Gallery: Vroom in the night sky’s Translation (Nintendo Switch)

Vroom in the night sky by POISOFT was a March 3, 2017 launch title for the Nintendo Switch in multiple regions around the world. The English version quickly became notorious for its poor translation.

Original Release

Updated Version

Word of Vroom‘s translation spread around the Internet, eventually making its way to the game’s developer. Embarrassed, the company rushed to release a patch with an updated translation and several gameplay improvements. The new patch launched on April 6, 2017. Fans of the bad translation assumed the charmingly poor translation was gone forever. Instead, the “improved” translation made many things worse!

Before and After

So which lines were changed? Is the new translation better? Here are several comparisons with 1.0.0 images on the top and 1.1.0 images on the bottom.
