PlayStation is far from being the king of Japan. Gaming in that region is dominated by Nintendo Switch and different mobile games. This is why many wonder if it is the beginning of the end for Japanese games on Japanese consoles. The answer seems to be negative.
Recently, Jim Ryan, head of Sony Interactive Entertainment globally, gave an interview to Famitsu (via Gematsu). In it they chatted about the relationship between PlayStation and Japan, as well as what the future holds.
In the conversation, Ryan explained that they will continue to work for games developed in Japan to reach PlayStation. He also recognized the strong link that the brand has with the games of this region and that is why they will maintain their relationship with series originating in Japan.
