Can I Use a UK Account on a Japanese Game?

Just recently, I ordered a Japanese game from a site and currently waiting for import (to replace my GTA V). I wanna ask if this UK account can be use on JP game to sync trophies (it does work on GTA V which is an R3 asian copy). I have inactive JP account in case if it's not compatible.

as far as i heard only Japanese accounts can play Japanese exports. after White Knight was shut down a lot of people got the Japenese one and they had to use a Japanese account to play it.

only NA/UK games can be used on your UK account.

It's because White Knight had online play. The game I would buy is single-player or 2-player co-op (dunno if they had online).

You can PLAY import games, however if you want to use any downloads for the game, you'll have buy them from the Japanese PSN Store, and that means you'll have to pay for them in Japanese Yen.

That was I though how this UK account works on an R3 game.
Glad that Playstation is region-free!

Some games, if you buy the Japanese version, you can get all the trophy's again, with mag, for some reason despite the games being identical, you can (could) buy the JP version and unlock them all a second time, if you wanted 2 plats.
