Looking to dig into some Japanese RPG games? Maybe some anime games? Either way, Steam is here to provide. Golden Week has started, and the collection of Japanese holidays once again means it’s time for the Steam Golden Week sale, offering a steep discount across a massive range of titles developed in Japan.
You can check out a big ol’ list of deals on the Steam page, which is broken down across categories like RPGs, fighting, hack and slash, platformer, visual novel, and the like. The deals include massive triple-A titles – like Monster Hunter World, the Resident Evil 2 remake, and Monster Hunter World – alongside a host of obscurities.
Some of the highlights include the Yakuza series, which you still really need to play – Yakuza 0, the best entry point, is down to just $6.79 / £5.09 / €6.79. You can also get some nice savings on the whole Final Fantasy series, including the original FF7, perfect if you’re looking for some nostalgia ahead of the eventual PC version of the Final Fantasy VII remake.
Personally, I’ve been toying with the idea of getting deep into visual novels with something like Muv-Luv – currently down to $20.99 / £16.65 / €19.59 – but I’m not quite sure I’m ready to indulge my weeb tendencies to this degree.
If you want to shop around, you can head to the Humble Store or Green Man Gaming – both storefronts are offering similar deals for Golden Week, including keys redeemable on Steam.
