Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass subscription service has now officially launched in Japan, following its announcement during the company's Inside Xbox show last week. Head of Xbox Phil Spencer personally detailed its upcoming availability at the time, stating that "fans in Japan are incredibly important to me and to team Xbox."
At launch, Xbox Game Pass for Japan includes 150 console games and 160 PC games, in contrast to the 258 console games and 196 PC games in Great Britain, and 259 console games and 196 PC games in the U.S. It costs ¥850 p/m on Xbox One, ¥425 p/m on PC, and ¥1,100 p/m for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, although the latter also comes with a low-priced first month.
Meanwhile, Xbox Game Pass for PC (and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate) is now available in South Korea as well, with the console version having originally been released back in 2017.
