    Yes, my goal was to complete it before eu-release. And I did (yesterday) [​IMG].

    I wonder why the boxart was changed for the eu-release. This one looks cheap compared to the american.

    Great!

    I hope the French translation will be better than in the US release ^^

    Great, another early release.

    I suppose that it's because of the different languages (and that the US release was just under 1024 and this one is just over).

    edit : double-owned ^^

    Yep, I trimmed the rom : 70 MB.

    The US save also works on the EU version [​IMG].

    Yeah, I see that now. So now I wonder why the american is the odd one. I can't see any nudity or religious symbols on the japanese, so it must be something else.. [​IMG]

    Probably the Kirby Effect. American boxart has to look more serious and ominous, rather than flighty and happy, or else it won't intrigue the casual crowd.

    Or maybe so it doesn't bring up the terrible memories of sailing in Wind Waker.

    Early release, isn't supposed to be out till the 19th. Nice I guess.

    Game is awesome in case you don't know yet, definately a must-buy.

    I'm hoping this will get to me before Friday, just gotta hope we don't get anymore god damn postal strikes.

    Lots of TV adverts for this game but they suck, all they show is Link spin attacking some ChuChus. Seems to have a lot of game store window ads. Nice to see Nintendo putting some effort into the marketing.

    There probably isn't much point in switching the US one on your flash cart for this, unless you need those other languages.

    I only want too switch with wi-fi games. The eur. version connects too the Eur. Nintend Wi-Fi servers. Which will result for me in less lagg and a shorter waiting time when connecting too the server.

    I hope the game is converted to metric system, so I know how far from the boat the fishes are when fishing. [​IMG]

    About languages, I thought the US release had already all the european languages ... I'm from France and my game (the US rom) is entirely in french !

    It only had two languages (beside English).
