Retro Game Super Translation Selection II


By Hanenashi Error

A sequel to the first Retro Game Super Translation Selection book originally published in 2017, this volume analyzes even more lines of dialogue from classic video games, compares how they were localized, and includes some explanation for the business or cultural reasons surrounding such changes. Originally authored by a professional video game translator, this is a localized version of a doujinshi released at the Game Legend retro game event in late 2019, and features a unique perspective rarely seen in the English speaking world! The new volume focuses on games for the PlayStation, Saturn, Nintendo 64, and Game Boy Color.

Covered games include:

Dragon Warrior / Dragon Quest, Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask, Mischief Makers, Arc the Lad, Mega Man Legends, Final Fantasy Tactics, Magic Knight Rayearth, Alundra, and many more!
