A quick and unexpected new "Super Puzzle Fighter 2X" English translation patch for the SEGA Dreamcast!



Quote
Presenting a *complete* version of "Super Puzzle Fighter 2X", building upon the original status/information message translation by comradesnarky from ReviveDC.
This patch combines comradesnarky's work with a brand-new hack by me that leverages the game's secret built-in language selector to bring players a 100% complete English-language experience out of the box (sans text/graphics related to network play).
A special thanks to Spike for pointing out the existence of the secret language-selection menu, which provided a foundation for modifying the game to default to English, rather than Japanese.

The game didn't sell well because the gameplay felt ... outdated and samey.
I don't really like to compare it to Yakuza but I did still enjoy playing Yakuza series more than Shenmue 3.
Shenmue 1 & 2 was really phenomenal when they're released but Shenmue 3 was really way too late.
I can imagine Yakuza ans Shenmue taking place in the same universe and can imagine Ryo adopting the Yakuza gameplay.

While we are at it, we can add Akira too.



But if Project X Zone 2 and SEGA Heroes deemed to be canon, they're sadly not living in the same universe.

I hope Shenmue III will get a Sega deluxe addition someday... or at least Sega mods.

Knowing SEGA, I don't think they'll touch Shenmue III or IV, though they'll still keep the franchise alive by making the characters as guest stars. Last time in SEGA Heroes and who knows later Ryo probably will show up as Super Monkey Ball Banana Rumble DLC Character, following Axel.

They still have the rights, it's just SEGA rarely do anything with franchises where the creator is still too attached to them (Toejam and Earl, Ecco the Dolphin, Wonder Boy, Shenmue).

Ecco and Kolibri were created by Ed Annunziata.
Did you know that Ed recently has just released Kolibri Coloring Book?

‘No Xbox’ Trends as Fans Hit Out at Marvel vs. Capcom Collection Skipping Microsoft’s Consoles



Quote
Without an explanation from Capcom, fans are left to speculate about the reason for Marvel vs. Capcom Fighting Collection skipping Xbox. Some believe it’s the result of Capcom’s MT Framework engine being depreciated on the Xbox One.
As many have pointed out, this would explain why other Capcom collections, such as Megaman Battle Network Legacy Collection and Monster Hunter Stories, also skipped Xbox One. There is a feeling from some that Capcom has decided it’s not worth the time, energy, and resources that would be required to bring its MT Framework collections to Xbox One, but ...
