I'm pretty sure they don't even have WoW in Japan. You want a Japanese MMORPG? Go play FFXI.

I believe you are correct.

There's not even a localized Japanese client, let alone any servers. Western MMOs generally aren't that popular in Japan.

It wouldn't do you any good even if there was one and you were able to connect to it. People who used to play Final Fantasy XI probably know what I mean.

There are few Japanese guilds / players scattered around various US NA servers. You'd have to look real hard though, to find them.

At least FFXI had the translate feature making it somewhat possible to play with Japanese players. Now if only blizz would do the same kind of thing since we have to play with Latin American server players. Would make things a bit easier.

Western RPGs don't sell as well in Japan, and on top of that Japanese games are largely console. It actually makes a lot of sense not to market the game to Japan. Those players in Japan that do want to get into WoW are willing to take the extra steps needed by learning English, importing WoW from the US, and installing a Western OS.

ffxi is great for learning Japanese...I would also assume FF 15 is as well. However be aware that they generally don't think to highly of North Americans or our ability to game, even a a "top" wow player might be seen as (whats that current kiddo slang word...oh yeah) a "bad".

Some just won't like you because your are north American...

Ner'zhul actually has a couple japanese guilds, believe it or not.

That would be your best bet since japanese servers don't exist atm.

Pretty much anything westernized is not popular in Japan. Isolated culture is isolated.


I could of sworn the Japanese swooned over many aspects of Western Culture.

Our gaming preferences just don't appear to be one of them.
