Japan is a country in Eastern Asia. The country uses the CERO rating system to rate all Grand Theft Auto releases, with so far all of the series being rated Z (18+). Japan received Grand Theft Auto releases at a much later time, as it has taken a long time for Rockstar Games to localize them, which is done by Rockstar Japan. The GTA games are published in Japan mainly by Capcom which had released the following games:

Game World

3D era

The Yakuza is a real-life criminal organization based in Japan; it also appears in GTA III and GTA Liberty City Stories. Characters such as the Shon Kikuchi hail from Japan. There are also many Japanese products in the GTA games, such as Kakagawa appliances, Maibatsu vehicles, and A.M. Beer. The Kuruma may be a Japanese car, and 'kuruma' (くるま or 車) means 'car' in Japanese, although it can also be a Middle Eastern car, as Kuruma is Arabic for Pussy.

HD era

Japan is also responsible for the creation of the automaker Karin, though no imported JDM models appear, the same information applies to Dinka and Annis as well.
