The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass and R4 DS, Strange Bedfellows

If you are looking to run that new Zelda game: The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass on your R4, you'll need to update your R4 kernel to the latest version (currently at v1.10), otherwise you'll end up with a not so nice error screen in Japanese.

This is due to the 2 MB save file required by the game, and the previous kernel only created a 512 KB save file, triggering the problem.

The kernel update is available at the R4 website. But to save yourself from a gazillion headaches (just kidding) and do the developers some justice, purchase the original version over at Play-Asia (click here). The English version is available for pre-order as well (click here).

For more coverage of the US/English version of the Phantom Hourglass, head over to my brand new post over here.
