    Well not necessarily, I can't access the Japanese store on my American account, so the games are technically locked to the region, the only way to access the game is to make a Japanese account

    yes but the game wont allow you to connect to the servers unless you are in Japan he needs a VPN

    Well even if you get into the game it wont allow you to join any servers unless your location is in Japan would have to use a vpn there

    what I mean is that those games aren't downloadable on an American account, so the games are locked to the region of Japan

    Not true, you can access the servers anywhere, there would just be a hellalot of lag. Remember the Res Evil "cloud version"? You can play the games anywhere, with any account, you just need a JP account to download it.

    yes the game will launch but its an online game and will not allow you to connect to the servers if your location is not Japan so you would need a VPN

    Even with a VPN that thing must be so lagged super slow from us to Japan that is probably better to forget it...
