Translation Sack

The game sack guys have never been ones to shy away from obscure games and systems, featuring some pretty oddball stuff at times, but this episode has to be of particular interest for the gaming obscurist. Fan translations have long been an underground phenomenon, bringing some of the best Japanese releases to English speaking audiences when the original developers can't or wont. There's a few titles that have become cherished on the translation scene, Seiken Densetsu 3, Mother 3, Bahamut Lagoon to name but a few, but in this video a selection of less well known translations are featured. Rent A Hero is a particularly pleasing inclusion as it's an interesting game, if not a good one, plus the NES visual novel version of Akira and a selction of Saturn games. Take a look if you have the time.
