    That's right! *gasp* I'm requesting for a translation! *more gasps* But I plan on asking for it the right way. So here it is:

    Game name
    The game is called Nanashi no Game (??? ? ???)

    Release date
    The game was released in Japan on July 3rd, 2008.

    Game info
    Nanashi no Game, or "Nameless Game", is a horror point-and-click adventure video game developed and published by Square Enix for the Nintendo DS. It's a game about a game; a cursed RPG that kills anyone who plays it 7 days after. It's a really awesome game. It's kind of like two games in one; you play part of the game in a 3d horror-like environment, kind of like Dementium. Sometimes, you reach certain points which you cannot pass in real life, which is where the game switches into "the cursed game", which allows you to play in the RPG 8-bit style game. Here's what IGN has to say about the game:

    "In this horror adventure game, you play as a character whose friend disappears from school one day. Exploring the friend's home, you discover that he'd just received a new videogame. While resembling a classic 2D RPG, this game is actually said to be cursed. It's believed that those who play this game die within a week.

    The game -- the DS title, not the cursed one -- takes place from the first person. You play by holding the system rotated 90 degrees, like a book, with the world expanding out before you in 3D on both screens. All your actions are controlled with the stylus -- everything from moving forward and looking up, to opening a door.

    Outside of being a rare first person 3D game for the DS, the title also makes use of a technology that makes two speakers produce 3D sound. You'll apparently be able to hear sounds coming from behind you. Square Enix recommends that players play the title with headphones."

    I figured videos would be better than screenshots.

    My offering
    Although I don't know any Japanese, I'd be willing to help in any way possible. I love horror games, and this one seems just way too good to pass up. I'd be willing to help out whoever takes up this project in whatever way they see fit.

    This actually seems quite nice! Hopefully the compression is easy, as it seems like this is probably a text-heavy game. Though I don't know Japanese, I'll see if I can gut text out of it for ya.

    I just took a look in the game, it must have a wierd compression??
    I couldn't find any script or graphics at all and it doesn't seam to be lz either?
    There are not much files, so I think the files in the folder "g3d_data" are graphics for 3D maybe 2D too.
    The "tra" and the "ncs" folders are the only ones that could have script in it.
    I'll take a closer look tomorrow.

    The .tra files have the text. Every .tra file has it's own font, none of them being a standard character set.
    Also, pointers are embedded into script code.

    Yes, I think that there's text at the end of every .tra file. And it seems all letters are sideways. That's funny. Anyway, whoever wants to try to hack this game is gonna have a looooot of fun making tables [​IMG]

    Do you have GOOD ENOUGH evidence to prove your statement T_T?! If they're gonna translate it then I'll wait, usually games with voice dialogue take long to be translated because they not only have to translate the game, but also find and pay for a voice cast, but if you REALLY can prove this game is going to be localized, then you guys shouldn't waste your time, because it DOES seem hard to translate ^^u!

    I think Guile589 was referring to this article: http://www.cubed3.com/news/10614

    This game does look interesting. I especially like the 8-bit part of the game.

    You do realize that "thinking about it" doesn't mean they're gonna bring it here? Or that there's no proof to support it other than the link to cubed3?

    .tra seems to be the text for sure. However, is there even a way to open it with no problems? D=

    Tables would kill aynone. I already am bad at them :[

    Maybe we can make a NanashiTrans program? Kind of like the ones that Darth makes, like YsTrans, SomaTrans, etc.
