Nice one! I love it when these offbeat, early-ish games get translated. I'll have to go back and watch the Chrontendo segment about it.

That reminds me about the half-finished (more like 20% finished) Family Tennis translation I have kicking around...

Yep. That titlescreen's a pretty huge letdown compared to the original.

Game's fun though. It's built into my famiclone, IIRC.

Nice to see some old games other than RPGs translated. The translation looks nice but the new English title screen looks disappointing when compared to the Japanese one but at least you translated it. I'm also not sure why you have romhacking.net credited but not the actual devs on the title screen.

I put the site down as that is where the patch originated from. It still says Namco in the big red letters on the screen so they still get the credit.
