Math is a must, art classes, if your school has a class take a 3d animation course. mainly stay with computer classes. and of course you will need to learn Japanese.

Oh boy. Fun fun. I apologize if I come off as mean, but it's really the truth, my dear.

1. Square is a whore and probably wouldn't let Americans work over there else than like...translator or something.
2. Have fun learning Japanese.
3. I had the same dream in 8th grade and look at me now.
4. Your high school, if it's actually a cool one should have computer classes, clubs and all sorts of things for aspiring game designers. Your school should also have guidance counselors to help you through the school to find what you want to do and what you should do to acquire it. They may point you straight to Computer I though, so good luck. Just push through it. The cool classes come after that usually...
5. You're better off trying to find a company in America...Hell. Make your own company. Go big. No one wants to mop the floors of some Japanese building for the rest of their life.

I can see right through all your empty lies
I'm interested as well. And yeah, I'm entering high school as well. I'm felt what you're feeling right now when I was doing scheduling.

But first, you have to start off small and start learning some programming. You have to decided whether you aim for designing the game or coding the game. I'm aiming to be a programmer.

You should learn some computer languages, like HTML, which is used for making websites, and C++, the main video gaming coding language. You could learn HTML on your own, C++ you might need a little help. There's tons of websites on the internet. Game Programming, An Introduction - GameCareerGuide.com

If not, go into the designing field. Would you like to design the box, characters, etc.? Be familiar with programs like Photoshop, Paint Shop etc. If there's any drawing, graphic design classes, take them.

For clubs, take anything computer or art related. Maybe a Digital Photography club etc.

Don't go off to Japan yet. There's still lots to worry about, like SATs O_O.

I thought the branch over here was called SE NA, as in North America.
Really, all advice at this point is useless until you tell us what exact part of game making you want to do.

Because you're clearly as good as it gets, and dreams of not being as inept as you are plain balderdash, isn't that right?

When I buy out S-E I'll hire you there if you bring good resources to the table.

Oh yeah... Laugh now.... heh
