Yong Yong Titles! (Maybe)

  Heyo.  So I picked up a lot of three Game Boy games about a month ago containing a shoujo mini-game GBA title, Zelda: Four Swords for GBC (it's just a Chinese translation of Zelda DX,) and Sonic DX.  Four Swords didn't come with a manual, though Sonic DX did, and that's why I'm writing.

So, we have Sonic Advance 3 screenshots on the back, and Harvest Moon art on the back of the manual.  The game itself?  Just Sonic 3D Blast 5 again.  That game seems to be common in multicarts, as I have four or five with this game on them.  But what's interesting is what's INSIDE the manual!  (Click for bigger pics)

  Notice how there's multiple titles of the same series, being differentiated by numbers.  What's also worth noting is that most of them are labeled as RPGs.  As usual, translations are appreciated and will be credited.  Be sure to leave a comment or e-mail me if you can translate the manual.  I know I know, I should just learn the Chinese language if I'm going to be centering a hobby around it, but I have little free time, and an art career in France is more important than a Chinese video game hobby.

  1. I have a copy of "Gunstar Super Heroes 2" (or... bad title screen hack of Sgt Rock: On the Front Line. grr) for the GBC from the same company I think - it has that same logo from the back of your manual on the side of the box. I suspect they might just be some two-bit outfit rehashing old common games with misleading titles.. so I wouldnt get too excited if there turns out to be a ton of interesting names in that list, theyre probably all just Super Mario Land or something. Though I can recognise the last few games as being various versions of Pokemon, probably the official games translated into Chinese.
