From a slew of games being produced for the PSP, Japanese games arguably have the highest ratings and reviews from fans around the world. These games range everywhere from intense fighting scenarios all the way to elaborate strategic role-playing objectives, each one with a unique cast of characters, plots, and settings. We can say for certainty that these 10 Japaneses PSP games rank the highest among the many vying for your attention.

1. Monster Hunter Portable 3rd


Interested in taking up sword and magic to save the world from an onslaught of monsters? The real world might lack these types of quests, but Monster Hunter Portable 3rd will take you there in an instant.

The third installment in the series, Monster Hunter features an action role-playing game in a high fantasy environment. As indicated by the title, the player enters the game as a hunter and quests to both capture and kill a wide range of monsters. Highly praised in its graphics and game play, Monster Hunter 3rd truly transports the player to a fun, and equally as challenging, gaming world.  Although the game is conducted entirely in Japanese, the objectives are straightforward and easy to comprehend regardless of language. We think this game is an absolute must for the PSP, as it includes user-friendly game play and addicting battles all in one graphically beautiful setting. 

2. Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep

    Square Enix

Any fan of the Kingdom Hearts series, Disney tales, or even imaginative game play, will love this prequel to the acclaimed Kingdom Hearts Franchise.

The game follows the stories of three individual heroes,Terra, Venta, and Aqua, ten years before the original, who all take the player on three unique stories. The over-arching plot then reveals itself through the completion of each character's journey. With numerous customizable options for the controls, multiplayer opportunities, and new character content, the game fairs well in its place within the Kingdom Hearts legacy. The game features the nostalgic Disney worlds such as  Deep Space, Neverland, and Olympus Coliseum, all to pay homage to the older games while also adding a fresh variety. It also does well in creating emotional attachment with the viewer and the three different perspectives they play all throughout. Birth by Sleep does not disappoint, and we think its a beautiful game for lovers of gaming and Kingdom Hearts alike.

3. Valkyria Chronicles III: Unrecorded Chronicles


Have a passion for dramatic battles, stories of redemption, and historical fiction?Then the third game of the Valkryia Chronicles is the perfect fit for your gaming needs.

Strategy and role-playing make up the majority of this game as the player follows a penal military unit called "The Nameless" on a series of dangerous missions. The unit includes a variety of societal misfits such as global criminals to even military offenders. Already coming from a highly praised franchise, this game follows its predecessor's momentum in wowing the players with unique character designs and exceptional art.  Through a linear set of missions to be completed, more and more maps are revealed and accessible to the player. The player also has a lot of power in deciding how the maps are unlocked and which courses they choose to embark and prioritize. Accompanied by a memorable soundtrack, the game sets a dark tone which successfully emphasizes the historical setting of the Second European War. Those who already fell in love the other Valkyria Chronicles games are sure to love this third sequal with more worlds and characters to explore and conquer. 

4. Jean D'Arc
