Searching for Zelda 2 J (FDS) NES port
« on: May 20, 2011, 08:19:38 am »
Is there a direct port of the japanese Zelda 2 Link no Bouken to a NES/FC cartridge? And if yes, is the FDS extra sound preserved? I'm not searching for a normal US translated release!
I have read somewhere on the forums that there is a pirate cartridge of it. Would be great to have a rom working on some normal mapper (MMC3?).

The FDS extra sound can't be preserved on a cartridge because it only exists on the FDS.

It can be done, I just started playing it.
the trick is you need one of these

it plays backups from a compact flash card
but it has an additional sound chip on board
so if you solder a certain pin

you get full sound
its not very hard, like i said i did it
