Users in Japan are privileged to have some exclusive Nintendo Switch games. Like a few generations ago —a good example could be franchising fire emblema license with many titles released only in their country of origin—the hybrid’s Japanese catalog has several experiments that did not reach the West. And although Shin Chan’s Title Did Itwhat is certain is that it’s a rare case.
So the popular outcry got Shin Chan: My Summer with the Professor – The Infinite Week leave Japan shortly after its release. However, as we said, Usually this does not happen.. And because of that, even in presentations like the Nintendo Direct they can see each other exclusive games from this region which do not appear in the presentation of the other countries.
For this reason, we wanted to make a compilation with Japan-exclusive games we’d love to see on Nintendo Switch. You will see several examples, some more famous and some less so, that users would love to see in their country. In fact, maybe if they’re making a lot of noise, as happened with the game Shin Chan, it’s possible the distributors will take notice.
The Japan-exclusive Nintendo Switch games we want to see in the West
Dragon Quest X (Square Enix)
Truth ahead: fans of the franchise couldn’t make more noise. Despite this, Square Enix continues to ignore their requests and, to date, nothing is known of a hypothetical release outside of Japan that would sell like hot cakes. However, it seems that the clamor of the followers is not enough for the company and this, beyond confirmation of title edition for asian country, has nothing to say about his departure to the West.
Yo-Kai Watch 4 (Level 5)
Another example that sometimes no matter how much the community demands, they can’t get anything. Although the fourth installment of the well-known series debuted over three years ago, western gamers still haven’t heard of the game. No more Bad state of level 5 (drift projects, dismissal of workers…) or due to the lack of confidence in the franchise outside of Japan, the truth is that The years pass and the title still does not arrive. A pain.
Metal Dogs (24 Frame, Inc.)
metal dogs This is one of the most curious cases on this list. The title, far from Nintendo Switch, can be obtained outside of Japan without too many problems. However, when it comes to its version for the hybrid, It is only available in Asian country. Unfortunately, those who want to enjoy its premise, full of action and futuristic dogs, won’t be able to do so until it decides to cross the pond.

Tabe-O-Ja (Bandai Namco)
Of Tabe-O-Jaas with so many other titles on this list, We had already offered you information at the time. However, although the title was released last November 2020, western users still no news of the title. The truth, given its artistic style and its curious proposal, is that this situation is a real shame both for the players and for the possible followers of an experience with high appeal.

Buddy Mission: Bond (Ruby Party)
A few months ago, users of the Nintendo Switch online service in Japan had the opportunity to access this game for free. Thanks to this, they were able to enjoy an adventure fairly followed by Western audiences who, nearly two years later, still has no intention of leaving Japan. If so, players will be able to enjoy an experience that is as personal as it is different.

Megaton Musashi (level 5)
Another case similar to Yo Kai Watch 4. Even though Megaton Musashi is very popular in Japan, even reaching confirm collaborations with Mazinger-Z, Today, we do not know if the title will leave this country. Unfortunately, the current state of the business outweighs fan desire. In the future, maybe if things go well, who knows if this mecha franchise will dare cross the pond.

Among the Japan-exclusive Nintendo Switch games, this is probably one of the most eye-catching. In the, the premise is to live a daily life without a lot of shocks. However, while it may not sound flashy, the “sauce” of the game is in fights against supernatural enemies. Due to its aesthetic and premise, if it were to debut outside of Japan, it would most likely be a real hit among fans of Marvelous’ proposals (Senran Kagura, rune factory…).
Taiko Risshiden V DX (Koei)
Maybe taiko rishiden not be a very popular franchise in the West. However, this particular series with tactical confrontations is one of the most loved in japan. For this reason, on May 19, users in the Asian country enjoyed a new episode with which they experienced unprecedented adventures. However, outside of Japan, everything indicates that Nintendo Switch players will not be able to get their hands on this proposition.

Konami eBaseball Mighty Pro Baseball 2022 (Konami)
Baseball may be The most popular sport in Japan. For decades, people in the Asian country have enjoyed the matches in a way that paralyzes the country. Therefore, it is understandable that Konami’s new proposal has not abandoned its country of origin, even more so if we take into account that In few regions is this sport valued as much. However, despite this, it’s a shame that such a fun title failed to cross the pond.
