Xbox One's Japanese developers revealed

Over two generations, Microsoft has yet to find success in the Japanese market. Perhaps that's why Xbox One is releasing so late in the territory. Designated a "tier 3" country, the console will be shipping nearly a year late, on September 4th. To coincide with the announcement, Xbox has revealed which Japanese companies have signed on to be developers for the console.

  • Arc System Works

  • Artdink

  • Access Games

  • Atlus

  • Intergrow

  • Experience

  • SNK Playmore

  • Kadokawa Games

  • Electronic Arts

  • Capcom

  • GungHo Online Entertainment

  • Qute

  • Grounding

  • G rev.

  • Cave

  • Genki

  • Koei Tecmo Games

  • Codemasters

  • Konami Digital Entertainment

  • CyberConnect2

  • Cyberstep

  • Silicon Studio

  • Zoo

  • Square Enix

  • Spike Chunsoft

  • Sega

  • Tango Gameworks

  • Warner Entertainment Japan

Many of these names aren't too surprising to see, as they represent the biggest names in the Japanese gaming industry. However, just because a developer signs up doesn't mean they'll necessarily release content. As Siliconera reader Locklear93 points out, Nippon Ichi signed up to make content for Xbox 360--and that never happened.
