Space Griffon that's yet another mecha dungeon crawler? It does stem from PS1 originated on her so I recall not giving this one much play

Space Griffon VF9 iS NOT NOT NOT playable if you dont know japanese.
You reach a point after level 1 where you need to solve puzzles involving japanese lettering and i had zero luck figuring it out.

Maybe if you had a guide or something but i highly doubt you'd just figure out a japanese combination luck easily.

Also Piggy Backing on this thread:

What Japanese games are people playing or you have on your GDEMU/USB-GDROM/MODE?
Im trying to make a shortlist of popular japanese titles people are playing that doesn't have to be the entire ~647 game library Japan got. So they can be expedited into the cataloging for openMenu.
