Has Japan ever made a first person shooter?

The closest I can think of was Maken X for the Dreamcast, but that was years ago.

Maybe Japan should give a shot at this genre.

Those are on rail light gun games...except for survivor which was an oddity. A first person shooter controlled by a light gun, at least in the original Japanese version.

Still first person shooters in my opinion.

There was a Time Crisis released for the PS3 that was more moveable than the rest of the series.

Japanese FPS:

Outrigger (DC)
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (PSP)
Oretachi no Sabage Versus (PSP)

Metal Gear Arcade (there's an analog stick on the gun)
The Survival Game 1 & 2 (PS2 Simple 2000 series)

Not sure I can really count Killer7..


Also several levels in Time Crisis Razing Storm have free roam first person and some MGS games have first person mode

There's also Michigan: Report from Hell but it's not a shooter though it's in first person...

Wasn't Square making an FPS not too long ago? I don't remember the title of it, but they had a huge "announcement"/countdown thing for it. Everyone and their mother started screaming for a FF7 remake or the announcement date for Versus XIII, but it turned out to be that FPS game.
