BTW: the 'japcrap' (lol) means 'The Seal of El Giza' (Eru Giiza no fuuin) and is the main title of the game in Japan and the subtitle of the game in the rest of the world Smile.

never knew that. just assumed it woul be something like "Kiingus Vellii". Does this Eru Giiza place/person/thing represents anything or is it just made up by Konami ?

El Giza is the real place location of the great pyramids in Egypt.

The 4 Kanji characters do mean King's Valley, only in a slightly different way... something like: Valley of The Pharao's. I guess Rikusu will correct me here if I'm wrong.

I can remember people 'translating' those 'Eru Giiza no Fuuin' into Pyramid Power. Wink I ended up being one of them because my very poor Japanese.

Didn't the manual say something like that? (the el geezer dude thingy) It does sound very familair to me.

El Giza is the real place location of the great pyramids in Egypt.
Konami tents to do such things often. Have you ever checked some USAS terms in google? e.g. the ruins names... (very int'resting)
Same for MOG (greek mythology) and prolly KVII has some references as wel..

If I remember correctly, the Japanese equivalent of 'King's Valley' is written in small characters above the main title indeed. IIRC, however, they consist of only three kanji and one hiragana. It says (IIRC, again) 'Ouke no tani', literally meaning 'Valley of the Royal Family', freely interpretable as 'King's Valley' Smile
