    I think the Dragon Quest 4 game did but it's released in English now so it doesn't matter. Don't know of any other games that do.

    Phoenix Wright games 1-3 all have it, although there are already english versions out.

    If you press A+B+Left+Select+Y+Right+X in that order, on ANY japanese game, the full thing will magically be translated and fully playable in english. [​IMG]

    Some games have partial translations in them. If they exist, you can get a cheat code to use that translation but generally no, you have no english in the JPN games.

    metal slug 7 has english built in, but not the option.
    you have to build in the option yourself(check translation index) or use a cheat.

    the first one yes, that was replacing the japanese files with the english files.
    but you can patch a language/region menu into the game, and then you get a full translation.
