Hardcore Gaming 101 Presents: Japanese Video Game Obscurities

Over the years, thousands of game have been developed in Japan. Unfortunately, some of them were never released outside of their home country. While quite a few of them did end up released outside Japan (via an official or unofficial translation), the vast majority of them didn’t…and remain completely unknown outside Japan (and sometimes, even Japanese players don’t know about them).

And yet, there’s some pretty important games among those that were never localised: while some of them are simply unique, other did have a strong influence on other games. If you want to learn more about those games (well… not all of them, obviously!), then the latest book from Hardcore Gaming 101 is definitely worth checking.

Called Hardcore Gaming 101 Presents: Japanese Video Game Obscurities, it takes a look at various obscure Japanese video games. It’s not available for purchase just yet, but a crowdfunding campaign was recently launched: you can click here to learn more about it, and about the book itself!
