Windows 7 and japanese games

I am building a new computer. But I am having trouble fidnign out if I can install japanese games using Win7 Home.
Some have said no...some yes.
On my WinXP, it seems easy to just select the unicode or locale (or where ever) change it. then install and play.
Anyone have any experience installing Japanese games on Win7?

The installer **** is in Japanese, but you can still install it and execute it. There should be no problem on most games.

Windows 7 uses unicode by default. Just download the Japanse langage pack. The game should work fine without chaning your system.

Some games require Locale even on W7 x64, but most should work. However, a lot of games have messed up Installer Notes & Logs and sometimes does not create a proper naming scheme for files and folders. those you might need to update manually by renaming them.
