    My sister loves Kid Icarus: Uprising, but she only has a GBA, so I was thinking of getting her the Famicom mini version of the first game, which was only released in Japan. However, despite my googling, I can't find out whether it has English or Japanese text. I ask because I know that the Japanese version of the original Super Mario Bros. had English text in the Japanese version. Can anyone answer this question for me?

    If I'm right in thinking that this game IS a direct port of the Famicom version then yeah, there will be Japanese text (mostly at the end I guess).

    Yeah, it's not a big deal though, right? Text is mostly just menus and the pause button and stuff?

    Had a look at the game myself just now and while there are some smaller texts in English the rest appears to be in Japanese.

    this looks like a DS though , not the famicom , by famicom I assume you mean the wii mini. It is in Japanese though.

    Not really. He's asking if the GBA port of the NES Kid Icarus game is in Japanese or English because it was only released in Japan.

    Having skimmed through a gameplay video of the whole game there doesn't appear to be all that much text to speak of. Most of it should be guessable/obvious enough and only the last ending scene appears to have slightly more text.

    That sounds suspiciously like work.

    In all seriousness, idk why I didn't think of that though.

    This might be relevant to your interests.

    Just slap a NES cartridge in and you're done. You can even connect it to a TV and play with wireless controllers as well as the lightgun. It's the closest you can get to a portable NES without resorting to emulators, althought a PSP with custom firmware might be the more cost-effective option.

    I appreciate the suggestion, but I'm honestly not looking for a portable NES or anything like that. Just an official way to play a particular NES game on a GBA (which there is). Thanks, though.
