About me
Let's say you created an awesome game. What's an awesome game without an awesome audience?

Japan is the 3rd largest games market in the world. There are 69 million gamers, and the population is 127 million (2015). Yes, it is lower than the US but higher in revenue. Almost 61% of the gamers in Japan spend money on games. The average amount spent on games is $296 annually. This makes them the highest game spender in the world.

RPGs are the most popular in Japan. As for games with high spenders- simulations. Japanese fans find investing in their favourite games worthwhile.

So, Should you localize into Japanese?
If you think your game will be the next big thing in the Japanese market, don’t want to miss the 3rd largest market in the world.
