Full localization for the EVE Online client in the Japanese language is now live! It’s a momentous occasion for all of New Eden, but especially for the dedicated and passionate Japanese EVE Online community.
This project has been the result of a successful cooperation between CCP, the Japanese EVE-playing community, and our experienced partners.
This is just the beginning as we will be constantly looking to improve and enhance the experience for our Japanese players, and for all of the languages we support with EVE Online.
There will be a New Eden welcome for the Japanese community with an official launch celebration. Join us on CCPTV for a sakura-inspired fireworks celebration today at 12:00 UTC. CCPTV will be providing streamed coverage throughout portions of the day, and again on 12 December at 11:30 UTC with a conversation between leaders of the Japanese EVE community. Come and hear about the exciting activities and opportunities in the EVE Japan community!
To celebrate the release of Japanese localization for the EVE Online client, you can get the brand new and exciting Zakura Starter Packs featuring Omega, PLEX, Skill Points, Zakura Shumyu SKINs and Zakura Zakitsu apparel that have been specially-designed to celebrate Japanese Capsuleers, Multiple Character Training and more! These packs can only be purchased once per account, and only until 11:00 UTC on 26 January.
In addition, the Zakura Shumyu SKIN will also be available for the Apocalypse, Golem, Kronos, Megathron, Paladin, Raven, Tempest, and Vargur in EVE Online’s New Eden Store until 11:00 UTC on 26 January! As well as being available individually, you can also buy them in the Battleship Zakura and Marauder Zakura SKIN bundles in the New Eden Store, saving 15% on each.
