Sony's Bringing Hit Western Games To Japan With Its World Game Project.

The initiative will see the platform holder bring a slew of hot Western titles to Japan's famous Akihabara district. Playable titles will include inFamous 2, Resistance 3, Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Shadows Of The Damned. Yes, we know the latter was actually developed in Japan but, well...

Sony will also show off footage of other upcoming games. Expect to see a bit of Uncharted 3 in there.

Traditionally Japanese gamers have shunned Western releases, though there are signs of the nation being a bit more inviting. Both L.A. Noire and inFamous 2 topped the Japanese sales charts last week, proving that Western games can succeed in the nation.

The World Game Project is set to kick off on July 23rd.
