I know this says something about my intelligence (or lack thereof), but I can’t seem to figure out how to change the language setting in my copy of J.B. Harold Murder Club from Japanese to English.
I’d greatly appreciate it if some kind soul could push me in the right direction.
Remember how I said (in this post) that I was going to buy copies of J.B. Harold Murder Club and Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego at some point? Well, I did–shortly after publishing that post, in fact–and both games arrived on my doorstep a few days ago.
My favorite part of this two-piece package: The embossed, leather(ish)-bound “Investigate Note” book that came with the copy of J.B. Harold Murder Club.
Here’s the front cover of said book:
And here’s the back:
As is usually the case with such things, I can’t understand a word of what’s written in this more-than-a-manual. That’s OK, though, because the game itself is completely understandable (thanks to its English language option).
I know this will sound funny to some of you, but J.B. Harold Murder Club is one of the titles–along with Monster Lair and Ys Book I & II–that prompted me to buy the TurboGrafx-CD attachment years ago.
The thing is, although I bought Monster Lair and Ys Book I & II alongside NEC’s pricey peripheral, I never bought J.B. Harold Murder Club.
Well, I’d like to rectify that error by picking up a copy soon. I don’t want to buy a copy of the North American version, though; I want to buy a copy of the Japanese version.
Why am I mentioning that here? Well, I can’t tell if the Japanese version of J.B. Harold Murder Club includes an English text option or not. If any of you would be able to give me a “yay” or “nay” in regards to that situation I’d greatly appreciate it.
