Amazon Japan is now offering international shipping for video games, meaning that those who import Japanese games now have a more affordable means of doing so.
While the new option is available only for products sold by specifically from Amazon, it will allow users a much cheaper alternative to typical importing, as shipping fees can reach astronomical levels when packages are traveling across territories. Twitter and NeoGAF users have been testing out the new feature, and are reporting back with positive results.
This means that if you’re looking for a game that’s only being released in Japan, you’ll still have an affordable way to get your hands on them instead of resorting to expensive third-party sellers. If you can’t read Japanese, be sure to click on the “In English” option at the top of the site for easy navigation.
