    Hey I like your show! Even though you always use the same background music lol and say it’s not something to write home about a lot , isn’t that what you’re doing tho.. writing home about the very things that you saying not to write home about. I’m just being an ass, I love your show, I get so many good game recommendations and updates from it. Thanks!

    Also tekken

    Anime art style is not the only thing that makes Japanese games different from western ones, though. DMC 5 and Sekiro are very Japanese (actually, RE2 too).

  4. ROGERDERBY on February 23, 2021 at 10:00 pm

    Jesus take a breather

  5. Thumb Glitch on February 23, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    God Eater is dope.

  6. Ghost in The shell on February 23, 2021 at 10:03 pm

    I love that clickbait thumbnail

  7. Michael Coffey on February 23, 2021 at 10:03 pm

    Just some stellar titles, thanks for the spotlight on these different and fun games.

  8. Khin David on February 23, 2021 at 10:03 pm

    The thumbnail, does any1 know the game shes from?

  9. MojaveKnight17 on February 23, 2021 at 10:03 pm

    Isn’t dmcv a Japanese game? It was made in Japan 🇯🇵

  10. edoardo fedrighi on February 23, 2021 at 10:04 pm

    Fate Extella was a disappointment… I know warriors games aren’t meant to be hard, but this is so easy that at the hardest difficulty you can literally not even watch the screen and win by spamming skills

    I would say the top 10 Japanese PS4 games for 2019 so far, listed by release date in North America, would be:

    – Ace Combat 7 (Jan 18)
    – Kingdom Hearts III (Jan 29)
    – God Eater 3 (Feb 8)
    – Jump Force (Feb 15)
    – Death end re;Quest (Feb 19)
    – Dead or Alive 6 (Mar 1)
    – Devil May Cry 5 (Mar 8)
    – Fate/EXTELLA LINK (Mar 19)
    – Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (Mar 22)
    – Zanki Zero (Apr 9)

    Doing some research, it kind of looks like this is most of the new Japanese games so far in 2019 (haha), but they’re all good games in my opinion and worth buying if they are in a genre you like. The only one getting less than 7’s out of 10 from most reviewers is Jump Force, and while that game’s not perfect it is getting *a lot* of play in our house.

    I applaud GameCross for bringing the focus for a moment to Japanese games. However this video’s list is a bit strange in that 6 out of the “Top 10” are ports that a lot of us have played on other systems. Onimusha (2001 on PS2), The Phoenix Wright Trilogy (2005-7 on DS), Vesperia (2008 on X360), Cold Steel (2013 on PS3/Vita), Steins;Gate (2009 JP, 2015 on PS3/Vita), and Nier:Automata (2017 on PS4) are *all* great games, but all six have been sitting in my collection for years. Shouldn’t the focus of a list like this be on new games? … And if you’re going to include ports and remasters, the Resident Evil 2 one this year is killer good.

  12. Ashton Tyler on February 23, 2021 at 10:12 pm

    Game Cross is there any update about Grand Blue Fantasy ReLink

  13. mj Big on February 23, 2021 at 10:13 pm

  14. xValsion on February 23, 2021 at 10:13 pm

    More Onimusha please Capcom! Remaster Genma, 2, 3, and DoD on the same disc. Then a new game with Samanosuke.

  16. Aamra Kamran on February 23, 2021 at 10:17 pm

    Kh3 is the best selling game of 2019 so far.

  17. Yu Tubaru on February 23, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    Kingdom hearts is the most western catered japanese games of them all, half the game is disney.

  18. Nizz LaRock on February 23, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    You really hate anime fandom

  21. Ghost in The shell on February 23, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    Japan makes the best games

  22. WarriYahTruth on February 23, 2021 at 10:26 pm

    Platinum games has some heat coming soon in 2019….Look out for that( creators of neir automata)

  23. Uchenna Obi on February 23, 2021 at 10:28 pm

    My number 1 Japanese game this year is Sekiro. I am shocked not on this list

  24. Alexander Bibby on February 23, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    I just finished The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel! Excellent Game, I loved it! Part 2 is on PSNow.

  25. foras592 on February 23, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    Dude wtf? How could you miss Resident Evil 2, Devil May Cry 5 and Sekiro?

  26. 🦂♏GlorifyDeathScorpioTerrorist♏🦂 on February 23, 2021 at 10:30 pm

    The only japanese games is the best is the Yakuza series

  28. PsyGnosiS on February 23, 2021 at 10:32 pm

    meh tales of vesperia , got bored after 10 hrs

  29. Branden Davis on February 23, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    I thought KH3 was a really really well made game the only thing I didnt really like was the big hero 6 world :/ it was a little lackluster in my opinion and could have been done at least slightly better

  30. Carlos Penuelas on February 23, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    From literally made the game for the home team…

  31. TrustOfFaith on February 23, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    Where is sekiro?

  32. Lekzie69 on February 23, 2021 at 10:38 pm

    resident evil 2 is (published and developed by capcom a japanese company) the best japanese game and the best game overall in 2019 followed by sekiro also a game made by japanese and devil may cry 5 also made by japanese spearheaded by itsuno a japanese citizen lol

  33. jgg86rpgs on February 23, 2021 at 10:40 pm

    Has "Our World has Ended" released yet?

  34. Sharda Little on February 23, 2021 at 10:41 pm

    what universe do you live in where kingdom hearts isn’t "catered to western audiences"???

  35. Chaos Iori on February 23, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    Undecided on replaying Cold Steel II after playing it on PSN Now. Anyone know if you can upload previous playthrough to the new PS4 release coming in June? Cold Steel III and IV will be a day one pre-order when they are announced;)

  36. mlal89 on February 23, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    I didn’t know Onimusha 2 was released for the PS4, gotta play that when I have some free time.

  37. Dank Farrik on February 23, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    So a lot of remakes, remasters and collections……
    Still great games but I never realized that not many Japanese style games are being released or being localized for the western market.

    Also if you say Sekiro and DMC 5 are too Western to be part of this list then you could argue KH3 shouldn’t be on the list either.

  38. mana beast on February 23, 2021 at 10:47 pm

    NO sekiro ?? Wow . Kingdom hearts is pure shit loved the first game but the recent one is so boring and just a mess.
    Sekiro is easily the best game overall this year w you like it or not.
    Best game by a mile not even a competition.
