    I have an English DS and an R4, and for most Japanese games it plays them in Japanese. However, the game "Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2008 (Japan)" plays in English despite being a Japanese game. I guess there is something in the game that makes it recognize that I do not have a Japanese DS and does not play it in Japanese. Is there a way to change this???

    Thanks

    It auomatically reads the language settings of your ds. Change the settings of your ds to japanese. Other than that I don't know any other ways.

    Remove the flashcart and boot up.
    Check out the language settings on the Option settings of your DS (touch screen bottom icon).

    Maybe (s)he is learning. Games, especially Phantom Hourglass (with furigana) and ones that have the english translation if you figure out the japanese, are a great medium to help learn a foreign language.

    Because there may be games that will take at least 6 months to localize, and people don't have the patience to wait that long.

    As for me, I've been playing JP games because they may never see a Localization (cough* Higurashi cough*)
