I've heard most Zelda games have furigana, but I can't personally confirm which ones.


RE: Japanese Games with FURIGANA Support: RPG Edition - cappazushi - 04-06-2012 11:05 AM

I'll look into it. Thanks! Grinning

I own ゼルダの伝説 夢幻の砂時計 (Phantom Hourglass), and I can confirm that at the very least this Zelda does have furigana.
All you have to do is tap a kanji with your stylus and the kana will pop up.

EDIT: This may help: http://www.giantbomb.com/furigana/92-7369/games/ Looks like I need to pick up a few games.


RE: Japanese Games with FURIGANA Support: RPG Edition - cappazushi - 04-11-2012 02:23 PM

Thanks, I updated the list (with just Zelda, for now). When I have time, I'll confirm the games on their list by looking gameplay videos on YouTube and then add them too.

Did you see this article on Kotaku? For better or worse, it's a game for the list...


RE: Japanese Games with FURIGANA Support: RPG Edition - cappazushi - 04-19-2012 04:44 PM

Note to self: Never let future daughters play. Ever.

...But I will add it to the list. I've also done more research on the Giant Bomb list. There are actually a few they missed. Grinning

And here's a video about Zelda's unique version of furigana on the DS:

Don't the Layton games belong in the other thread?


RE: Japanese Games with FURIGANA Support: RPG Edition - cappazushi - 05-01-2012 02:44 PM

Yes, they did. Sorry about that. I've cleaned up both lists, although I still have a few games to add to this one. I've just been very busy since my daughter was born!


RE: Japanese Games with FURIGANA Support: Shoot, Punch, Stab Edition - 六百六十六 - 05-11-2012 11:33 AM

I can't confirm any myself, but there must be a lot of kids games and Mario games on the Wii that have furigana. Like Mario Party and stuff.


RE: Japanese Games with FURIGANA Support: RPG Edition - 六百六十六 - 05-18-2012 12:51 AM

It's cool man. And congratulations!


RE: Japanese Games with FURIGANA Support: RPG Edition - cappazushi - 05-18-2012 12:52 AM

Thanks!

So, anyway, the list is fully updated! Once again, I'm sorry to keep you waiting. Please let me know if you discover any new games!


RE: Japanese Games with FURIGANA Support: RPG Edition - rucury - 07-19-2012 10:33 AM

I would like to suggest both ゼルダの伝説 スカイウォードソード (Wii) and デジモンワールド リ:デジタイズ (PSP) be added! For Skyward Sword, it continues the Zelda trend of having furigana, and I also found this image to serve as evidence. As for Digimon, it releases today and there a bunch of screens here that show off the furigana. However, I don't think it has furigana over menu kanji, as seen here. Explanations for the menus and character dialogue seem to fully include furigana, however.

There is also Time Travelers from Level-5 (3DS, PS Vita and PSP), seen with full furigana support here, but I believe the game is a visual novel with a touch of quick-time-events, not really an RPG.

I'll be on the lookout for more!


RE: Japanese Games with FURIGANA Support: RPG Edition - cappazushi - 07-19-2012 11:14 AM

I'm glad you pointed that out, because when I originally researched games for this thread on YouTube, I couldn't find evidence that Skyward Sword had furigana support.

I'll add Time Travelers to the other thread.


RE: Japanese Games with FURIGANA Support - Omnislash - 12-13-2012 06:18 AM

Ougon no Taiyou: Shikkokunaru Yoake have furigana too, when pressing R or L.


RE: Japanese Games with FURIGANA Support - cappazushi - 12-13-2012 10:46 AM

Thank you for letting us know! The list has been updated. Creepy


RE: Japanese Games with FURIGANA Support - TheCreator - 01-05-2013 11:47 AM

Does anyone know if Miles Edgerworth 2 (AKA Perfect Prosecutor/Ace Attorney Investigations) has furigana? I REALLY want to play it but without furigana it would be suicide =(


RE: Japanese Games with FURIGANA Support - ccrawrlol - 01-05-2013 02:49 PM

No it doesn't have any :/ I know this for a fact because I am playing the first game. No furigana whatsoever. (Screenshot of the first game I found online)

But...I found a website that has walkthroughs for ALL Phoenix Wright games! & I have the entire script (literally word for word) of the first game. Script was hard to find but the walkthroughs weren't.

I was building an Anki deck for the game but got distracted @_@ now that I have some time, I can get back to it again Smiling


RE: Japanese Games with FURIGANA Support - TheCreator - 01-06-2013 01:56 AM

I really need to get an android or iphone, curse their expensiveness >-<


RE: Japanese Games with FURIGANA Support - TheCreator - 01-08-2013 04:54 AM

I, supposedly, am a JLPT level 4. Would you recomend playing the second game with the script so that i could look at the kanji pronunciations, or would you say it's a little too difficult for someone my level?


Please note that even though i love the game, i don't want to play it if i won't enjoy the whole experience. Looking for words is okay but, i think it might be a little too much for my current level.
