Xbox Series X is in demand around the globe, and even in Japan, there have been shortages due to the pandemic and various other factors in play. Game Pass and xCloud have also increased the system's popularity and Halo Infinite is just around the corner, too.
Taking this into account, it seems the legendary Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director, Masahiro Sakurai, has been able to finally get his hands on one - uploading the following image of his brand new Xbox Series X, alongside his cat, Fukura. The Xbox Twitter account even gave him an official welcome.
"One year after its release, I finally bought it ...! It may be affected by Corona, but it will continue to be difficult to obtain game consoles."
Xbox has enjoyed a lot of success in recent times within Japan. Microsoft has mentioned how the country is the fastest-growing region for the platform, and earlier this week it was revealed Xbox Series X|S sales have already surpassed lifetime Xbox One sales.
Phil Spencer has also spoken about expanding Xbox's reach within this region, so if Sakurai's finally on board - the company's efforts must be paying off!
