It's worth noting that while Penguin Wars only has Japanese support, most of its menus are in both English and Japanese. The only stuff that's purely Japanese is the dialogue in Story Mode and descriptions of things that are easy enough to deduct from context. I'd say the game is pretty import friendly, and worth grabbing if you have fond memories of Penguin Wars / King of the Zoo on the Game Boy or NES.

Also City Connection's other Japanese-only game, Soldam, eventually got an update with English support, followed by a localized release on the US eShop. I have my fingers crossed that'll happen for Penguin Wars down the line as well.

Aw, Deemo is digital only? That's too bad. Also, I'm really surprised that Octopath Traveler is only in Japanese. I thought that one would have English for sure.

Sorry, couldn't update the OP as it would go over the 24,000 character limit. I will work on doing a spreadsheet with the games and then post it there. Might take a while.

I couldn't find it on the store, isn't the release date for FIFA is 29th ?

Yeah, there's no buy button. I just copied the information on the page so perhaps they listed them incorrectly?

Not sure. Searched quickly on Amazon Japan but couldn't find anything. If you can provide a source saying otherwise, I will update.

seems a mistake on the website itself

Probably you are right, it must be a mistake on website.

The same publisher handling the retail release of Soldam in the US also basically confirmed they were doing to same for Penguin Wars. :)

So with games on the JP store being around 5400 yen, equating to 36 quid this seems a no brainer considering their UK price equivalent is 50 quid!

So, it seems you can't buy any JP eshop cards anymore at Amazon JP. How will you get a credit for Japanese account? I remember my credit card didn't work. How about Paypal? Anyone tried?

You need a Japanese billing address for your PayPal, which is difficult to do if you're not legit in Japan. You can try the credit card option, some credit cards seem to work.

Ah, I guess my last option is buying JP eshop cards online like playasia if it is available. Or if I know someone who can buy me a card. Damn shame.

Sorry for reviving this, but , by any chance someone bought the Japanese version of One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 and could inform if it is multi language ?
I’ve heard it’s Japanese only. Need confirmation though

I can check when I get home, but I thought it was listed as Japanese only on the store when I checked (hoping for the same thing)

Sorry for bumping but I'm not too sure how we'd be able to continue this list.

Not sure if the poster still comes here but this is very useful info to people who want to buy games on JP eshop but play in English.
