A single line in Ikari no Yousai 2 (GameBoy)
« on: May 17, 2011, 04:55:15 pm »
Sad this little gem didn't reach the USA when the whole game was already in English. The first and third parts were at least released in English as Fortified Zone (GB) and Operation Logic Bomb (SNES).

Anyway, could someone translate this single line in the credits (the only Japanese text the game has):

And if I may ask what the title screen translates to?

怒りの要塞 = Fortress of Fury/Fury Fortress/Fury's Fortress/Furious Fortress/etc. The permutations increase if you translate "ikari" as "wrath" or something.

I've never quite been able to decide which translation of 怒りの業火 I like best. >_>

I particularly love to translate 怒り(いかり) as “wrath”, because they are both really cool-sounding words :beer:

Which is why I’m kind of disappointed that SNK already has one of these trademarked, and not the other :(
we are in a horrible and deadly danger
