Aoshi00 asked if Operation Darkness had a Japanese language option. I thought it did, but when I scrolled through the menus I couldn’t find anything. I sent over an e-mail to see to if I was missing it in the build I have and discovered Operation Darkness will not contain the original voice acting.
Even more interesting is the script has been altered from the original Japanese version. The writing changed so much Atlus could not keep the Japanese voice acting in the game. Atlus has a mantra of sticking with literal translations for their titles, but Operation Darkness is an exception. Now I’m curious about the differences between the two versions.
Something else unique about Operation Darkness is before the game loads a screen comes up explaining there is extensive gore in the title. I haven’t seen anything worse than Ninja Gaiden II yet and the Operation Darkness was not rated CERO Z in Japan so this might be nothing at all.
