First Big Update for Microsoft Flight Simulator Takes Us to Japan

Keep the takoyaki coming, it’s gonna be a long flight

Announced at Tokyo Game Show by Microsoft and Asobo Studio, Microsoft Flight Simulator’s first big update is focusing on Japan.

The free update will be dropping September 29th internationally and will include six brand new and handcrafted airports – Hachijojima, Kerama, Kushiro, Nagasaki, Shimojisjima, and Suwanosejima – and 20 new points of interest such as Himeji Castle, Kobe Port Tower, and plenty more.

As we’ve always said, our launch in August was just the beginning. Our goal is to provide you with a meaningful update to the sim every month. In addition to increasing the visual detail of the planet with future World Updates, we also plan to add Simulation Updates every 2-3 months that will further enhance the overall sim experience. On top of that, we are developing some exciting paid DLC that we plan to rollout over the coming months and years, and we will share more information in the future.
