Can you play Japanese PS4 games in English?

Both the PS4/NS versions support English. A lot of games will have iconography or something to show that it supports English, so you could just look for that. If you check Play-Asia, they will generally list if the game has English support as well, but you have to pay attention if the title is Japanese or Asian.

PS5 games will be region free, according to the FAQ, which means you’ll be able to play games from other countries without any issues.
