It should be noted that it is not a perfect alternative as many games will experience text errors, crashing, or just plain not work while run using Locale Emulators, as opposed to properly setting your system to Japanese locale. So, while it may seem convenient at first, it is not a viable alternative for playing more than several games. You have been warned.
