    Swapped the primary and alternative names. The original Japanese title should be used first with the translated title used as an alternate. The original name of the rom has been made the primary name. Kinda odd that the Japanese title makes more sense than the supposed translated title, but I didn't make the names I just swapped them lol.
  • Games
    Just another name swap. The Japanese name is "Lipple Island" and I figure it should be the primary name and the translated name "Ripple Island" should be the alternative. :)
  • Games
    The given name for this game was a translated name. The original name attached to the rom file and found elsewhere as the name for this game was not included except in the translation notes of which rom to use. I have made the rom name the primary name and the translated one the "alternative" name. I do believe that should be how it is. :)

Famicom Detective Club Part II

Super Nintendo

Game Description:

This is a remake of one of Nintendo’s most famous Famicom Disk System titles. Famicom Detective Club II tells the story of a nameless fellow (you), who is taken under the wing of Shunsuke Utsugi, a private detective, after he is found on the street escaping from the police. Your character is assigned a case by Utsugi - to locate the person that murdered a schoolgirl near a waterway.

And that’s all I can say without spoiling the game!

You play this just like those classic Sierra text adventures: you go around places and ask people questions, check evidence, and dig up clues from within the crime scenes. It may seem tiring at first, but as the game goes on, the story keeps getting better and better.

If you’re a fan of detective stories in general, you’ll love this game.

Translation Description:

The script for this investigation game looks just as polished as Radical Dreamers (another Demiforce offering), and just as intriguing. There are some text errors, one of them right at the start, but it doesn’t detract from the gameplay at all. That means there will be updates to the patch eventually.

Also of note is that ChrisRPG of RPGOne helped with the bootup intro (the black and white picture); the art itself was made by Emilio (of www.emiliolab.net).

You’ll need version 1.0 of the game for the patch to work properly. Version 1.1 makes funny things and the patch doesn’t like it.

Essentially a Perfect Translation

Reviewed By: mahjdve on 25 Nov 2009

Great game with no flaws, however the translation is slightly Americanized. There are some typographical and graphical issues as well. However, all of these flaws are minor (if even that). The game and translation are essentially perfect.
