Planning to play the Japanese Beta or Import Dissidia NT? Importing FAQ

Recommended Posts

Afternoon guys, I been getting a large number of questions these past few days about Japanese PSN's and importing the game for the earlier Japanese launch. So i thought I would put together a quick FAQ for playing either the Japanese Beta or the Japanese version of the full game.

 

Q1: Is it easy to create a Japanese PSN account?

Yes the hardest part is getting an Japanese address to use for your details, once you solved that issue, it easy as pie, after creating your JP account, login to the account via a new profile on your PS4.

Q2: How do I create a Japanese PSN account

There are plenty of guides around the internet, a quick google and you should have your account created in no time.

Q3: I created my account, how do I access the open beta the awesome japanese are doing?

You first need to wait until Midnight Friday morning JST (that is 3PM GMT or 10AM EST) then head to the PSN store on your Japanese profile, the store will be in Japanese but you can find search at the top of the store screen, then just search dissidia (Dissidia is still in English Text on the JP store) and you should find the beta as a free download.

Beta will be open on the 23rd, 24th, 30th and 31st December and 6th and 7th January, the beta will be open from 6PM JST to 11PM JST on these days (that 9AM - 2PM GMT and 4AM EST - 9AM EST, Sorry America :( ) 

Q4: I liked the beta, I want to import! what are my options?

You got 2 options, you can either buy a physical copy and get it delivered, I recommend Amazon Japan or Play-Asia for this, they both take western credit cards and Play-Asia even accepts PayPal! while you get a nice clean box and disc, you might be waiting on delivery and your looking at up to 20$ (£15) for express delivery if you want the game by launch day.

Your other option is to buy the digital version off  the Japanese PSN store, the advantage is A, you can download the game on the 8th and play at midnight JST on the 11th (that 3PM GMT and 10AM EST on Wednesday 10th, you can play it a day early :D) and b, no shipping costs The disadvantage is you need to get PSN cards for the JP PSN store as you cannot use English cards/paypal on the JP Store. Good news is Play-Asia which I mentioned before does digital PSN cards. Also,  it costs more, your looking at £75 (or 100$) to buy the game off PSN.

Q5: Do I need to play on my terribly named JP PSN account to play the Japanese Beta/Import

NOPE! once you have downloaded the beta/game you can switch to your English PSN account and play on there, you even gain trophies and trophies even carry over from the Japanese game to the English one!! You can even play online using your English PSN account (You WILL need PS+ for the final game but NOT for the open beta.)

Q6: This download takes forever!!!! Do I have to wait on my JP account while it downloads?

Again NOPE!!!! You can start the download, then switch to your English account and play other games and the download will continue.in the background. Updates will download as long as you got update auto-download turn on without needing to login to your Japanese account.

Q7: DLC came out, do I need to buy the DLC off the JP store for my Japanese copy?

Yes, English DLC Download will not work on a Japanese version of a game, you must buy DLC off the English store for the English version and JP DLC for the JP version of the game.

Q8: Can I play my friends with their English copy on my JP copy?

Yes, You can play English players with your Japanese copy. 

Q9: Will the JP version have any sort of English text?

We are not sure, assume that it does not.

 

Hope this helps out players that are looking to join the Japanese beta but are not sure on certain things and/or want to import but wasn't sure about some things.

See you on the battlefield!
