Xbox has been working around the clock to expand its footprint within the Japanese gaming market, and it seems its efforts are slowly but surely paying off.
In a sales update from Twitter user and sales tracker BenjiSales, it's noted how the system's combined sales in Japan (since launch) have now surpassed 250,000 units. In comparison, the previous Xbox One generation only sold a lifetime amount of 114,000 units.
Xbox's Aaron Greenberg even chimed with a special message to Japanese fans. Here's the Google translation:
"Thank you to everyone in Japan for choosing Xbox. We are grateful and look forward to your continued patronage"
It follows on from an update last month - revealing how the Xbox Series X|S had recently outsold the PlayStation 5 in Japan, again.

Phil Spencer and Microsoft have also been working hard to get more Japanese titles on the systems. Most recently it was announced Atlus would be bringing its RPG series Persona to Xbox. The first release will be Persona 5 Royal. It's arriving this October and will also be a Game Pass title.
