Rusty’s had some work done ⊟

I noticed that Rusty Slugger looked kinda off-putting in the new Rusty’s Real Deal Baseball screens, but I didn’t realize that he was off-putting in a different way from his Japanese counterpart Inuji until a reader pointed it out.

Yep, he’s been redressed and reskinned with some big USA Cartoon Eyes for the American release.

I’m pretty sure it’s a good change, despite the fact that I kind of just don’t like looking at him. If the Japanese character were released as-is over here, he would be perceived as an insulting caricature of Japanese people.

And “no but the game is actually Japanese so” or whatever is a bit too involved for a game Nintendo is hoping to use to promote free-to-play adoption on the 3DS.

And don’t think I don’t see you back there, suddenly blond boxart batter.

BUY Nintendo 2DS & 3DS/XL, upcoming games

I’ve been wondering about this myself and the only conclusion I’ve been able to reach is the same as good ol’ Tiny Cartridge’s.

HOLY CRAP TwitchPlaysPokemon is playing the Mother 3 translation now :O  http://www.twitch.tv/twitchplayspokemon
Man, I really hope the hacks we did for the translation hold up to the crazy non-stop input stream

mirror-knight said: A friend of mine is inspired by your Legends of Localization works that she wants to do a comparison of the Kid Icarus Uprising dialogues. She wanted to do videos with game footage but can’t risk/afford sending her 3DS, do you have any suggestions?

Aside from having a capture thing installed I can’t really think of any other options besides using a camera. Kid Icarus came with that 3DS stand, so it might be possible without looking too bad. Otherwise it might just be best to take screenshots from videos of people who’ve recorded the game, sorta like I do sometimes on my updates.

I got mine installed here: http://3dscapture.com/ It was easy and quick and I haven’t had any trouble at all so far. Once 3DS hacking becomes a thing and takes off I assume it’ll be easier to get screenshots without having to install capture boards.
