Forums - Gaming Discussion - Upcoming Japan Games Thread

I've noticed there are a lot of people unaware of what games are coming out in Japan in the sales and preorders threads. The goal of this thread is to keep an updated list of upcoming games in Japan on all relevant consoles, so people can have a better understanding of the state of the Japanese game market, and also be aware of what games exist and thus may be localized outside Japan. Data will be provided by Famitsu, Dengeki, game companies themselves, and other reputable industry sources.

List is organized by console below. No "best price" "greatest hits" or other low price rereleases, and no educational software. No games that don't have a title yet for obvious reasons. Download only games will only be listed if they are significant. Games will be erased a few days after they release so the lists don't get too long with old titles.

New! Genre Key:
ACT - Action
ADV - Adventure
CRD - Card game
FHT - Fighting
GMB - Gambling
MNI - Minigames
MUS - Music/Rhythm
PUZ - Puzzle
RCE - Racing
RPG - RPG
SIM - Simulation
SPT - Sports
STG - Shooting (danmaku-types)
STR - Shooter (FPS/TPS)
UNK - Unknown/not announced

Please note this is a constant work in progress and will be subject to change at any time.
