    Lightbulb Does anyone find it hard to find an English version of PS4 Games?

    Recently there are a few Asian R3 PS4 games that are only available in Chinese or Japanese.

    1 - Sword art online bullet fatal
    2 - Digimon story cyber sleuth hacker's memory
    3 - New Gundam Breaker.
    4 - Gundam Breaker 3
    5 - Dragon Ball Fighterz
    6 - SUPER ROBOT WARS X
    7 - Super Robot Wars V
    8 - SUPER ROBOT WARS OG THE MOON DWELLERS.

    Does anyone knows any place that sell the English version of these games? Thanks

    not all official asian games (HK,) are released in English, probably only Dragon Ball Z made by arc system works seems to be only one with english release in HK

    The rest of the games named are niche manga games which sometimes never released outside japan and asia and hence why no english (especially super robot wars)

    best bet, look at play-asia.com for us version after all, ps4 is region free or open a US or europe PSN acc and purchase digitally as you can easily but pre-paid vouchers for overseas psn accounts

    from wiki

    "Many mecha titles included are released only in Japan and the number of titles involved within a single game means complicated rights and licensing issues when releasing it elsewhere (a problem that also affects other games, such as Jump Super Stars).

    Thus far, only Original Generation games are officially released for the English market by Atlus USA. The titles of the games are given as Super Robot Taisen, possibly to avoid potential confusion with the British television series, Robot Wars. The games do not have the licensing problems other games may have since only original creations not from any anime or manga series are used in the lineup, thus making it the first game in the series to be released outside of the Asian market.[4] Atlus also released Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier for the Nintendo DS on April 28, 2009.[5]

    In addition, some games have been unofficially translated to English: the original Super Robot Wars, 2nd Super Robot Wars, 3rd Super Robot Wars, Super Robot Wars Gaiden: Mas? Kishin The Lord Of Elemental, Super Robot Wars Alpha Gaiden, Super Robot Wars J and Super Robot Wars A Portable. Unofficial Chinese translation have also been done to: 2nd Super Robot Wars G, 4th Super Robot Wars, Super Robot Wars A, Super Robot Wars R, Super Robot Wars D, Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation, Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation 2, Super Robot Wars J, Super Robot Wars Alpha, Super Robot Wars Alpha Gaiden, Super Robot Wars F, Super Robot Wars F Final, 3rd Super Robot Wars Alpha: To the End of the Galaxy, Super Robot Wars: Original Generations, Super Robot Wars W, Super Robot Wars K, Super Robot Wars MX Portable, Super Robot Wars A Portable. In early 2016, Namco Bandai have announced that Super Robot Wars OG: Moon Dwellers and Super Robot Wars V will be given an English release for the Southeastern Asian version along with a Chinese translation."

    I'm assuming you're asking specifically about the Asian edition because they generally tend to be less expensive than the Japanese edition. If that's the issue then I suggest that you also cross check against Amazon USA's price for the US edition. Because Play-asia charges a premium and a sometimes I found that even after freight charge (about US$7-8 for a slip case), Amazon still gives you a better deal.
