Finally, the ULTIMATE VERSION!
damn that box art looks nice then the NSTC version.
woot the best version is finally out
Any difference between this and the NTSC-U version?
I think this one has the japanese soundtracks, whereas the NTSC-U version doesnt.
TIME TO RESTART THIS GAME
After reading your post I did a search and according to siliconera the PAL version includes both US and JAPANESE soundtracks. Apparently, you can change which one you're using whenever you like. This may warrant a download...though I do hope this game is viewable in color on my crt ntsc tv, as the PAL version of Pikmin 2 was not.
Woo! Finally! Time to download this
I've perfected 49 rhythm games except REMIX 10~~~~~~~~~~~
The translation is changed in almost every place. Many times it's changed for the worse. It seems to me that the PAL translators took the text and treated it like it was for a serious video game - and serious video games don't have mini-games in which you "do that thing we do". Instead, you "set sail". Personally, "that thing we do" is much funnier.
The two non-text-related changes are the addition of these features:
Japanese / English voice option at the title screen
Shuffle music feature in the Cafe
Both are not worth messing up the US version's hilarious translation. The PAL version is roughly equivilant to the US version in most places, but the US text is usually a little better. The deal breaker is when the text is changed to be much worse.
The PAL version did make Air Rally a game between (basically) a cat and his pet dog, instead of the two friends cat and dog. You could say it's a new joke but I liked the old setup more.
Do other PAL games work? If you have only tried pikmin 2, then maybe your TV can't handle a PAL signal. Try to force video and maybe even pikmin 2 will work for you.
I can play the PAL version of Pikmin 2 on my old crt tv but it only runs in black and white, the only other PAL game I've tried is Another Code: R and it plays fine in full color on the same tv. I've also read that to get Pikmin 2 to display in color that you need to have component cables and a tv that accepts them as an input, however I have tried playing it on a 26" LCD tv my girlfriends parents own with only the standard composite cables and oddly enough, Pikmin 2 actually displays in color on it.
In other words get a new TV.
