Japanese theme

Culture theme

Includes a Japanese theme, yet is not necessarily tied to the geographical location nor the actual culture in anything but appearance.


The first video game about Japanese theme was released in 1987.

Square Enix, Eidos Interactive and Digital Extremes has published most of these games

These likely have samurai, feudal era architecture, Shinto shrines/temples, onmyouji, etc.

Note that simply being located in Japan does not qualify for this as like the rest of the world, modernization has made cultures seem outwardly very much alike.
