STEAM games in Japanese.

I decided to check out the "Spec Ops : The Line" demo in Japanese today... it's as easy as switching your STEAM language to Japanese under the settings and restarting STEAM.

Once you've switched the language, any game you have that has Japanese localized content available will automatically download that localization and be ready to play in that language.

Spec Ops so far just has the menus and settings in Japanese, and the rest is subtitled. Still neat though. :) There are many other games partially and even fully localized to check out (including free ones, demos, etc).

One thing to note is that apparently each time you switch back to English (or whatever), and then back to Japanese again, it will download the localization files again. :sweatdrop:

Apparently now they've changed it to make it a bit easier...

Now you can just go to the properties for a given game and select which language you'd like to play just that game in. :D
