See, this is why server preservation is important.

While this game's online features were once accessible, they are (as of May 20, 2014) no longer officially supported and online-exclusive features may be documented as now-unseen content.
So very stubbly.
This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.
Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Kousoku Card Battle: Card Hero is a card battle RPG and the sequel to the Game Boy Color game Trade & Battle: Card Hero.

Unused English Mode

Apparently, there were some early plans to localize this game for Western markets, as the Japanese release still holds the remnants of an English language mode. Next to the folders with the text for the Japanese kanji and kana modes (jp and kn), there is also a folder called us which contains an assortment of leftover files - some text has been translated into English, some files have Japanese or English placeholder text, yet others are copies of their respective Japanese files, while many files are either empty or outright missing.

This highly-incomplete English mode can still be enabled by, for example, changing the folder from which the game loads its text. Offset 0x168DD0 in the ROM holds the string jp, which as mentioned before is the folder name for the kanji mode text. Changing this to us will make the game use the English text when kanji mode is selected in the game's settings.

Note that, besides the obvious state of incompleteness, the game will crash shortly after beginning the story mode.
