I played through both games in Japanese, but I'd probably play them again one day if there was an English translation Having played most of the picross e games, I didn't need to read the instructions/menu texts etc, but it would be nice to understand the descriptions etc.
I wouldn't mind seeing a translation for Picross 3D 2 that released in Japan a while back here. It's a ton of fun, but I'd like to have some english to the game for once. Perhaps I should dump the romfs and see about the text storage method used.
^ That's why I could never get far into LGPE; now *that's* "too different", with so many changed and removed mechanics and species and moves that it felt so fundamentally anti-progress, not fun at all.
