    I would like to see a list with all Japanese games that feature a english language option.

    I know the first 3 Gyakuten Saiban (Phoenix Wright) games do. And some RPG's like Chrono trigger.

    So can anyone name a few? [​IMG]

    Most only get it because they are ports.... English in new J games are few ....

    Edit: Oh you wanted a list
    Then:
    -Yugioh WC series
    -Gyakuten Saiban
    -Chrono Trigger

    These are the ones I've played with the option.

    I'm pretty sure that most, if not all, Japanese DS games that have an English option have been released in NA/EU.

    Your friend is a horrible liar. Just think it through logically -- translation takes time, effort, and money. What sane publisher would delay the JP release of a game for a translation that almost nobody in that market will care about? Who would bother spending money producing that translation when they probably haven't even decided to release it internationally yet?

    Etc, etc.

    Is the Gyakuten Saiban english mode, the same as the Ace Attorney translation?
    I know they're the same series, and probably is the same translation, but if it isn't I might play them again XD

    They are the same translation but the devs could have used a spell checker (nothing critical but noticeable given they are text driven games).

    In my opinion they were worth it before they saw a stateside release but not so much these days.
