Hopefully I'm asking this in the right section.

So, as the title says, I'm thinking of importing a Japanese game but I wanted to make sure of something. Would the game play on my NA account or would I have to make a Japanese account?

Guy i don't even know what system of device you're talking about :'3
If you're talking about a Sony Device PSP VIta PS3 PS4 i'm pretty sure they aren't regional locked.

I'm 100% sure that the Ps4 isnt region locked though

S3/Vita/PS4 systems aren't region locked. If you want DLC you need a JP account. If there are patches, they'll download automatically. Certain games like Gundam Extreme VS also require a JP account for multiplayer, as you need to enter an Online Pass code.

My apologies, but you are right. Looking to import a game for the Vita. Forgetting to add that was an oversight on my part, but ty for answering.

Physical copies of Vita games are region-free. You will not need to modify your system or your account in order to use them.
