According to Japanese website Game Watch, Xbox Game Pass is coming to Japan soon, and a lot of acclaimed Japanese role-playing games have been added to the service like Yakuza 0. Based on what we could translate with a high degree of accuracy, it's unclear where the team got this information from. However, on Thursday, Nier: Automata will be joining Xbox Game Pass on Xbox One. Only Overcooked 2! is joining Xbox Game Pass on PC soon. You should be able to download it early because usually, games are available at 8 PM ET the previous day.
Be sure to check it out because it's another incredible experience that runs at 4K resolution and 60 frames per second on Xbox One X.
