Sony really puts a lot of work into localizing the Minna no Golf games into Hot Shots Golf. On top of changing the text to English Clap Hanz usually makes character changes and creates new costumes for the Western version. Minna no Golf 5 came out in Japan last July, we’re getting it sometime in March. Perhaps, not too far from the March 28 European release date.
Back at TGS ’07 I spoke to Clap Hanz about Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds before it had an official subtitle. I was surprised they had no immediate plans on changing the invisible walls found in the online lounge, but they are adding something for the North America version. We just don’t know what that is at this point.
