Japanator and Siliconera are merging!

Japan News - Tue, 02/11/2020 - 06:00

We are about to head into a new era… a Siliconera, if you will. Siliconera and Japanator are teaming up. All of the news and features you’d expect from Japanator are going to find a new home at Siliconera, where we’ll all work together to talk about our passion for Japanese games and culture. Now that we’re both part of the same network, we feel like it’s only natural to perform a Fusion Dance and team up.

Don’t think of this as a goodbye. Think of this as a “We’re moving down the street.” The people you know and love from Japanator will all still be here. We’re just all coming together as one community. You’ll just stop at this website to visit Japanator instead:
