When A Game About English Words Is Released In Japanese

Scribblenauts is a title that is synonymous with the English language. Or, at least, the Roman alphabet. So how does the game look when it gets translated into Japanese?

It's fascinating seeing the game running like this. To make things easier, while the Japanese version retains a keyboard to enter words with, it also has a "note pad" input, on which players can just write characters in either hiragana, katakana or Roman letters (which the Japanese call "romaji"...the game doesn't make use of kanji).

    I wonder what the kanji for "pneumatically powered harpoon" is?

      "the game doesn’t make use of kanji"

        He was making a joke Mr. "You said something incorrect".

    that's original scribblenauts, not super scribblenauts.
