Old English Mr. Saturn Font

Lol, I’m going to try to convince Hyperbound to use this in Unearthed.

lol vey cool! Does the patch change the dialogue as well to make the Mr. Saturns sound like proper Englishmen? 😛

Is it just me, or is anyone else going to play through the game with Ranma 1/2 characters?
