Translation

A well translated game will convey to potential Japanese customers that you care about the Japan market. Let our team handle your English to Japanese translation needs. If localization requires more than just translation we have programmers proficient in Unity and other development environments and expertise at modifying source code to support Japanese requirements.

CERO Age Rating

Depending on the platform that you will be releasing your game in Japan you may need to apply for an official age rating. As a member of CERO, the Japanese agency responsible for age ratings, we can handle all aspects of CERO application at competitive pricing.

PlayStation Submissions

If you’ve developed a PlayStation game and want to self-publish in the Japan PlayStation store you may discover that Sony’s FQA and submission process is challenging in Japanese.
