    Wow, a game that didn't take ten years to reach Korea.

    The Korean games suck for 2 reasons:

    1) They are almost always incompatible with other regions because of the special characters, and
    2) Like Tonitonichopchop said, the games take FOREVER to get dumped.

    I think this could be a nice little tool to learn Korean grammar, though. It's fun if you want to learn, and have some past experience.

    I think in B/W, the special characters are present in all versions. I might be horribly wrong on this (and if I am I apologise), but I think they're there, so these might just be the first Korean games to be compatible with the versions from other regions (if I'm right anyway).

    It's one of Nintendo's biggest titles, like Mario Galaxy, so Korea and China get first dibs on localisation right after the usual territories are done.
    Anything not triple-A first party will have a hard time getting a korean version.

    THEY ARE COMPATIBLE!!!!!!!!!

    I copied a Japanese save and used a Korean game and an official English card. I took a pic of the Korean touch screen in the Union Room.

    PICS OR IT DIDN'T HAPPEN!
    I have one attached.

    English name: TFail
    Japanese Name: ???? (on the Korean Game)
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Old news.
    I've had Korean Pokémon on an English save file for about a month now.

    At least this wasn't 20 years in the making. By the way where is the Korean Black release?

    Seek and ye shall find. There's no confirmed scene dump just yet, but chances are -somebody- has dumped the cartridge anyway.

    Is that nfo a joke?

    Anyway, this took quite a while, it seems, seeing how it came out in Korea on April 21. I almost had my hopes up that it would never see a 'release'. :\

    Ugh! Must resist urge to bitch about a certain game that hasn't been dumped yet. It's really tough......apparently the scene has gone completely lame.
