Detective Conan: The Mechanical Temple Murder Case for Game Boy Color - IN ENGLISH!
19 February 2014 4:26AM EST - Update by Psyklax
After a lot of laborious work, the first Game Boy Color release of Detective Conan is available in English! This is my first full hack after a few aborted attempts at other games. The game itself is all about text rather than skill, so it took a long time - the hardest part was the translating, as my Japanese isn’t all that great and it takes me a while to get the translation right.
The GBC is an ideal system to do, because while it’s still relatively primitive, it also has huge carts, way bigger than strictly necessary. So nothing in this game was compressed, making my job a whole lot easier.
It’s not the most challenging game out there, but the story is entertaining, especially if you’re familiar with Detective Conan. The quality of dialogue will make or break this translation, so efforts were made to get it sounding as natural and interesting as possible.
Enjoy! And hopefully the second game will come eventually, too!
