Japanese font support in system menus?

Does the font used by the system menu popup not support Japanese? I have tried adding localized options to my menus by requesting localized strings from graphics.getLocalizedText() passing them to playdatemenu:addOptionsMenuItem(), but my Japanese strings render with missing character glyphs.

Bumping this info request - I just ran into the same issue... there seems to be no kana in either of the system menu fonts.

This seems strange, as the localization system seems to be there explicitly to support Japanese in the first place :wink:

It's true, the fonts used there do not support Japanese characters. We would like to localize the system to Japanese in the future, just a matter of finding the time!
