    Any news about US/Europe release of DS Air (Jet Impulse)?

    I'm playing Top Gun game but this looks much better.

    I've read somewhere it should be released in 2008 but no other details [​IMG]

    Man, this game has been waiting in the wings (yeah, I got that pun in there without a sweat) for a long, long time. Didn't a Japanese version come out a while back? I think I even tinkered with it a bit, and if it's the same game I'm thinking of, it had a great production -- lots of voice work and such. I'd like to tinker with the game some more, but I think it used the face buttons for controls, which I thought was a bit disappointing, after having so much fun with SFC.

    as the original poster mentioned, the japanese version is called "jet impulse"
    unfortunately the releasedate has been "TBA" for quite some time now i think.

    but the japanese version is perfectly playable.(all you need to know is english or icons, the rest is background info)

    When Nintendo dated Rhythm Tengoku, Kirby, Fire Emblem & Wario Land Shake, they also had DS Air in the same listing for a TBA 2008 which indicates that it is still coming out. This was around May I think.

    I reckon we'll see it early 2009 seeing that I don't think Nintendo has anything else to release.

    it's not completely standard txt files, normal spaces do nothing.
    i tried to get something started a while ago, but it's too much to do alone(with only 5 translation websites) and i couldn't get anyone to help me.

    The (J) version came out mid-February 2007.

    Yeah, release the casual crap noob games toot-sweet, but this game STILL hasn't got a USA release a year-and-a-half later. How freakin' LAME! I'd really like to hear Ninty's BS excuse as to WHY this never got released yet.

    They do that a lot. Realease a game wayyyyyyyy later on the same console even though it's a different language.

    Yeah, I'd love to see an English language release for this!

    Really fun, arcadey feel to it, nice control scheme.
    Story Mode was good fun (except for a few missions where my lack of Japanese held me back a bit)
    Big choice of aircraft and weaponry.
    Online dogfights!
    New downloadable planes!

    I'm really suprised it hasn't had a release yet. I'm sure it'd be a profitable title.

    However, as a previous poster has said, the Japanese version is pretty playable for a non-Japanese speaker.

    Yah it's angering this one just keeps sliding around the cocktease scale of tba as it's getting really old.

    I've played a bit with jet impulse and with the story shot to kanji hell and other little bits lacking you'd have to experiment to figure out I just don't want to bother with it. What I have played though was showing me it to be a very fantastic game.

    Guys, you have to understand that nintendo knows that this game wont sell *that* good, and other games are better to translate now.
