Nintendo has made many unusual or unexpected game design choices over the years, but few Nintendo games can compare in sheer strangeness to Captain Rainbow, a Japan-exclusive Wii title that stars a yo-yo wielding superhero and features a variety of obscure Nintendo characters, including the likes of Birdo and Takamaru. It’s unsurprising that it never made it out of Japan, but now, seven years after the game’s release, a dedicated team of fans has fully translated the game’s script.

After three years of work, Kirameki Translations has finally produced a full translation of Captain Rainbow. Unfortunately, they don’t have the technical knowledge to actually patch the translation into the game, so they’re looking for someone with the skills to do so. If you’re interested in helping with the patch, you can contact Kirameki Translations on their Google + page.

Captain Rainbow is one of the most truly bizarre Nintendo games out there, and it looks like it won’t be long before it is playable in English. Are you looking forward to that day? Let us know in the comments below.

Our Verdict

Gabriel McBride
I'm a guy who likes video games, which you probably gathered given that this is my user profile on a video game news site. I started gaming with Pokemon Gold on the Game Boy Color, then moved on to Ruby on the GBA, which eventually led me to the Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap. It was there that I fell in love with the Zelda series, and to this day Minish Cap holds a special place in my heart. As I became increasingly obsessed with the Zelda series, I eventually discovered Zelda Informer and have stuck around ever since, though I have spent more time commenting on Gamnesia ever since it emerged from ZI's forehead fully formed. I love all things Nintendo, and some of my favorite (non-Zelda) games include Chrono Trigger, Okami, the Mother trilogy, the Paper Mario series (but especially Thousand Year Door), Xenoblade Chronicles, and various Fire Emblem titles. Outside of video gaming, I'm also fond of reading, watching anime, and occasionally playing board games.
