I'm starting to realise how good or how popular some of the Japanese games are on the DS.. I want to know if there are any DS roms that are (J) and have an English selection.. I don't think there would be any but I just thought I would ask.. Because Im getting sick of the crappy ds game releases.. I want a good game, so I thought I would turn to the (J) roms.. But only if they have an English selection.. Thanks

I think the Jap versions of the Phoenix Wright games had English as a language option. Don't know about any other games.

Sonic Rush Adventure and Yu-Gi-Oh World Championship 2007/2008 don't have a language select menu, but they'll use your system's setting.

The first Puyo Pop Fever might have an English option. Seeing as its own GBA version and the old GBA Puyo Pop did.

Note: Unlike every other game I mentioned above, Puyo Pop Fever (GBA) wasn't released in USA. Just JP and EU.

Not that I heard of. But there are hacks out there. The most well-known example is Jump Ultimate Superstars.

Does this forum have english translation? Clearly people need it as they are unable to read.

He obviously wants a game released in Japan which isn't released here which has an english translation.
He doesn't give a crap if there is already a US or EU version of the japanese game as he wouldn't then need a translation.

I'd say tough luck.

One of the only reasons Japanese version of games would have an English option is because the game was planned to be localized from the start.

A good example is Final Fantasy 1/2 Anniversary edition on the PSP. They had built-in English in the Japanese version and it arrived in the US in a month or so.

On the other hand, FFT or Crysis Core took half an year ish.

Exit DS is in English except for the little monologues before some missions. The tutorial is in Japanese, but it's got easy controls so you can check a walkthrough for like a minute. Every other menu is in English.

That Dragon Quest one for DS had that translation built into it, all you had to do was replace the Japanese script with the English script already in the rom.

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
