Title: [Translation] Mitsume ga Tooru NES Translation [DONE]
Post by: Pennywise on January 15, 2019, 04:23:12 pm
So on a whim I decided to look into translating this game the other day and it's surprisingly easy to work on and the script is minuscule. I know it's technically translated, but that's never stopped me before. My main reason for wanting to translate it is that I thought of a great title for it. "The Evil Eye" If I were to get a license to translate, release the manga etc, that's the title I'd brand it as. Anyhow, the script if anyone wants to do a quick translation.

But it(the series) already has an English title: The Three-eyed One.

Ok, I see a company did a kickstarter for the manga. I do like their English logo for it.

I believe the English title is quite old. I've seen some references to the manga or anime mentioning it years ago.

I had a look at Toma's old translation for the game and he calls the main character Mitsume, which is clearly wrong. I don't know any Japanese, but that's definitely not the name of the main character. It's not a text-heavy game, but that usually isn't a good sign.

The main character in the series is Hosuke Sharaku so that old translation is indeed wrong.

That's also the name used in the game, so it seems like it was intentionally changed to Mitsume.
