A translation for the menu screens in Onore no Shinzuru Michi wo Yuke on PSP.
After pressing any button on the title screen, you'll be presented with the main menu screen.
From top to bottom, the options are:
Multiplayer and demo sharing both require another PSP within range. Tutorial takes you through a basic level, explaining how to play as you go along.
Selecting Story mode will display the world map.
Levels are selected by moving left and right through areas in the bar at the top, each level can be replayed and the next one you need to play to advance the story is signified by a pinwheel. When you select a level, you'll be asked to confirm that you want to play it. From top to bottom:
When a level ends, the results screen will be displayed.
These are the bonuses you can earn, with the points affecting your rank. From top to bottom:
CLEAR BONUS - for clearing the level
HEALTH BONUS - for the amount of remaining clones
ITEM BONUS - for collecting items such as gold in certain levels
OBJECT BONUS - for destroying items such as scenery
REMAINING MOVE ENERGY BONUS - for unused magic points accrued
ENEMY DESTRUCTION BONUS - for destroying enemies
TOTAL - for adding up
In Mission mode, you're just playing for rank, but in Story mode the score you earn here will be used as experience and will level you up, earning skill points. At the end of each level in story mode, you'll be shown the customisation screen.
The first number is your current level, and directly below that is a gauge showing how many more experience points you'll need before reaching the next level. The third number, below the white line, shows how many skill points you have available to spend, with the rest of the yellow numbers showing how many skill points are required to level up that skill. Those skills, from top to bottom are:
ATTACK POWER - higher level means more damage
MOVEMENT SPEED - level up for quicker ninjas
NUMBER OF CLONES - the amount of "lives" you'll have
BODY SWAP TECHNIQUE - the amount of time a summoned statue will depress a switch
FIRE TECHNIQUE - the power of your fire attack
WIND TECHNIQUE - the power and range of your wind attack
To spend skill points, select the skill you want to upgrade, press right to set it to the desired level, and press Circle to confirm, you'll then be asked if yo're sure.
If you press X, you'll be asked if you're sure you want to quit; you'll keep any unspent skill points but you won't be able to edit skills until the next level is played. So, sure you want to quit?
Mission mode differs from Story mode. Rather than having the ability to customise your ninja's stats, you're given specific stats to begin with and have to deal with the constraints placed upon you. Levels are selected similarly to Story mode, though with the option of seven missions in each area. When a mission is chosen, the conditions are displayed.
The numbers from left to right show the number of clones, attack power level, body swap technique level, fire technique level, and wind technique level.
There are two remaining options on the main menu. Firstly, Options.
From top to bottom:
SOUND EFFECTS VOLUME
AUTOSAVE - this is off by default, don't forget to save!
The other main menu option is Help, which displays two further options.
First is CONTROLS, which just displays an image of the controls. The second displays a very pretty video showing the places in the game.
In-game, pressing the right trigger will display a menu asking if you'd like to cut your clone's life short, and move on to the next ninja.
Pausing the game will bring up the pause menu.
From here you can continue playing with the top option, select BGM with the second option, or quit with the third option.
Are you sure you want to quit?
