Help me compile a list of Japanese games.

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

I've been occasionally obsessed with the idea of figuring out the Japanese labeling system for some time, and I've been stuck for quite a while. I'm looking for game titles, the number on the spine label, and label color. If you want to post a picture (there aren't many out there!), that'd be awesome too but I'm less worried about images. I have a read-only list I'll update.

And here's a picture of my whopping one Japanese game. Thanks for any help!

I haven't, but I'm pretty sure I registered over there a while back. I'll check it out, thanks! I'll add the translations in the Notes column and stick another column in with links to where the info came from this weekend.

Dynasty... she couldnt find a clear picture but she thinks it says Rivers. Im not sure if that makes any sense so you may want to wait on that one.

 

BTW, Ive got your number has a green label.

So they're basically the North America version but with a plain Kanji sticker on the spine? Do the cartridge labels look different?

 

Not trying to minimize anyone's collectibles, as I'm sure these are very scarce, just describing what I see.

The carts are identical to American games. As far as anybody can tell, they're just American games with stickers on the spines and a stapled black & white Japanese manual.

   Hello,

 

   Necro-bump!

 

   I´ve been trying to extract japanese wording on those. I´ve been using OCR, Katakana tables, translations sites, dictionaries and such. Hellish work, I might add. 🙂

 

   But I´ve managed to do some advances in that. All japanese carts that I´ve managed to see a picture of the japanese label I´ve added below.

 

   So here´s how it looks so far:

 

2100-Nen no kettō (2100年の決闘) - "Duel in 2100" - Showdown in 2100 AD

Barēbōru (バレーボール) "Volleyball" - Volleyball

Beesuboeru (ベエスボエル) "Baseball" - Baseball

Chikyū bōei-tai (地球防衛隊) "Earth Defense Corps" - Invaders from Hyperspace

Eirian& inbēdā dai sakusen (エイリアン&インベーダー大作戦) "Alien & Invaders Operation" - Alien Invaders Plus

Goerudo Rasshu (ゴエルド ラッシュ) "Gold Rush" - Pick Axe Pete

Itazura Monkii Geemu (いたずらモンキーゲエム) "Naughty Monkey Game" - Monkeyshines

Konpyuetae Gorufu  (コンピュエタエ ゴルフ) "Computer Golf" - Computer Golf

Nazo no UFO (謎のUFO) "Mysterious UFO" - UFO

Purei Sansū Gēmu (プレイ 算数ゲエム) "Play Arithmetic Game" - I´ve Got Your Number

Ribāshī (リバーシー) "Reversi" - Dinasty

Supēsufaitā (スペースファイター) "Space Fighters" - Freedom Fighters

Robotto Gundan Gēmu (ロボット 軍団ゲエム) "Robot Army Game" - War of Nerves

Sakkā / Aisuhokkē (サッカー / アイスホッケー) "Soccer / Ice Hockey" - Hockey/Soccer

 

   I´d LOVE if someone have photos of the missing ones so I could finish this. 🙂

 

Armored Encounter/Sub Chase
Bowling/Basketball

Matchmaker/Logix/Buzzword

Thunderball

Electronic Table Soccer
Pachinko
Casino Slot Machine

 

   Thank you! ;-)

WOW! Nevermind. Just found out that the Japanese wikipedia have them all listed. 🙂

 

Japanese page: https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/オデッセイ_(ゲーム機)

 

Google Translate: https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=&sl=ja&tl=en&u=https%3A%2F%2Fja.wikipedia.org%2Fwiki%2Fオデッセイ_(ゲーム機)

 

So here it goes. Game number / USA name / Japanese writing (Romaji conversion) / Direct translation of the game name.
