    Perhaps but games like "Battle Europe", Legend of Heroes, The Legend of Sword & Fairy, & Sango Fighters 1 & 2 are actually quite nice Chinese MS-DOS games also Korean titles such as like "Twins", Protocross, Yojeong Jeonsa Dwijuk, The Romance of Forgotten Kingdom & Fox Ranger 1, 2 & 3. You should def check those games out whenever you get the chance! :)

    Yeah that would be cool but you could always try the super famicom release.

    It's been a very long time I searched some informations about Japanese PC Games.......Most of the time, when I founded something, that was on Touhou or Adult Games (and I'm not a great fan of Touhou Games, even if I love Shmups' Games.....for the Adult Games, that's not exactly what I search, I search non-hentai Games in particular.....)

    It's very difficult to find some informations about these Games on Internet : I should write Games' name in Japanese for finding some useful informations (what a shame I don't understand very well Japanese even if I play some Japanese Games......).

    So, here I've found : the old Japanese Company which have released some PC Games are Falcom (known for Eiyuu Densetsu, Ys.....), TGL (you've put one of their Games Warlocks in one of your pictures......).......I'm sure there should have more companies than my little list......

    And here some Games I've found (but no owned unfortunately) :

    Angelic Vale (there are 3 Games)
    311967_front.jpg

    Blue Blaster (Kogado Studios)
    321425_front.jpg

    Cross Hermit
    320491_front.jpg

    Eiyuu Densetsu Sora no Kiseki
    296562_front.jpg

    (I have some other Games' name if you're interested :).....)

    I've seen you will update this topic if you found some other Japanese PC Games : that will be good if you found some other Japanese PC Games I haven't found :).......And if other people found some other informations about them :).......

    (I wanted to edit some pictures but my post has been erased......)

    Sweet collection! I wish there was a good definitive list of japanese localizations out there somewhere. Gamefaqs and mobygames are a good start but they cant always be relied on to see if there was a japanese release or not.

    I search a complete Japanese PC Games' list since (without counting Hentai Games and Touhou......)......; all I've found is some Japanese PC Games' reviews (in Japanese of course :)). If someone have some links :).....

    In fact, Gamefaqs has sort of Japanese PC Games' list, but with all PC Games' which are released since :)......(I've taken some Japanese PC Games' pictures on Gamefaqs :).....). And Mobygames has a little list of Japanese PC Games.....

    Yeah, a lot of consoles Games are released on PC in Japan :) : I search the other Games of this collection : PC ゲームBESTシリーズ Vol. :)......

    I play games from there sometimes, that's where I played the Hydlide remakes, I think that's the only Windows soft they have on that site. Cool thing though is that you can download the instruction manual scans for most games and read the story and instructions.
