Key Take Away “Asia” is not a market. Korea, China, Japan are markets. (and there are much more!) Asia has big market numbers. This doesn’t mean it’s less competitive. (Actually the reverse) It is possible for Western games to be successful in Asian markets: although it needs dedication per market and correct local approaches There is no cross-Asian key player(publisher), hence there cannot be a cross-Asian partner, not yet. More Western games will make it to Asia, but more Asian games will also come to the West
