This page lists the game research archives I’ve made publicly available on the Legends of Localization site. Each archive usually contains hundreds to thousands of screenshots, save files, and other documents. Generally, the screenshots come from two sources: a Japanese game and its English translation. The screenshots and data are lightly organized, but have received little or no curation.
For more information, see the Research & Data FAQ.
