The Pottermore Shop willlaunch in Japan later this summer, featuring Japanese-language e-book editions of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter novels published in ePub3 format. A Japanese version of the Pottermore Experience will debut at a date yet to be announced, according to the company.
Pottermore CEO Charlie Redmayne said the Harry Potter books “have been phenomenally popular in Japan and we are delighted now to make the e-book version available in Japanese. We will also soon be making the free to use Experience available–which will offer Japanese Harry Potter fans the chance to explore and discover new writing by J.K. Rowling as well as immerse themselves in some great interactive content and community activities.”
