Where to buy Japanese games

Himeya Soft, Inc is an e-commerce company that specializes in on-line retailing of games that are officially released in Japan.

Note: to buy/pre-order games, browse using the navigation links on the left side of the page.

Note2: if the links don't work, you'll see "Don't work above links? Press here" just underneath the navigation links.

And a few more links:

(These are US companies selling console games.
Apart from US games they also sell Japanese import.
Most of them will ship Internationally too btw)

Good site, mate!!! Still a bit of expensive, though. Ebay is still my friend, if you ask me!!!! :thinker:

I've shopped at play-asia before. They're pretty good and I can usually find the games I'm looking for there as opposed to ebay.

Every game on there is Japanese retail, you have to take into consideration the prices of living is japan is WAY higher than it is in the US, so games that cost $30 USD to use cost $60 USD too them.

Yes Asia - they have Japanese, Asian (basically japanese version for release in the rest of asia- sometimes cheaper, sometimes comes with English/Chinese instruction manual), and Korean games. Worldwide shipping, and a 'chitload of other stuff too. It's worth taking a browse though.

I can't believe this site was not posted yet:

Game Choice Club

That's where my father ordered IIDX and 7th style from for Christmas. They also start shipping with a day.

hi new poster here.

i was just wondering. i havent been in the console scene for awhile now, since i've been playing FFXI hardcore for the last 2 years. my question is, do i need a modded PS2 to play these import games? i really want to play that naruto pt. 3 fighting game, and it just occurred to me that my US-spec PS2 might not be able to play this import.

thanks in advance for all inputs.

OutPhase 2005-12-28 07:27

Yes. Mods are required to play import games. You could also get a Japanese PS2 if you don't like the idea of using mods.

Jocean 2006-01-02 12:08

You can though also use the PS-X Change (for psx) and Breaker Pro disk (for ps2) and or an emu to play em.
