Where Japanese games reach the world.
JAST USA is the premier publisher of dating-sim games and visual novels in English, having gotten our start back in 1998, which feels like 5 decades ago in Internet Years.
Our small yet amazing team of developers and translators specialize in localizing Japanese visual novels and JRPGs into English. There are a lot of challenges with this process, and no two games are alike. Our goal is always to make a localization that is at least equal to, if not better than, the original, whenever possible. It's hard work, but it's pretty awesome!
We partner with game studios to release their works for their worldwide fans to enjoy, sharing the sales directly with the original artists and content creators. We're dedicated to delivering an honest localization of the original story and supporting Japan's indie developers.
Why do we do this? Because we are more than just a company – we are fans too.
We love visual novels and enjoy the rich stories and characters that they offer. We are simply overjoyed that customers, like you, are happy to support us in our efforts to bring these unique products to more and more people.
