Castle Shikigami 2 Trivia (PlayStation 2)
MangaA manga adaption of Shikigami no Shiro, written by Tohru Zekuu and illustrated by Yuna Takanagi, was serialized in Kodansha's Magazine Z from December 2003 until December 2004 and collected in three volumes. A sequel series by the same authors, Shikigami no Shiro: Nejireta Shiro ("The Twisted Castle"), was serialized in the same magazine from January 2005 until March 2008, and collected in a further eight volumes. Both series are based on the events of the first two games, focusing on the second.
TranslationThe American PS2 version of this game features a notoriously bad English translation. On top of the lines being so literally translated that they're almost incomprehensible, the voice acting features lines read by the wrong actor, lines where the actor reads directions as part of the dialogue, lines left in Japanese, and lines that are completely missing.
The translation was completely redone for the PAL release, and the voice acting was removed altogether.
