Microsoft is hosting a stream on Thursday, September 30, that is curated specifically for people in Japan and Asia. “Earn a celebration with the Asia community and local updates, but no new global premieres should be expected. Microsoft stated that you can tune in to receive the most recent regionally relevant updates about previously announced games later in the year.
The event–which is officially called the Tokyo Game Show 2021 Xbox Stream–takes place at 6 PM JST on Thursday, September 30, and it will be streamed live. That works out to 2 AM PT / 5 AM ET on September 30.
Tokyo Game Show 2021, like last year’s event, will take place entirely online due to the pandemic. Konami, Capcom, Square Enix, Ubisoft, and 505 Games are among some of the other companies that are hosting their own events this year as well.
Xbox has never historically performed all that well in Japan, but the company is seeing “phenomenal growth” in the market following the launch of the Xbox Series X and S.
Microsoft has one wholly owned game development studio in Japan, which is Tango Gameworks, the developer of Ghostwire: Tokyo and The Evil Within. After ZeniMax/Bethesda was acquired, Microsoft took over the studio. Microsoft acquired Ghostwire: Tokyo in the purchase. The game will continue to be available as a PlayStation 5 exclusive.
