Gyakuten Saiban 4 demo translation is a heroic effort

DS Fanboy pal Zachary Hinchliffe is powerfully awesome, and you can quote us on that. He's working with Croik of the Phoenix Wright fansite Court Records to translate the Japanese Gyakuten Saiban 4 Flash demo, which actually consists of part of the first case.

It's in a very early stage right now-- essentially, once you get past the intro and into gameplay, the text switches over to question-mark speak that is even less useful than the original Japanese dialogue, but you can at least watch the introduction. And you can set your bookmark now to play more as more gets translated, because we're sure you'll get to play this demo to completion in English before the game gets an English release.

Wow, this is kinda cool, but this guy, whoever he is, must have a lot of time on his hands to focus this much on this. :/

It's a good thing you mentioned this, because Zach can be pretty lazy sometimes. You've just inspired him to finish it. Good for you, DS Fanboy!

Disclaimer: I edited it. If there's any spelling or grammar errors, it's probably my fault. I apologize in advance! I'm also a personal friend of his, so...yeah. I indirectly got onto DS Fanboy! Sweet!

Also: Brooks Williams: also a friend of Zach's.

I was a bit skeptical when Mr. Hinchliffe first posted his proposal on the Court Records Forums, but after witnessing tangable results, I can do nothing more than wholeheartedly agree with the sentiments expressed in the write-up. Once this translation is complete, I believe it'll be quite the tool for further increasing the Gyakuten Saiban fanbase. Go Zach!

Awesome. I would have done it several months ago, but I lost interest and... Well, gave up. A Heroic effort is an understatement to how awesome this guy is.
