Dlsite is a Japanese digital retail platform that hosts thousands of doujins, videos, hentai games, and other erotic content. This article explains the steps to download game files and install your purchased games from Dlsite.com.
You can test the download process without buying anything! DLsite offers free games in their “free items” section. For this tutorial, we will be downloading the free game Succubus x Saint for Windows PC.
Before you download the game, be sure to change your system locale to Japanese. Your computer will remain in English, and will now be able to understand Japanese program files. Side effects include changes with your word processors, like text being marked as misspelled when its perfectly fine. Also, some keyboard functions like the dash symbol, will have a different appearance on screen. If you’re not sure how to change system locale, read this DLsite article.
Once you’ve changed your system locale, simply add an item to your cart and proceed to checkout. To purchase adult games, you’ll need an account and bank card available. Paypal will only be allowed for non-pornographic purchases.
When logging into your newly made account, be aware that “login ID” just means your email. There are no usernames on DLsite, only emails. And your bank card can only be attached to one account at a time.
When the game is on your account, click the download button. This will download a zip file into your computer. Extract the game files, install the game, click the .exe file to play. Easy!
