    I have found that there are a few Japan-only games that are 100% playable by people who know absolutely no Japanese at all. Could I please get a list? I do not care about genre. I simply wish to know what of the many Japan-only games I am able to play.

    I found out about a few by Googling, but it appears that I cannot find a comprehensive list, which is why this topic exists now.

    The List, as it is so far:
    Taiko no Tatsujin DS series
    Osu Tatakae Ouendan series
    Little Charo Travels in English
    Jump Ultimate/Super Stars
    KORG M01 Music Workstation
    Umihara Kawase
    Tales of Hearts I do not consider it playable unless whatever story it has can be understood without googling.
    Ketsui Death Label
    Tales of Innocence
    One Piece - Gigant Battle
    Daigasso! Band Brothers DX
    Densha de Go
    Dragon Ball Kai - Ultimate Butouden
    Kidou Shenshi Gundam 00 DS
    SaGa 2 - Hihou Densetsu - Goddess of Destiny
    Utacchi

    What is this game about? I can only find information about other games with KORG in the name.

    Also, Umihara Kawase is a platformer that doesn't require a knowledge of Japanese

    All Pokemon games, I basically go through them all in Japanese with no knowledge at all.

    It's a very easy music machine for the DS. It is much easier than KORG's first DS synthesizer.
    It is only released in Japan, but it is fully English.

    Fun fact: they spelled "KORG Music Workstation" as "KORG Music Workstaiton" on the main menu.

    Oh, so it is Garage Band for the DS? That seems fun!

    Tales of Hearts, all you have to do is walk around until crap happens.

    Tales of Innocence which has been fully translated.

    One Piece - Gigant Battle (though it's being released in Europe) which uses an enhanced version of Jump! Ultimate Stars' engine as well as some RPG elements.

    Daigasso! Band Brothers DX

    Densha de Go (series), and it's about trains, not Go (though it's actually quit fun and is recommended among Import Gamers).

    Dragon Ball Kai - Ultimate Butoden (Which is being translated, though you don't need to be able to read Japanese to play it).

    Kidou Senshi Gundam 00 DS

    Saga 2 DS (Which has been translated fully)

    As this is in the Nintendo DS Section, I do not believe this suggestion should go here. It may be Japanese, but what I could find of it suggested it is not on the DS.
