While we don't have exact details on what to expect, Microsoft notes that the stream — which is being held on the official Tokyo Game Show YouTube channel (opens in new tab) — will be focused on "existing titles from Xbox Game Studios and titles launching from developer partners," with the show being specifically "curated for our players in Japan and Asia."

In 2021, the Xbox stream at Tokyo Game Show was primarily focused on Japanese-centric updates for upcoming titles, with Bethesda Game Studios director Todd Howard and Arkane Austin head Harvey Smith sharing that Starfield and Redfall would feature full Japanese localization

Both of these Bethesda Softworks games were delayed out of 2022 and are now slated to arrive at some point in the first half of 2023, alongside other Xbox first-party games like Minecraft Legends, Forza Motorsport, and Ara: History Untold.
