Translations: Obscure Translation Two for One!
« on: November 16, 2013, 08:01:51 pm »

Update By: Pennywise

Today we present two translations for your usual NES translation and a more uncommon GB translation.

The Samurai Lord Musashi was an anime series that aired in Japan during the early 90's and was made by the same folks who did Yu Yu Hakusho, Studio Pierrot. The games appear to have been cash-ins and were released while the series was still on the air.

The Samurai Lord Musashi is essentially a retelling of the life of Musashi Miyamoto, Japan's legendary historical figure. The anime was most likely inspired directly by a trilogy of movies starring Toshiro Mifune, The Samurai Trilogy.

This is yet another joint project between aishsha and Pennywise and it is nothing short of perfection.

Unfortunately the NES game wasn't tested as much as we would have liked. We would appreciate it if special attention could be paid to using the Search command to find stuff. The game makes that aspect quite difficult by being picky and not all the text relating to it has been found in-game. Therefore, some text might be messed up.

Nice job guys, what's the GB game like? Just a scaled down version of the NES title, or something completely different?

I've found a video of the gameboy version and it looks very different from the nes one, although it looks like an action-RPG as well but it seems to be more focused into action. I haven't been able to find the gameboy rom anywhere to try it, though.

It's a watered down version of Goemon in my opinion.

The usual crappy outdated ROM sites list the game as Musashi Road. Everyone should have their own No-Intro ROM sets.
