After letting my Switch chill all by its lonesome for far too long (I love the thing, but PS4 games always had a way of drawin me away), I’ve recently begun downloading all sorts of shiz that interests me to see what sticks, because one thing I love about the Switch is it’s all about dem games.
One that immediately caught my eye was Mighty Gunvolt Burst, the whacky crossover between Inticreates’ Armed Blue Gunvolt series and Inafune’s baby Mighty No 9. The Gunvolt games are solid as hell, reminiscent of the Rockman Zero games that Inticreates previously did for Capcom. Mighty No. 9 was the promised return to Rockman roots that local madman and self-titled father of the universe Inafune promised to fans worldwide, and, well, pretty much everyone knows how that turned out. Mighty No. 9 wasn’t horrible by any stretch, but it was definitely a big letdown, especially in the visuals and charm department. Wily ol’ Inafune, up to his tricks again!
But for Mighty Gunvolt Burst, the most tl;dr review I could give it is: this is the game Mighty No. 9 should have been, and with a tighter budget to boot.
Hello peeps, here is the Rockman World 5 JPN script + translation as per request. I dunno if there’s really much difference between this and the localization, but if you were ever curious about dat J script, here ya go.
Also it was fun to do a leisurely translation.

Ryu ga Gotoku / Yakuza 6 is a dope game, there is no doubts about it. I don’t know if it’s even possible for this series not to bring the hype. What’s more, is that every game in the series continues to improve on the formula making each new game even better than the last, which is quite impressive and makes me dunk my soul to the devs every time a new one is announced. Zero turned out to be insane, so naturally, I was ready to party and get a taste of life as a god once the 6th game was announced and hearing that it was made purely for the PS4. Full power Kiryu preaching that violence isn’t the answer while also stomping everyone’s faces in?! Count me in!
Unfortunately, part 6 breaks the pattern – it is not better than Zero.
First of my Yakuza 6 lyrics! Another game that is coming to the West; cool!
Find it here. Have karaoke ver., will upload Full Spec. ver or whatever when it gets uploaded.
Despite the cheery nature of the video and song, it’s kinda depressing.
Hello, quick update: I am working on the X2 manga and am now onto editing + putting text in boxes for Vol.1. Took longer than I hoped, but not out of difficulty but due to work being pretty busy and priorities going elsewhere. However, it is going steady.
I am going to Japan on July 4 for about 2 1/2 weeks.
Yakuza 6 was announced for here, cool. I wanna do the lyrics still, and am looking for full versions of the songs to accompany lyrics. Not good pickin’s, so I might just put the lyrics up anyway and find the vids/songs later.
Added it to the Rockman 8 page at the bottom. Dialogue-wise it’s nothing that special, but they were fun cameos at least.
With Yakuza 5, Zero, and who knows – possibly 6? – getting localized, I felt like returning to the one “Yakuza” game I plat’d: Ryuu ga Gotoku: Ishin!. Because while the previously listed Yakuzas found a miracle, it is unlikely for now that Ishin! will be localized, just like how Kenzan! wasn’t. So here is the quick jist about this game.
