Who wants to play Guess That Machine-Translated Game Title?

Beowulf

Son of The Answer Man
(He/Him)
I’m going to loop back and do a couple more rounds of GBA games, and then we’ll see the horrors from other systems. (A lot of games end up being repeated in every list, as far as I can tell.)

  • Walk on your feet
  • Battle of sonic
  • Yu hakuso
  • Batman Dragon – Revenge
  • Confused wolf:Titan
  • Tennis prince 3
  • Wind fire wheel racing
  • Lehman – the mob’s count
  • Lehman Crazy Rabbit
  • Max Penn
  • Cronoa of the wind
  • Soul of light
  • Real people, hit
  • Galaxy star
  • Live fast full version
  • Valeo continental software
  • Locke and frody
(I have to admit that "Real people, hit" is my favorite of all of these so far!)

Translations:
  • The Land Before Time Collection
  • Sonic Battle
  • YuYu Hakusho Tournament Tactics
  • Batman Vengeance
  • Crash of the Titans
  • The Prince of Tennis 2004 Stylish Silver

  • Rayman Hoodlum’s Revenge
  • Rayman Raving Rabbids
  • Max Payne
  • Klonoa: Empire of Dreams
  • Shining Soul
  • Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance
  • Lunar Legend
  • Mortal Kombat: Tournament Edition
  • WarioWare, Inc.

Okay, one more batch of GBA games to fill out that part of the collection:
  • Seed of death
  • Royal Knights
  • Dream Star: Collection Editi
  • Snow channeling King 1
  • Treason – Strategic Comm
  • Psychic King 2 – spiritual m
  • Power of light – Black Drag
  • Sonic vs. whew rocket
  • Digital Baby Fighting soul
  • Evolutionary special zone
  • to flash back
  • Nine areas
  • ultimate war
  • Da cania Inn
  • Gradient propulsion
  • Bean eating Elf

Then we hit a couple of games that I don’t recognize but have wonderful titles. “Fat monster experience pr” is a great name, but I have no idea what this is. The intro screen involves panicking fat ducks?

There are also two bug-catching games titled “Let’s raise a series together” and “My amoeba”, but I don’t recognize them and the title screens aren’t in English. (Do people want to guess? I could post pictures.)

I’m going on vacation for the next week, so there will be a gap before I have more ridiculous game titles to show you. We can do the Game Boy/Game Boy Color section when I get back.

(He/Him)
Yeah, I remembered the ducks from playing the game, years ago. Couldn't place it, until the title screen.

Eugene. - Oh is a Yu-Gi-Oh game.

(He/Him + RT/artee)
Looks like this Yu-Gi-Oh game in particular:


As for the Minna no [something] Series games, I'm having trouble finding any reference to them on the english speaking internet.
 

RT-55J

(He/Him + RT/artee)
Okay. The two bug catching games are named Minna no Shiiku Series 1 - Boku no Kabutomushi and Minna no Shiiku Series 2 - Boku no Kuwagata. That's as much as I can tell you about them from a cursory search.

Boku wa Koukuu Kanseikan appears to literally mean I Am An Air Traffic Controller, so the title there is accurate. It appears to be part of series whose localized title is usually Air Traffic Controller.

Thanks, RT-55J! I was never going to get those!

I just got back from vacation, so let's stick with portable games: The Game Boy section opens with some great titles!

I think, in retrospect as I filled this Game Boy segment in, I’m disappointed by the fact that 90% of them are GBC games. (Which shouldn’t be surprising given I’ve done a series of LPs from my Game Boy Youth.) I was hoping for more “Legend of Sarda Wake up” or “Frog Fighting” or something completely inexplicable like “choice of sword”. Hopefully the SNES section will be better on that front.
