Microsoft has announced this week that the Xbox One will finally see a launch in Japan September 6, replete with 29 games to balance out against the console's first year of availability elsewhere in the world. Among the launch titles, Microsoft is publishing 11 games, with third parties handling the rest; it's also worth noting that many of the system's launch titles also served as such last year when the console debuted in North America and other parts of the world (ACIV and Ghosts, we're looking at you).
