Why is it all in Japanese text at least make an option that allows you to make the text boxes translate the words in English. I have never played the game before

The game was manufactured solely for a Japanese audience, there really wasn't any reason for them to put any English at all since they probably didn't realize a decent amount of English-speaking people would import the game.

I don't think it would be hard/costly to add English translations but I just can't believe there is much of a market for this game in the west. I would buy it but how many others? Dozens? Hundreds? I think the MLB version in 2007/08 only sold like 30k copies.

It would be incredibly tedious for them to add, also there's really no point. The western audience is very small, unfortunately...

I feel as if this forum is really the last bastion of Western Pawapuro support

Right, at this point it's a decade old game on a system that is 2 generations removed from current gen. It's like being really into Ken Griffey's SNES game when the rest of the world is playing MVP 2005. I do still love it though... it plays a good game of baseball.

It's a crazy solid game. It's a shame it got shafted by 2K
