Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai just bought an Xbox Series X – .

Yesterday Sakurai caught our attention when he shared a picture of himself riding a horse, and now he’s gaining social media attention again, this time for buying an Xbox!

Yes, that’s right – the director of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has finally got their hands on Microsoft’s newest and most powerful console, the Xbox Series X. Sakurai, in general, is a game lover – so it’s no surprise that he added the latest Xbox hardware to its gaming setup, which already has a Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 5.

Here’s the rough translation from Google, along with a response from the official Xbox Twitter account:

“A year after its release, I finally bought it…! He may be affected by Corona, but it will still be difficult to get game consoles. ”

Xbox just celebrated its 20th anniversary, and it ultimately seems to be attracting attention in the gaming market in Japan – thanks to Game Pass and xCloud, which can be played on multiple devices. The Xbox Series X | S is also doing very well in the region.

This week alone, it was confirmed that the combined sales of Xbox Series X | S had already exceeded the total lifetime sales of Xbox One. As stated on our sister site Xbox pure, Microsoft’s new systems moved about 116,119 units in one year compared to the Xbox One’s 114,726 units after about seven and a half years.

Xbox has also confirmed that Japan has become the system’s fastest growing market, and it follows Xbox on how it wants to expand its reach in this region – getting more Japanese partnerships and games made in Japan for its services.

Infinite halo will launch on the platform on December 8th, so maybe Sakurai is preparing for it. Do you have any other recommendations for him? Do you have an Xbox? Leave a comment below.
