    Default Mankin Game

    It was through the game legacy of spirits i get to noe mankin ( I was a master at collecting GBA roms).. later on, a local station aired the mankin series... i was not an anime fan, but since i knew a little about the series, i decided to giv it a shot.. then i fell in love with mankin, and now, i am seriously obsessed with it..
    WELL, thats really not the point.. I have all the GBA roms for mankin games, but I am still not satisfied.. Currently, I am downloading the power of spirits, but I still want to have funbari spirits and spirits of shamans.. sadly, those games doesnt have any english version... So, anyone know the potential of FS and SOS being released in the USA???
    I now... this thread maybe sux.. coz u ppl may be more of anime fan than a gamer.. but if any1 is interested to have mankin GBA games can dowload it from Grn<DOT>dl<DOT>am, but u need an emulator to play it.. so u can dl the emulator from emulatorzone.. choose to download VBA.. its the best GBA emulator
    GBA=Game boy advance
    VBA= Visual boy advance
    FS and POS are PS2, SOS PS1, soul of spirits gamecube, the rest GBA
    I must get FS and POS!!!

    Here is the list of every Shaman King game. I have had roms of, or owned every one of these games (so, thus I have played all of them, haven't beaten them all yet). Listed in order of release, with dates where known.
    Shaman King: Tcho Senji Ryakketu Funbari Hen [Red version] (Gameboy Color, Japanese, Dec. 2001)
    Shaman King: Tcho Senji Ryakketu Meramera [Blue version] (Gameboy Color, Japanese, Dec. 2001)
    Shaman King: Spirit of Shamans (PS1, Japanese, June 2002)
    Shaman King: Chou Senjiryokketsu 2 (GBA, Japanese, July 2002)
    Shaman King: Will of the Future (Wonderswan, Japanese, Sept. 2002)
    Shaman King: Chou Senjiryokketsu 3 (GBA, Japanese, Dec. 2002)
    Shaman King: Soul Fight (Gamecube, Japanese, April 2003)
    Shaman King: Funbari Spirits (PS2, Japanese, April 2004)
    Shaman King: Master of Spirits (GBA, English, Nov. 2004)
    Shaman King: Power of Spirit (PS2, English, Nov. 2004)
    Shaman King: Legacy of the Spirits, Soaring Hawk (GBA, English, Feb. 2005)
    Shaman King: Legacy of the Spirits, Sprinting Wolf (GBA, English, Feb. 2005)
    Shaman King: Master of Spirits 2 (GBA, English, Aug. 2005)
    Jump Super Stars (DS, Japanese, Aug. 2005)
    Jump Ultimate Stars (DS, Japanese, Nov. 2006)

    In opinion the best 2 games are Chou Senjiryokketsu 3 and Funbari Spirits. Solid gameplay, (ouside of the Jump games), two the the better selling games (Soul Fight I believe was the best selling, or second best after Funbari Spirits). In terms of English games, Master of Spirits 2 was probably the best, but I rank that below those other two.

    The only game out of that list which doesn't have a rom out there on the internet, is Soul Fight (since it's a gamecube game). So, of course I bought it. A Spirit of Shamans iso is out there, but, that might be incomplete (lacking a sound file, but still playable). The Funbari Spirits rom was out there on eMule for a while. Not sure if it works or not (I downloaded, it took like 2 months), and I have it saved off on a really old harddrive I don't use any more (and not sure if I can access it), but I just bought the game anyways.


    To answer your question, no, none of the Japanese Shaman King videogames will ever be brought to the USA, or into any other language than Japanese. 4Kids controls the SK videogame license (which they then sub-lease it out to Konami), and they have given up on the series. Unless another company picks it up in 2010 when their license runs out, then there will be no more Shaman King games released in the USA. Even if a company does pick up the license, there still won't be a game, since all the games would be on old game systems, and it's only hope would be on a "classic game download" system (Such as Xbox Live Arcade, or Virtual Console for the Wii). Plus, outside of Funbari Spirits (which isn't a very long game), there is no other "good" Shaman King game. All of them follow the anime (besides FS) or the Japanese Card Game (which is different than the English version). So there is no hope. It will never happen.

    So, if you have any questions about any of the Shaman King videogames, just ask, I can probably answer it.

    No, there is no patchs for those games. But to be honest, you don't really need them. I don't know Japanese, but I can play through most of the games. Heck, just last night I wasted 2 hours playing the Story Mode of Shaman King: Soul Fight. I might even make a video of the first hour or two of the game and upload it to youtube. Maybe.

    The games that are in Japanese, will always be in Japanese, but these games aren't text based RPGs. They are only 3 types of Japanese SK games:
    -Card Game
    -Fighter
    -Adventure/RPG-ish

    The only one which is even RPG like is Will of the Future. So because of that, I conside it one of the harder ones.

    The 4 (but we really only count 3, since 2 games are just red & blue versions) Card Game games have a bunch of text. But, I actually learned how to play the Japanese Shaman King card game by playing the game. Even though I didn't know Japanese. If you know how to play trading card games, that helps. Then it was all trial and error to figure out all the gameplay mechanics. Even better, there is (or maybe was by now), a faq that told you what every card did. Of course, I found that after figuring out the game, but that's helpful. Plus, there was (might not still be up, if I can find it), a site that can help you learn how to play the Japanese SK TCG game (which is in English, and tells you what the turns and moves are). Plus, Chou Senjiryokketsu 3 has two story modes. The extra story mode is where you play as Yoh and follow the anime events. But the main story mode (which is a semi-sequel to the first 2 games, with similar characters) is where you play in a world outside of Shaman King. In other words, you play as a Shaman King fan. So people you will meet will have cosplay references to SK characters in the game. It's kinda cool.

    I can probably re-find those other roms (outside of SoS, and FS, and one of the versions of Tcho Senji Ryakketu.), but I won't post them here, unless I get a moderator clearance about it.
