The Xbox One will go much more global six months from now.

Microsoft said Tuesday that in September, the Xbox One will arrive in 26 additional countries, including India and Japan but especially across a broad swath of Europe.

That's about all there was to the announcement, save for this tease from Xbox Live's Larry Hyrb: "We'll have much more to share at a local level towards the end of April, so stay tuned."

When the $500 Xbox One launched last November, hot on the heels of rival PlayStation 4, it was available in 13 countries: Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, the UK, and the US.

Here is the full list of countries where the Xbox One will land in September: Argentina, Belgium, Chile, Colombia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Hungary, India, Israel, Japan, Korea, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovakia, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, and the UAE.
