ダウン・ザ・ワールド

An interesting demo, all it does is loop with a banner between scenes, nothing really playable. Seems cheaper to just use a VHS tape.

Title - Final / Sample

The title is replaced with a sales banner with a release date. I didn’t even see a similar screen in the final.

Extra Intro Scene

There is an extra intro sequence not in the final demo. Any help translating the strings would be wonderful!

Dialog 1 Dialog 2 Dialog 3 Dialog 4 Dialog 5 Dialog 6 Dialog 7 Dialog 8 Dialog 9 Dialog 10 Dialog 11 Dialog 12 Dialog 13 Dialog 14 Dialog 15 Dialog 16 Dialog 17 Dialog 18 Dialog 19 Dialog 20 Dialog 21 Dialog 22

Extra Outro Scenes

There is also an extra few outro sequences not in the final demo. Any help translating them too, would be wonderful!

Dialog 1 Dialog 2 Dialog 3 Dialog 4 Dialog 5 Dialog 6 Dialog 7 Dialog 8 Dialog 9 Dialog 10 Dialog 11

Demo - Final / Sample

The only differences seem to be moving objects and the text slightly offset.
