 Japan’s procedure continues to gradually move forward. However,

there are still many major steps that must be accomplished for the gaming industry to lay its roots in this East Asian country. In order to understand the current timeline,

was originally slated for an early 2020 release. Since then,

the release has been pushed back once to March,

and after bribery scandals and COVID-19, the Basic Policy still remains in a draft state as of today.
