Game corner text changes

In European versions of Pokémon Platinum, the Slot Machines have been removed entirely. The US and Australian versions (and in turn, the Japanese version) keep the Slot Machines, but any European Pokémon Platinum game from Nintendo of Europe has been completely stripped of the Slot Machine. Any dialogue pertaining to the Slot Machines? That’s gone too.

This is the dialogue from the PAL English version, but it’s the same across German, Italian, PAL French, PAL Spanish, and any other PAL versions.

Slot Machines
(Slot machine zooms up)
It’s a Game Machine!

On certain machines every day
Found [5 to 20] Coins!

[PLAYER] put the Coins away in
the Coin Case.

Engineer
I want Coins, of course, but
setting records is hot, too!
Sure, battling with Pokémon is great,
but collecting Coins is pretty hot too!
Bald man
Listen, when CLEFAIRY appears, that’s
your chance to line up sevens.

Line those babies up and you’re into
the bonus round!

Hey! If you search the Game Machines
sometimes extra Coins fall out!

Thing is, it only tends to happen
once a day…

Fat otaku
Woohoo! CLEFAIRY! It’s adorable!
Just seeing it gets my pulse racing!

Oh, let me impart a piece of advice to you!

If the moon turns red, you don’t
want to get a replay because it
makes CLEFAIRY tired!

Aroooo! All these Coins! Just when you
think you’ve got ’em… they disappear!

I’ll let you in on a secret!

Sometimes you can find Coins in the
Game Machines which the previous person
forgot! Cha-ching!

Beauty on the slots
When a Poké Ball appears, it’s a
change to line up slot marks.

Replays and PIKACHU line up even if
you don’t make an effort.

But you need to aim for better marks,
like Poké Balls and Moon Stones.

I love Veilstone City because of the
department store and Game Corner.
It seems like I’m always coming here!

… But you know something?

I always have so much fun that before
I know it, it’s already night time!
But my trusty Pokémon are with me so
I’m not afraid of going home at night.

Looker
Looker: Ah, it is you, yes.

Examine, if you will, the reels.
The Team Galactic logo, it is here.

Further investigation is needed, and
I am just the man to do it.

Also, where the masses gather, so too
does information.

…Ack. My streak is broken.

Looker: Ah, it is you, yes.

Team Galactic, yes, I have a hunch
that they, too, may come here to play.

Further investigation is needed, and
I am just the man to do it.

Also, where the masses gather, so too
does information.

… Game Over? How can this be?

Beauty walking around
I’ll explain how the slot machines
work at this Game Corner.

During regular play, you should
stop the reels from the left.

During the bonus round, watch
where CLEFAIRY points and stop
the reels in that order.

Hi! Let me tell you a little
bit about the Game Corner!

There’s a very good reason to try
and collect a lot of coins here!

You see, next door, you can exchange your Coins for Technical Machines!

Man with spiky hair
A friend in my group scored a ton of
Coins here.

Why mess with a good thing?
I’ll try the same spot, too!

Recently, my friends keep beating
me at Pokémon battles so…
I come here to let off some steam.
Bald man near the wall
Sigh…
Nothing’s going my way today…
Are you a Trainer?
Did you battle the Gym Leader?

She happens to be my daughter.
She’s some kind of tough!

Are you a Trainer?

Did you battle the Gym Leader?

She happens to be my daughter.
She’s a real tough cookie!
