The Shiny Festa games were the first video games from THE [email protected] franchise to be officially released anywhere outside Asia, though some non-game media had previously been released in the United States. There are a few translation errors (such as the word "hobbies" being misspelled as "hoobies" in the character profiles), and all swimsuit costumes were removed from the localizations (replaced by different costumes), likely to make the game more friendly to players of all ages.
