Welcome to shmuplations.com!

shmuplations.com is a repository of Japanese game developer translations, covering primarily (but not exclusively) older arcade and console games from the 80s and 90s. Despite the name “shmuplations”, I cover all genres: platformers, rpgs, strategy, vs fighting, and more.

If you enjoy my work, please support shmuplations on patreon!
Look at all the hidden treasure just waiting to be translated! ;)
