A few Japanese games feature speech samples, but - understandable for the technology at the time - they sound quite crude and I wonder if anything is actually said.

  • Eggerland 2, at the title and game start (second one does sound a bit like "Don't stop!" though)
  • Youma Kourin, before a stage boss loads (may just be some kind of growl)
  • Ninjya Kage at game start and at the end of each loop (pretty sure something is said)

I've collected and uploaded these examples, in this order, here:

In Eggerland 2 you hear "Meikyushinwa!" (the Japanese title of the game, meaning something like Labyrinth Myth, or Labyrinth Saga) at the title.

Cool, thanks. Smile It's actually easily discernable if you know it.

In Aleste 2 the protagonist (what's her name again), calls out (the name of) the weapon you select (I figure) + there's some other speech right? Has this been translated and shared / written down somewhere yet?

Official Topic? (capitals)

@ren: she says her name (Ellinor Waizen) and something else at game start.

Regarding other japanese speech samples, the ones from Madou Monogatari 1 2 3 are really fantastic Wink

Lots of speech samples in Akanbe Dragon, though they're so compressed that they're nearly incomprehensible.

The clearest speech samples I can think of are in the Pac Man clone "Oh Shit!" (also called "Oh No!" after censoring, and released in Japan as just "Shit"). Wink

Oh yeah, there's also a Donkey Kong clone called "The Apeman Strikes Again" that says "He is coming for you!" via speech sampling before each stage. For... some reason. Wink

In Hudson Soft's Fire Rescue, there's a guy on the roof of a burning building shouting two lines in Japanese. One of them is clearly "Tasukete!" (Help me!), but I've no idea what the other one is supposed to be.

Whoops! Somehow failed to notice this was only for Japanese games.

Akanbe Dragon counts, though!
