"Unreleased Japanese Final Fight Intro" is All Your Base-tastic

This "unreleased Japanese intro" to classic beat-em-up Final Fight might not be real, but it is hilarious.

What you see above is supposedly the unreleased intro sequence to the Japanese version of Capcom's classic beat-em-up Final Fight, never-before-seen until it resurfaced today on the Capcom Unity blog. Personally, I'm not entirely sure it's genuine - it's been a long time since I've taken a Japanese class, but there are some points where the speech and text just don't match up.

Real or not, though, it's absolutely hilarious. This is the sort of Babelfish-quality Engrish we haven't seen in videogames since the likes of Zero Wing and its famous "all your base are belong to us."

Go ahead - I dare you not to laugh at lines like "Many violences are happening!!" and "Ha ha! Mr. Haggar, the troubles begin for you!" And those aren't even the funniest lines in the video.

It's enough to get one psyched for Final Fight: Double Impact, which comes out next week (the 14th and 15th, to be precise) on XBLA and PSN. Which, now that I think about it, was probably the whole point of this video.

Still funny, though.

Love the misspellings.

"A woman type I thought I told to stay at the home!"

Hilarious.

EDIT: Makes me think of an old Pokemon home*.
And the guy who said it is really, really sexist.

*Like and old folks home, but for Pokemon

Mayor of America, Haggar speaks now!.

Brilliant.

This...this is better than All Your Base.

"Who is this? I don't even..."

MANY VIOLENCES ARE HAPPENING!

Crime run here all day long!

I know, I hate the guy! He keeps running through my garden. Stupid bastard....

Apparently Jessica has been kidnapped many times.

" WHERE JESSICA IS!!!! WHO THIS IS! I DON'T EVEN."

I can't... stop... *laughs to death*

Is any one here familiar enough with Japanese idioms to tell us if this is good Japanese if it were translated word for word?

"HA HA! HA! HA...HA...HA???"

Best question ever.

VGStrife:
"HA HA! HA! HA...HA...HA???"

Best question ever.

gah you got me ninja'd.
I nearly fell off the chair there aye xD

Ah you've got to love Japanese Engrish - where sexism goes to multiply.

Greatest engrish I've herd in a long time...

Understanding the Japanese and why the lines are translated that way actually makes it funnier.

But my favorite line is the simple "Jessica?" from Guy. "ジェシカ?" hahahaha

Yeah, not real, I mean, it has an "I don't even...", but it IS funny.

Onyx Oblivion:
This...this is better than All Your Base.

"Who is this? I don't even..."

MANY VIOLENCES ARE HAPPENING!

Lmao, made me giggle. Goes to prove that Engrish is still hilarious!

"A woman type I thought I had told to stay at home"
"Jessica has been stolen again?"
"Maybe television is turned on now"

I mean seriously? Surely Capcom would have one decent english speaker in the entire dev team

    "Oh ho! News is come soon! Maybe TV screen turned on now?"
    "Not again!!!"
    "She may look comfortably! But may be for not too long???"

That is some priceless Engrish at work, darn is that ever funny.

XD
That's some horrible translations, but funny.

"Where are Jessica?" and "Maybe TV screen turned on now?" made me laugh so hard. I agree, this is up there with All Your Base, but I prefer that one because of the hilariously awkward English dub.

You know this is still hilarious, but (i may not be fluent in japanese but i know alot) if you were to take the actual japanese in this and translate it exactly word for word in english...the translation would be right. On the other hand, this is CAPCOM...they have made so many games in English that i would think by now they got this stuff downpacked...

Interesting. Capcom is doing for translated dialogue what they did for Mega Man 9 and 10's 'box art' in an attempt to increase the authenticity of the retro game.They probably oversold it,though.
Nostalgic yet?

where is jessica i don't even

If it's fake, it's not as hilarious as it could be. Those damn woman-types not staying at home.

You hurt my JESSICA!

OT: That is hilarious. I can't wait till this is coming out now???

when i was younger, i used to love this game's soundtrack !

also: "where are jessica" that's so badly written that i almost felt/fell like in the 80's !

Apparently Jessica has been kidnapped stolen many times.

Fixed that for you.

Will Final Fight Double Strike be chock-full of misogyny as well? If so, I think we have a winning game title on our hands, gentlemen!

Kind of like Adam, but with more oomph?

This is fake, the original final fight was a CPS 1 arcade unit. Those only have 8-bit sound and the entire game is encoded on rom chips. There isn't any way that audio could be so high quality or even fit into the rom.

Also, the text on the intro is in Japanese on the Japanese Final Fight ROM.

did anyone else LOL really hard at the title?

OT: the subtitles are amazing. Oscar worthy

"WHO IS THIS I DON'T EVEN--"

lold hard.

That means that they've suceeded in their goal. Here I was thinking that they were trying too hard.

Are we sure this isnt a late april fools? If not, this is the new awesome... more awesome than the Mayor of America.

wow i just had a flashback with the "more oomph" it made me think of the Hitman 4 level in the Porntycoon Mansion with that barman...

The lesson is women should stay at home because if they don't, their father, spouse, and his best friend will have to beat up an entire gang of criminals to get you back. This is a lesson our generation of kids need to learn.
