At 1990, IBM Japan had released "Japanese PC DOS 4.0/V". The system enables a standard PC compatible to handle Japanese letter by displaying 16x16 letters on VGA 640x480 screen. Following IBM, Microsoft and Digital Research were released similar systems. These systems are known generically as "DOS/V". The DOS/V made computer (or anti-NEC) users glad, however, the architecture was not spread efficiently before Japanese Windows 3.1 was released.

After Japanese Windows 3.1 was released in 1993, DOS/V had been speread gradually, and several game softwares are released for the system.

Micromouse was a company for import foreign games to Japan. The company got an right to import/translate LucasArts games. Micromouse translate/port several adventure/starwars games to Japanese Mac/DOS/Windows/PC-98x1 systems. Micromouse may be closed on 2006 or 2007.
