[edit] Game title

Japanese
迷宮
English
Mystery Island

島 on its own is read しま, but in compound words, including names, it sometimes becomes じま. This is the same 島 as in 広島 and 硫黄島, though the locals always read the latter as いおうとう rather than いおうじま (you might recognize that more readily as "Iwo Jima").

[edit] Intro

Japanese
困ったことになってしもうた
English
This has turned into a troubling situation.

This man speaks in Kansai-ben (although he doesn't use it consistently). We'll have to deal with him for the rest of the game, so hang tight. ;)

Japanese
魔者達に夢袋[bag]を奪い取られてしまったのじゃ
English

(Here, [bag] represents a bag icon.)

Here he uses しもった instead of しもうた. See, he's already inconsistent!
