Four titles are scheduled for release in the second batch of the Xbox World Collection: Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds, The Simpsons Hit & Run, Return to Castle Wolfenstein: Tides of War, and Wakeboarding Unleashed featuring Shaun Murray. The titles will be released on December 25.

I want to go to Japan someday...oh wait...this is about Xbox games.

I think that the games should be released in Japanese, since they are released in Japan. That way more people will buy them. But if they're in English, I don't they will be so popular. Microsoft should still strongly concentrate on their Japanese market.
