Phil Spencer is making the hype train go wild on Twitter.
One of the things I really like about the new Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, is that he’s very proactive with the community, always answering questions and just being a great guy. One of the most recent burning questions a fan had was about the prospect of Japanese related gaming developments on the Xbox One and if we would have to wait till the Tokyo Game Show later this year to hear anything.
According to Phil Spencer, you won’t.
@zainetor You won’t have to wait until TGS.

There’s been rumors flying around that Microsoft may announce a new JRPG for the Xbox One at E3 this year. Hironobu Sakaguchi, the lead guy on the development of Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey , both exclusive JRPGs for the Xbox 360 is said to be working on something for the Xbox One.
Also in Phil Spencer’s latest tweets, he did make mention to a fan that he would love to see Lost Odyssey brought to Games on Demand on the Xbox 360, but ownership rights are bit wonky at the moment.
I’m not a huge fan of JRPGs, but I know tons of you are so hopefully something gets announced or is at least mentioned at E3 2014. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date with this developing story and feel free to join the forums to discuss your hopes and dreams there for more Japanese developed games on the Xbox One.
