Japan is a country that has grown up with a vibrant gaming culture. Japanese gamers today, more so than ever before, are looking to the world for interesting gaming experiences and are enthusiastic to try out unique and interesting international titles. Sticky Rice provides the full life cycle of support services to enter Japan. We aim to assist game developers and publishers in reaching the Japan market through top-notch localization into Japanese and with our team including industry veterans to support your Japanese marketing efforts. Make Sticky Rice your partner for successful Japan launch of your games.

Localization
A well translated game will convey to potential Japanese customers that you care about the Japan market. Let our team handle your English to Japanese translation needs. If localization requires more than just translation we have programmers proficient in Unity and other development environments and expertise at modifying source code to support Japanese requirements.

CERO Age Ratings
Depending on the platform that you will be releasing your game in Japan you may need to apply for an official age rating. As a member of CERO, the Japanese agency responsible for age ratings, we can handle all aspects of CERO application at competitive pricing.

PlayStation Submissions
If you’ve developed a PlayStation game and want to self-publish in the Japan PlayStation store you may discovered that Sony’s FQA and submission process is challenging in Japanese. In addition to handing CERO application, as required by Sony, we can also manage all aspects of PlayStation submission for PS3, PS4, PS-Vita and PS-VR. Check out some of the companies we’ve helped.

Publishing
Sticky Rice on our own and through our Japanese partners is always on the lookout for interesting games that we can publish in Japan. We’ve supported dozens of games through the full publishing life-cycle from localization to sales and user support. Check out some of the titles that we’ve helped.
