanese games taking front and center stage during Microsoft’s conferences at trade events like E3, and unexpected titles popping up on Xbox One.
Today, Spencer mentioned that he is going back to Japan for another round of meetings with developers and publishers, during which he’ll talk about game development and get feedback on the progress made with local creators.
Spending this week in Japan visiting studios and publishers, will be great to talk about games in development and get feedback on how we keep making progress with creators here. @Xbox_JP

It’ll be interesting to see the result of those meetings in the months to come. Spencer himself talked about the importance of working with Japanese developers in a recent interview.
