Hearthstone – Japan server revealed with localized text and voice-overs

A few days back, Blizzard Entertainment announced it is bringing Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft to Japan. Hundreds of thousands of Japanese gamers are already playing non-localized versions of Hearthstone, but soon everyone in Japan will have access to a fully localized Japanese-language version, making it easier than ever to pull up a chair and get in on all the card-slinging action.

Hearthstone will be available in Japan for iOS and Android mobile phones; Windows, iOS, and Android tablets; and Windows and Mac PCs. Localized versions of all content currently available in the game will be available for purchase in the in-game Shop with the launch of the Japanese version, providing gamers with limitless possibilities for fine-tuning their deck-building strategies.


Deceptively simple, yet insanely fun, players choose an epic Warcraft hero to play as, and then take turns playing cards from their customizable decks to cast potent spells, use heroic weapons or abilities, or summon powerful characters to crush their opponent. Further specific details on Blizzard’s launch plans for the Japanese version of Hearthstone will be announced at a later date.
