Japanese Romance Games

Museum Centre Vapriikki, Tampere

  • 4.5.2024–10.11.2024

The exhibition shows what types of Japanese romance games are out there and their influences on games outside of Japan. Please enjoy! Yoroshiku onegaishimasu!


Japanese popular culture has grown in popularity at rapid speed since the 1990s. Well known gaming franchises like Mario, Pokmon and Final Fantasy turned Japanese video games into a global phenomenon. As a result, Japanese romance games have also become very popular. They used to only be created for a very niche and small market in Japan, but with the growing globalisation of Japanese video games, many people around the world also play Japanese romance games.

Japanese romance games are character-focused games in which players gradually build a romantic relationship with their favourite character over time. They are slow-paced and usually contain lots of text. Despite that Japanese romance games are not associated with typical video games, they have managed to gather a steady fan-base around the globe. If you wish to know what these games look like or wish to learn a bit more about Japanese game culture and their influences outside Japan, youre welcome to visit the exhibition from May 4th on!
