I agree that it does look like something (enough to make me take a closer look, anyway!), but unfortunately it's nothing in Japanese either.

Found this in Tetrastar: The Fighter:



I haven't really played the game much, but this just looks unused to me.

It's itadakimasu in the mouth. Don't compare bon appetit to it...

If you've got a better equivalent to what I offered, by all means, go ahead. "Itadakimasu" is, like "Bon appetit", a phrase said at the start of a meal. Its meaning changes slightly when it's not associated with food, hence the "Here I come!"

It should be pretty obvious that the developers meant "bon appetit!" by the fact that it's inside his mouth.

Comparing the two Japanese PRG revisions of Super Mario Bros. 3, I came across this in PRG1:



This block of what I'm assuming is text is much smaller in PRG0:



[edit]
Apparently, this is the Mushroom House text. The dialog boxes were made much larger in the PRG1 version:

I don't know if you still need a translation, then, but...




These two are total nonsense.

I've seen "Itadakimasu" translated a bunch of ways in fandubs (terrible source I know). "Thanks for the food" or "Let's Eat" are the two most common that I see.

I never knew it could mean "Here I come", that's kinda cool.

...wait a minute...

It's the US PRG with Japanese CHR applied! This ROM is a fake!

I guess a good way to translate it literally for both contexts would be "I'm about to indulge!"

It seems to be the English text rendered using Japanese katakana in place of Latin letters. Kind of like a cryptogram.

So it's mostly the English-language ROM but the characters are Japanese.

Got it, thanks for the explanation. It's using hiragana characters, though, with the exception of what appears to be a katakana "ピ" (pi). Does the game normally have katakana?

It looks to me like the game is just treating the characters like it would the Latin alphabet- the English text was "PICK A BOX. / ITS CONTENTS / WILL HELP YOU / ON YOUR WAY.", and you can see that it follows that pattern. (the word "CONTENTS" is a good example)

What does that mean?
It means the US version of the game code is trying to use the Japanese version graphics.

Most NES games have entirely separate program and graphics ROMs, which are combined into one file for convenient storage. It just so happens that somebody combined the wrong code and graphics, and nobody's noticed until now. (Or at least, nobody's noticed and reported it to someone who can get it out of GoodNES.)

I'm going to do some nitpicky version difference comparisons for SF2 so I'd like to know what it says under the magic and item columns here.

まほう-MAHOU - "Magic"
おぼえていない-OBOETEINAI - "Not remembering" or "None memorized"

もちもの-MOCHIMONO - "Item"
もっていない-MOTTEINAI - "Not having" or "Having nothing"

Is that what you wanted?

In this context, I'd say..

まほう-MAHOU - "Magic"
おぼえていない-OBOETEINAI - "Haven't Learned"

もちもの-MOCHIMONO - "Items"
もっていない-MOTTEINAI - "Don't Have"
