I was walking to a friend’s house for dinner when I spotted a red box on the curb.
It was a box of English sheepdogs, the latest in a long line of games from a company called English.
It wasn’t clear how the box had ended up in my hands, but the box looked like it was destined for the landfill.
I quickly picked up the sheepdog and headed home.
But I was in luck.
English is a Japanese game developer whose name stands for English Sheepdog Games, and the company has been making English-language games since 2007.
While English games are not as popular in Japan as they are in the United States, they still make up about one-third of all games sold in the country, according to NPD data.
They also make up a large portion of the digital sales in Japan.
There are a few things English game makers need to understand when making games for the West: English is a national language, and Japanese companies don’t often invest in the U.S. market.
That means they can’t really make games in English, but English-speaking customers can still buy them online.
English games also don’t come cheap.
English game developers are usually expected to spend about $3,000 to $4,000 for each game sold.
The cost of making English games can vary wildly depending on how many copies of a game are sold.
For example, a game that sold 1,000 copies in Japan costs about $2,500 in the West.
But there are exceptions.
A few of the best-known English-only games from the past few years are called English games that are available on iOS or Android, but not on Nintendo Switch, Sony’s PlayStation 4, or Microsoft’s Xbox One.
Here’s a breakdown of the top English-focused games on the market in the past six months.
(Some of these are not quite ready for the U, but they’re still worth checking out.)
The English games from this year include the upcoming, free-to-play Pokémon Sun and Moon.
In March, the English-exclusive indie game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim earned $50 million on Steam.
It’s the first major title from Bethesda, publisher of Skyrim and the Elder Scrolls series, to break the $1 billion sales barrier in Japan, according the company.
The game has sold more than 200 million copies worldwide, according Steam statistics.
(The game is available on Xbox One, PS4, PlayStation 4 Pro, and PC.)
In September, English-free version of The Elder Scroll V: Legends of Ariandel was released on Android and iOS devices.
The game has already earned over $1 million on Google Play.
A number of English-first games have also received critical acclaim.
In May, the Japanese indie game Final Fantasy XV earned $5 million on Kickstarter.
It is the first game in the series to reach that milestone in Japan and has become the top-grossing video game in Japan since its debut in the spring of 2018.
And in October, English games developer The Chinese Room published a free, localized version of its upcoming RPG, The Last Guardian.
The Last Guard was developed by the Chinese studio GungHo and published by Japanese publisher NIS America.
It will be available on PlayStation 4 and PC.
Other English-centric games include the hit smartphone title Dragon Quest Heroes, a free-form role-playing game, and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, a new 3D Zelda game with the same name.
(In Japan, the Legend of Heroes franchise is owned by Square Enix.)
