I adored Retro Game Challenge, the localization of Game Center CX for the Nintendo DS. Sadly, not enough people were willing to take a risk on such a quirky title and odds for its sequel to see release in Western markets were squashed to nil long ago.
There may yet be hope for fans like myself who would love to experience a new round of retro-inspired games. Tiny Cartridge received curious videos over the last few days featuring footage from Game Center CX 2 which contained English text. While some hoped that this might be a sign of a publisher picking up the game, sadly, that is not the case.
In actuality, the videos are the work of Xvirus, who has also worked on translation patches for Shiren the Wanderer DS 2 and Torneko no Daibouken Advance. But neither of those patches are actually finished, as Xvirus cannot seem to keep a translator around long enough to get the job done. That’s often how these things wind up working out and I can’t say I am any more optimistic about the success of this venture as any other of its type. Which is to say, not at all.
Prove me wrong, internet! Make this happen!
