Yeah it's two player co-op & plays a lot similar to Secret of Mana aka Seiken Densetsu 2. I'm surprised no one has done an English translation on it yet despite not being Squaresoft to people lol

I played a bit of this years ago, and it honestly didn't impress me at all. The characters are too big and everything moves really slowly. Maybe it gets better but it just struck me as something really clunky and not-fun.

It's unfortunately one of the lesser Action-RPGs on the console. Uninspired level design, mediocre controls and boring story. On top of that the menus have ridiculous loading times.
The 2-Player possibility is nice, but it doesn't make it a good game.

I think it could've been a nice addition to the US SNES library imo though mediocre but just something to hold on for those Action RPG fans or Co-op fans in general. I wouldn't mind an official localisation of a Japan Only title at the time despite wanting more of a similar experience to Secret of Mana personally!

Well, it's unenjoyable. I can say that much about it, even after trying the co-op. And it doesn't get better.
This game is mediocre, and translating kusoge isn't exactly a popular thing... Tales of the Tempest non-withstanding.
However Bandai redeemed themselves with that Wonderswan Color SoM clone of theirs (Star Hearts). It's quite decent.
