Japanese GB and GBC (English friendly)
« on: December 07, 2016, 01:41 AM »
Any good games that are Japanese "only" but still have English text (or doesn't require English to understand the game and still have fun), or has a fan translation?

One example is Ninja Spirit for the original Gameboy. As far as I can tell all the menus and level screens are in 'english' but the game was never released to English speaking audiences.

Chikyū Kaihō Gun ZAS  (or just ZAS)

Great GB shoot-em-up that does some pretty impressive graphical tricks to really push the hardware limits. Japanese release only.

Fan translations here: http://www.romhacking.net/?page=translations&platform=8&languageid=12&perpage=20&order=Status

Just off the top of my head, I would say Wizardry I-III, Cave Noire, Mario Picross 2, Ikari no Yousai 2, and Kaeru no Tame ni Kane wa Naru are the ones I've played the most.

I'd have to browse through my collection to find good ones with little-to-no Japanese.

Ya, love Romhacking.net and its translation section!

Can't wait to play through Parallel Trippers.

Although there are some other classic gamebory RPGS I'd love to see translations for....

"Legend" looks interesting.
