Japanese Games Are Coming to Steam

For too long Japanese games have not, for whatever reason, engaged with the PC gaming market. They have focused on handhelds, on phones and on consoles for almost three decades. Over the past couple of years though we have seen a number of higher profile Japanese games finally work their way onto the PC – with mixed results. Some struggle to offer the options that PC gamers are used to – Dark Souls being one of the first examples.
Since then, though, the maturity is improving. The options, too, are growing. Without fail, though, the success of these games have proved to be very good – especially to the developers willing to put the effort in on these ports. Valkyria Chronicles from SEGA is a fantastic example. A wonderful game, respectfully ported to PC and, as a result, it has sold exceptionally well.
