Soul Eater NDS game now available in English!

27 May 2020 1:32PM EST - Update by PhantomandGhost

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

A sound soul dwells within a sound mind and a sound body.

A full English translation of the 2008 NDS game Soul Eater: Medusa’s Plot (based on the hit anime of the same name) has been released!

The root of all evil is madness, but madness exists in everything. In order to control this paradox, Lord Death-the shepherd of souls, serves as guardian to mankind… Set at Death Weapon Meister Academy, a school founded by Lord Death, the story follows the adventures of Maka Albarn and her giant scythe weapon, the titular Soul Eater, whose ultimate goal is to make Soul into a Death Scythe. However, they are struggling to find and claim the witch’s soul they need to achieve it.

While on assignment in Italy, the pair become entangled in the intricate plots of the fearsome witch Medusa, whose goal is to revive the Kishin, a being that turned mad and became a demon after consuming the souls of innocent humans. After an intense battle with Medusa’s child, Crona, Maka and Soul return to Death City and find themselves being teamed up with rival meisters Black Star and Death the Kid, along with their weapons (Tsubaki, who can transform into a variety of ninja weapons and Liz and Patty, twin sisters who transform into a pair of pistols) in order to fight against Medusa and stop her from unleashing the madness of the Kishin upon the world.

A retelling of the first half of the anime’s storyline, players can step foot into the shoes of Maka, Black☆Star and Kid, to train and take on missions that will test their metal, fighting against some of the legendary villains from the series. Picking up the from the fast-paced, action-packed drama of the series, the game offers a unique chance to explore the world of Soul Eater as it’s never been seen before.

Ganbare Goemon, Ganbare Goemon 2, and Ganbare Goemon Gaiden have all been updated to Mystical Ninja, Mystical Ninja 2, and Mystical Ninja Saga of the Golden Pipe.

Enjoy the Westernized Goemon adventures.

Aladdin from Genesis to NES

23 May 2020 9:54AM EST - Update by Mario Bendor

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

“Disney’s Aladdin” on Genesis is widely considered to be one of the best games of the platform, and it is often debated if it’s better than the game with the same name on SNES.

That SNES game has a bootleg port for NES made by Hummer Team and it’s often called the “best bootleg game of all time”. Two hacks were made respectively to better the game’s controls and music. So “Aladdin Hummer Team Deluxe” was made to improve the graphics, you can see a brief demonstration in this video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zH0jWL6cF4Q

The Sega game also got a bootleg port, this time made by Super Games, and it’s not as good as the other game, but it’s still a very good bootleg game. So “Soup Aladdin” was created to give that game the same treatment, improving the graphics as much as possible instead of only the uglier sprites, especially because the Genesis game is famous for having beautiful animation. Hoping to encourage other people to improve this game on gameplay and music, just as the first two hacks inspired HT DX.

“Aladdin Hummer Team Deluxe” got decent attention, so this post exists to see if it’s a bad idea, or if there is actual interest.

Have a nice day!

When others go Right, try going Left

19 May 2020 6:29PM EST - Update by C-Dude

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

When a player considers alternate narratives for Final Fantasy 3 (SNES), the mind naturally gravitates to the powerful imperial general cut down too soon. Leo Cristophe.

Hackers are aware of this. Indeed, many dig into the heart of this game trying to give Leo a more significant role. But when others go right, does not curiosity and a contrarian spirit drive you to go left?

Who would ever give Banon a second thought? He’s gruff, the player is forced to protect him lest a game-over be inflicted, and as rebel leaders go he’s a bit doughy. The game itself even writes him off, leaving the player to decide his fate when things are at their worst. He is an unresolved thread, a loose end.

So instead of turning right, this hack goes left. Who knows what waits to be found in the rough crags of this path? Will the gamble be worthwhile, or will it succumb to the elements on the cold moor? You decide.

Game Gear's first ‹RPG›, Eternal Legend, ‹translated›

19 May 2020 1:17PM EST - Update by Supper

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

An English ‹translation› for the Game Gear’s first ‹RPG›, Eternal Legend, has been ‹released›.

‹Legend› tells of the ‹lost city› of ‘Millennium’, a golden ‹paradise› created to praise the ‹gods›. It is said that the bearer of the eight [Golden Knives] shall open the way to ‘Millennium’ and its long-lost ‹treasures› and ‹technology›. One day, «Arwyn», a young ‹treasure hunter›, unexpectedly finds himself caught up in the ‹search› for ‘Millennium’. In a ‹journey› spanning the entire ‹world›, «Arwyn», together with companions «Ryall» and «Blue Moon», must solve ‹mysteries› and uncover ‹conspiracies› from across the ages in order to learn the ‹secret› of ‘Millennium’…

Eternal Legend is a 1991 RPG developed by Japan Art Media for the Sega Game Gear. It’s a very orthodox RPG notable mostly for being the very first one on the Game Gear. It features vast overworlds based on real-world continents, a simple monster summoning mechanic, and a highly idiosyncratic system of ‹text bracketing›.

As the first RPG on the console, the game is unfortunately a bit primitive in some respects. In an attempt to make it slightly more palatable to modern players, the translation also includes a complete game walkthrough and provides optional cheats to speed up movement and prevent random encounters, though players interested in the original experience can forgo these if they prefer.

This patch was the work of TheMajinZenki (translation), Supper (hacking), and cccmar (editing and testing). The authors hope that you’ll enjoy the game, despite all ‹obstacles›.

"Super Flyin Again" Takes Flight!

13 May 2020 10:21AM EST - Update by beinor

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

UPODATE! This hack now featured on Blue Television Games YouTube channel!

Super Flyin Again, a romhack based on Super Mario Bros 3 (NES), has just been released, and the author would love to have you take it for a spin. This is a sequel, and the idea for the first one came from the new tech which Nintendo had given to Raccoon Mario in Super Mario Maker, where he can recharge his flight timer by hitting enemies!

This is a moderately difficult romhack, but only because of the precision demanded of the player. You must fly and recharge your flight timer by hitting enemies. If you fail to do this in time, you will lose flight, and either die by falling into a pit, or be forced to restart, due to not being able to regain p-speed and regain flight.

The first two levels following the training level are much more forgiving, and are used to get you accustomed to the custom powerup (the Fire Leaf), and the mechanics of the game. There is even a leaf powerup in one of the question mark blocks in one of these levels, in case you lose it!

Difficulty grades carefully in this game, but lets you know it means business pretty early on!

The author of this hack has made an extensive README pdf document enclosed in the project’s ZIP file, and gives great depth of insight in a well-organized format. A fun read to see some behind-the-scenes stuff!


If you’re worried about burning through all of your Fire Leaf powerups, feel free to add this patch to the game. It will keep the inventory from ever being decremented. Once it is in there, you can use it as much as you want.
