Where can I find Princess Maker?

Frequently Asked Question:  Where can I download Princess Maker (#)?

Answer:  I don't support this sort of thing.  I understand how hard it is to find foreign games when you're in a country that they aren't produced in (Such as the Americas, Europe, Australia, etc), however it's really not that hard to find them to purchase.  I will help people who are searching for a place to purchase the games.  I have composed a list of places you can find the Princess Maker games in varying languages.  They were never translated over to English.  Only one company had attempted such a project, which would be Princess Maker 2 - and that project has since been abandoned.  You can read about that here.  Here is a list of retail online stores you can purchase the different games from for varying consoles.  If you truly love this game series and support it, please try one of the stores.  Japanese Computer games will work on English versions of Windows with little or no problems, though it helps to have NJWin installed for the top menus to be in some sort of kana if you can read Japanese.

Retail stores

National Console Support, Inc
Address: http://www.ncsx.com

The Info: This store has been around for several years.  I do believe they will ship all over the world, but are based in the United States.  They're inventory is filled with many import games for many consoles.  They have several shipping options and are a trustworthy site.  New York residents do have to pay sales tax.

PM Games available:

Princess Maker Puzzle - "Princess Maker Pocket Daisakusen"
By Ninelives
Console: Sony Playstation
Price: $49
Info on the Game: It's the Princess Maker puzzle game where you can play either Maria, Olive, or Lisa in different puzzle situations.  Not the greatest game ever, but it's one of the games based on the genre.  Japanese language version.

Princess Maker Collection
By GeneX
Console: Sega Dreamcast
Price: $49
Info on the Game: Princess Maker 2 and Princess Maker (3): Yume Miru Yousei in one single GDRom disk.  Fully voiced and based off the Windows versions of both games (Pm2 Windows version, not to be confused with Pm2 DOS version which had no voices and used different music.)  Despite what the site says, it has NOTHING to do with the original Princess Maker, you cannot play that version in this game.  It only has 2 and 3.  Japanese language version.

Himeya Soft, Inc
Address: http://www.himeya.com (Go to the English shop)

The Info: Making their niche among such famous hentai game producers as Jast, Himeya brought over various 'hentai' styled games to the English speaking audiences.  While that would be their original business, their shop actually has a great deal of import games available for purchase on different consoles, including PC/Windows.  I'm unsure of their shipping options, but I believe they ship directly from Japan (As EMS is one of their shipping methods).  Even choosing the slower method, I got my game really fast from them.

Princess Maker - Yume Miru Yousei (Princess Maker 3)
By: NineLives
Price: ???
Info on the Game: Princess Maker 3 for PC!  You get to raise a young girl who wants to become a human Princess from the ages of 10-18 years old.  This is the Chinese Language version.  Also, for some reason - even though Yesasia lists it, this game has always been Out of Stock and has never listed the price.  You might get lucky, or you may be able to contact them about when they'll get it in stock.  I have never ordered from them to give you a positive or negative review of their site, just that the game is listed.

Princess Maker Q
By: NineLives
Price: ???
Info on the Game: A Princess Maker Quiz game featuring the daughter of Princess Maker 4.  If you do not have a system that can support Chinese fonts (And I mean, one that can handle them, not just display them by using NJwin), you will get an error message right at the beginning of the game.  Basically it runs, but you don't get very far unless you're in a Chinese or Japanese version of Windows.  The distributers website does not have a patch for such a thing.  Yesasia has it listed, but it has always been out of stock.  Same thing for Pm3, I've never ordered from them to give a positive or negative review.  This is a Chinese language version of the game.

JpopHelp Music and Books
Address: http://www.jpophelp.com
The Info: Looks like a website that actually has the game music cds available for purchase.  They have the SM (SonMay) Chinese / Bootleg versions of the soundtracks, and an import of another soundtrack.  Here's the link to those search results.  I haven't purchased anything from them before, so I'm not sure how well their shipping is.

This varies from week to week.  I have seen just about every game up and available with the exception of one or two.  The only thing you may not be able to find is the Sega Dreamcast "Princess Maker Collection", because for some reason I heard something about Sega getting on eBay about selling Japan DC games and they cracked down on it, so they are no longer available.  PC, Saturn, PSX, and SuperFamicom versions have been available through eBay though.  Huzzah!
