In addition to the developers mentioned above, Phil Spencer has also suggested in recent interviews that a well-known Japanese developer is currently working on an exclusive title for the system. A formal reveal of this game is expected to take place at the 2014 Tokyo Game Show starting on September 18th.

The Xbox One originally launched in both North America and Europe last November. Since then, the popular next-gen console has sold well, but is still playing catch-up with the PS4. Sony owns a considerable amount of the Japanese market so it will be interesting to see exactly how Microsoft will fare in this environment once their console arrives later this year.
