I really hope the Japanese community is still with us. I had some questions that I don't know still. Do the Japanese have access to the USA servers to play? I have yet to run into someone that speaks the tongue. With the game close to launch I hope as a man from the Kurita faction we will have our fellow international brothers and sisters to join us in the fight.

I'm not Japanese but I do live on the outskirts of Yokohama, so I can at least confirm that we do have access to the US servers. That said, I only know of one or two Japanese people that play this game. Honestly, I don't think the series was ever all that big out here (at least, hasn't been for a very long time). Even so, I'm trying to get a couple of the guys at the office to give it a try, so hopefully that'll help :)

The Japanese forum has been pretty much dead for the past few months...

プレーしている人がいるかどうか分からないけど、フォーラムでポストしているは大体いないらしいです。今日はローンチの日なので、新しいゲーマーが多分来るだと思いますけど、このフォーラムが蘇られるかどうか分かりません。

Possibly, but I haven't seen anything in the way of marketing out here. I also think they'd have better luck with a Japanese version of the website/client. Unfortunately that seems unlikely, according to Bryan's comments regarding localization on the recent NGNG podcast.

Ultimately I think the majority of Japanese players will be holdouts from the old Japanese releases of BT/MW -- as far as I can tell, there's not much being done to attract new blood.

Sadly, yes.

In terms of international vehicle sims Japan seems to be more into World of Tanks than most anything else at the moment.

ロンチ以降、少しずつですが日本人口も増えているようです。
ニコニコ動画で配信している人も見かけるようになりました。

しかし、やはり、知名度が圧倒的に低いですね。

東京在住の日本人です。

Killercageさんの仰るとおり、日本での知名度は低いと思います。
元々のボードゲームのBT/MWですら、一部の人間が認知していた程度と考えて良いと思います。

また、MW2、MW3、MW4の時代は日本語版があって、比較的敷居が低かったと思うのですが、MWOはプレイ自体は英語のみなので、手に出しにくいのかも知れません。



I am a Japanese who lives in Tokyo.

I agree with Killercage. MWO has a low profile in Japan.
Few people had even known the MW/BT board games once.

MW2,MW3,MW4 games' Japanese versions were released and had mass appeal.
MWO is only released in English and it is difficult for Japanese players to play because of the language barrier.

英語の壁は思っているより大きいですね。
不完全でも日本語化されている Warframe や Hawken に比べると、
ニコニコ動画での検索結果は歴然。

というか、MWO の動画上げてるの、最近じゃ私だけですし。

ロンチ後、新規の方や復帰された方も、ちょいちょいいらっしゃるみたいですけどねぇ。

動画はちょいと前のパソスペックだと辛いのもありますね。
