Hello again! It’s day 5 of Obligatory Ice Level Day! We’re counting down to the Mario marathon on December 14th, when we’ll be raising money for the Make A Wish Foundation! Tune in for some awesome games and sweet prizes, like handmade wooden item blocks and a Wii U Deluxe! So, who here considers themselves a game master? What about a retro game master? Do you think you can really beat the chief of old video games? Yes, today’s ice level is Rally King’s Snow Mountain, from Game Center CX/Retro Game Challenge!
*Update* Tiny Cartridge has now confirmed that it’s happening and they are in need of translators who can read Kansai. So if that is you get in contact with X-Virus to help my dreams of playing this game in English come true.
So Tiny Cartridge has been posting a few videos that can be found on the Youtube use account Arino 2011 that show Retro Game Challenge 2 running with english text’s and images. Promptly after seeing these my excitement peaked and I became interested. I sent a tweet to the publisher of the first game in the US X-SEED to ask if they might have had a change of heart and decided to do the sequel. Unfortunately their response was “These are not the droids you are looking for.”
It definitely gets the point across. Another big point toward this being a fan translation is that in the second video the copyright is for when the game was released in Japan and not for this year. I would be thrilled to be able to play the sequel to what was both a fantastic collection of fake retro games and the game based on my favorite Japanese television show Game Center CX. Check out the video after the jump.
