    The most requested guide is here!!! @adilucky3


    but it is still untested because I'm on vacation I don't have my Wii U with me.
    So help me test this please

    1. go to content/res & cut these folders Fontjp & Msgjp somewhere for backup purposes
    2. go to content/res rename Fontus to Fontjp then Msgjp to Msgus

    try it and report it to me

    We know that, we aren't trying to boot the game but being able to play it in English on a JAP WiiU.
    This game is one of the nintendo games that are locked to the WiiU language no matter what version you have.

    Yep if only it was that easy the Japanese wiiu only has the option for Japanese you can't change the language in settings. Do you honestly think people are so fucking dumb to not have thought of doing that if they could.

    I found a Chinese patch to get the game running in Chinese, which may give some hints on what files need to be replaced

    Here's the patch:
    http://pan.baidu.com/s/1mikw4Da

    Files they replaced include:
    1. /content/res/Fontjp
    2. /content/res/Msgjp
    3. /content/res/Object/LogoUs.pack.gz
    4. /content/res/Object/Title.pack.gz

    (also they added DecompressedSizeList.txt and FileSizeList.txt under the folder /content/, I'm not sure if they are relevant)

    So...Maybe we need to find some way to edit the two .gz files?
