New Game Releases in Japan for the Week of October 26th, 2020

Games Release Top

I have been playing imported games for quite some time, close to 20 years now, and have always wanted to have a hub that I can see all of the games coming out at any given time with a quick glance. Finding this information where it’s not necessarily hard to do, can be cumbersome and time-consuming so I felt that it might be beneficial for our users to be able to see exactly what is coming out on what platform the current week starting on Monday in Japan. So with that being said, welcome to the first of hopefully many of these weekly articles that outlines the games that will be coming out on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and soon to be PlayStation 5 in Japan.
