Japanese popular culture has grown in popularity at rapid speed since the 1990s. Well known gaming franchises like Mario, Pokémon and Final Fantasy turned Japanese video games into a global phenomenon. As a result, Japanese romance games have also become very popular. They used to only be created for a very niche and small market in Japan, but with the growing globalisation of Japanese video games, many people around the world also play Japanese romance games.
