    I'm all for dubs, but only when they're good and as someone who's played and loved the Japanese Klonia remake I really can't get over how terrible the voices in the US version are, especially Klonoa's, I mean he sounds like friggin Sonic and the voice doesn't fit his appearance in the slightest.

    So guys, you think it's possible for someone to replace the English voices with the Japanese ones and all we'd have to do is download a patch and apply it to the ISO?

    Honestly, unless you know Japanese, the Phantomile language isn't that far off. I tend to prefer made-up languages in games anyway, since you can read the dialogue how you want.

    I don't really like gibberish languages in games at all, I don't know Japanese and am too lazy to learn it but I can understand a quite a bit considering i watch a ton of anime, plus i can tell JApanese from other foreign languages easily.
    But hey, unless someone makes an undub i guess the made up language will have to do, I was a complete and utter moron to delete my Japanese save before starting the US version.

    Would this be difficult to do? Could it possibly be as simple as replacing a few audio files in one version with those in another? I mean, that would be really cool. Failing that... you could “hack” the english text into the japanese version i suppose. That would likely be lot moar complex though...

    From what I can tell "Undubs" seem to be fairly easy to do, there's quite a few for the DS and the PS2 has some too.
    With the way the Wii is, I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard.

    I thought that Phantomile was what they used in the Japanese version. I guess not. Personally I'm playing it on Phantomile it sounds good.

    nah, they used actual Japanese voice acting and it was very good, i can't read japanese at all, but i can understand some spoken japanese it seems so i was able to get most of what was going on...cause you know i never played the PS1 game [​IMG] but seriously i've forgotten pretty much everything from the PS1 game so i could tell what was happening thanks to the voiuce acting at times.

    Well, if you understand quite a bit, perhaps it's time to learn kana? Klonoa is a very easy to read game and even with the kanji, there is furigana. https://www.google.com/#q=learn+hiragana+and+katakana+online
    And if it's too daunting, hope that oldclassicgamer can do the undub. ;)

    Sadly 4 years later and I can't do it. There is sound folder and I thought replacing it would work but no luck, when I did that, main menu sounds became weird as hell.
    I tried then reverse thing and to copy something that I thought could make english text in Japanese version but that failed too and I instead got bunch of @@@@@@@@@@@@ symbols in main menu instead of any text.
