[GBA] Sansara Naga 1x2 - not listed in DoM?

Post by Vaskr » 30 Sep 2018 18:38

Hello, why is the game Sansara Naga 1x2 not listed in the DoM?
As far as I know, it's an officially released game for GBA, you can even find used copies of it on yahoo jp auctions.

It is, but its named Samsara Naga 1x2. I'm not sure if this is correct or not.

It's a matter of definition. It's not a real Japanese word but Katakana which is used to represent the pronunciation of a foreign word. In this case it appears to refer to the Indian words Samsara and Naga. There is no real way to spell an "m" in Japanese. The Katakana ン is something inbetween and it's context sensitive. Usually n, but also m in some cases. Depends on how you transcribe the symbols to Latin characters (Romaji). Afair we usually use the original foreign word in the game title.

Oh yes, now I can see it in my list. It was pretty silly of me to search for the first three letters "san" instead of searching for "naga".
