More Japanese Games

Added byicewasp's avataricewasp

There are lots of untranslated Japanese games that could possibly be fan translated or something, and many translated ones that have never seen large scale releases in the west before

Big-boy batch coming on through!

First up is the Relics series from Bothtec. The 1986 original was lauded in its time for telling a mysterious story in a language few Japanese could read (which was English); the series shifted from action-adventure to isometric CRPG when the 1999 remake came out:

Bokosuka Wars (proto-RTS that influenced Tecno Soft's Herzog and others; avoid the NES version, this one's balanced): http://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/bokosuka_wars_x1

Space Griffon (sci-fi dungeon-crawler taking place in a haunted moon colony): http://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/space_griffon

Produce (maze/trap strategy game, a precursor of Tecmo's Deception and other horror games where you play as the enemy): http://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/produce

Eggerland Mystery + Eggerland 2 (most know the series as Adventures of Lolo, but these first two MSX games set the puzzle mechanics in place): http://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/eggerland_mystery
http://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/eggerland_2


Lizard (first-person CRPG influenced by Wizardry, ported to many platforms as Sir-Tech's games became popular): http://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/lizard_nec_pc6001

Genocide Squared (compiling the original and Genocide II, this is the best, most convenient way to play two hectic side-scrolling arcade action games): http://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/genocide_squared_fm_towns

Adventure Forest in Wonderland (a relic of the Japanese text-adventure era, this surreal trek could one day receive attention): http://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/adventure_forest_in_wonderland_sharp_mz

Hioden I + II (early RTSes from Wolf Team, featuring great audiovisuals and tactical-scale dungeon missions): http://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/hioden_pc98
http://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/hioden_ii_pc98


Soft de Hard na Monogatari I + II (part of Sacom's Novelware series, these visual novels riff off of a Japanese PC software industry long passed, with sim-game mechanics involved): http://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/soft_de_hard_na_monogatari_i_ii

Falcom's Monarch Monarch (silly name aside, this game expands on Lord Monarch's sunny RTS mechanics, using an isometric perspective for height): http://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/monarch_monarch

Death Force (a technical showpiece for a Fujitsu computer, this overhead action-adventure offers interesting control options and plenty of difficulty): http://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/death_force_fujitsu_fm77av

The pastebin needs a big update, substantial as it already is.

Would really love more Japanese games, specially JRPG's and visual novels (I think that's what everyone thinks about by "Japanese games" but what the hell :) ).

There were also cute (not eroge) games like symphonic rain, angelic serenade, and such. Although westerners seem to have phobia of anime girls so they need to raise their age like in the atlier games. They're too young, must grow older...

This reminds me of ever17 getting ported to US but the compnay got shut down. Now the price for 2nd handed copy is like a few hundreds bucks.

Daiva: Flames of Vlitra (strategy-action space opera sim, first in a monumental saga of six games released across various J-PCs): http://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/daiva_flames_of_vlitra_pc88

I'd love to see GameArts Silpheed on the site. Since it was published by Sierra in the US and EU, I guess the publishing rights for that would be at Activision now, if they didn't revert to GameArts/GungHo?

I'd love to see more Japanese games on the site. The problem is that the computers they used were so different from ours for a long time. It isn't possible to play most of those games without emulators. Granted there are plenty of DOS games on this website, so it's not like GOG is opposed to emulation, but DOSbox is already so well established that it's a little different.

Here's the first several Japanese PC games I've added to Requested Games:

The Black Onyx: http://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/the_black_onyx_pc88
Burai: http://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/burai_pc98
Door Door: http://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/door_door
Elm Knight: http://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/elm_knight
Lunatic Dawn II: http://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/lunatic_dawn_ii
Star Cruiser: http://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/star_cruiser_sharp_x68000
Tokio: http://www.gog.com/wishlist/games/tokio

Plenty more to come. I already posted my thoughts on getting Japanese PC games onto GOG here: http://www.gog.com/wishlist/site/more_japanese_developerspublishersgames

Not sure why this wish is more popular all of a sudden, but the above games are overlooked whenever people talk about important Japanese PC titles. They seem to prefer eroge as a topic, lol.
