    If you do not know Japanese, there's not much point in watching videos on Niconico IMO.

    actually north korea. please send help
    Unless you're like me and only use niconico for cat videos and music.


    It might not be possible if the menu text and stuff is held server-side, and I'd imagine it is.

    I'm pretty sure localizations on niconico are served per request.
    It's a silly translation request.. Honestly, if you're that interested in using niconico, just click everything so you can learn what it does. Grab a katakana chart so you can read things like メニュー or use an app on your phone to translate it. Single-word translations aren't that bad in Japanese, it's the sentences that kill everything.

    Unless the said words are using kanji, if you don't know how to look up kanji with SKIP or radical search that can be painful.

    Google Translate does fine with most single kanji and many of the 常用漢字。

    It could be done with a userscript or browser addon.

    On low-resolution screens like the 3DS screens Google Translate works pretty bad as soon as the kanji has a too large number of strokes. When I started learning Japanese I had trouble with many games so I used Google Translate but I quickly abandoned this idea as about 75% of the time what it said made absolutely no sense, and I'm not talking about the semi-nonsense GT usually gives.

    Ah, that's true. You're better off pasting the sentence on Jisho and clicking every word to see what it means, and guessing it from there.
    Or the better option, just learn Japanese.

    No it couldn't, because the OP is asking about the 3DS App, not the desktop browser version
