The Steam Next Fest is being held until February 28 at 10 a.m. (PST), so to celebrate, we’ve put together a list of 10 demos for Japanese games that you can try out during the event.
A top-down cooperative action game where players form a three-person party consisting of a DPS, a tank, and a healer to take on a boss rush.
A visual novel where the player turns evildoers’ minds into a flower garden by hacking into their brains and rewriting their personalities. The game only supports Japanese at the time of release, but the developers plan to localize it later on.
A cute 2D action-adventure game where you switch between a hammer-wielding girl and a gun-wielding girl to take out enemies.
A fishing RPG where you spend time in the afterlife fishing and interacting with a charming cast of characters.
A casual one-button 2D action game where you adjust the height of the protagonist’s jump attack according to the position of enemies.
A pixel art 2D roguelite action game where you try to conquer a tower filled with monsters. The game promises “Exhilarating action with easy controls.”
A remake of a popular one-dimensional roguelike RPG that was released in Japan in 2015. You dive into a waking dream to face forgotten memories from childhood and face the difficulties the protagonist faced in the past, such as eating vegetables they didn’t like or being bullied at school.
A 3D adventure game where you help a dragon girl named Shirone solve puzzles and find her way out of a haunted castle.
A vertical scrolling shooter where you charge a powerful ability called the “Graze Counter” by grazing past enemy attacks.
An updated version of the 2013 title Phantom Breaker: Extra, which is a 1 on 1 2D anime fighting game released by Mages.
