Translations: Aighina's Prophecy (NES) English Translation
« on: June 28, 2017, 09:41:30 pm »

Update By: Psyklax

Aigiina no Yogen - From The Legend of Balubalouk, also known as Aighina's Prophecy, has been fully translated into English. It's an arcade-style action platformer released in 1986, and thus is one of the first Famicom games to use a large amount of in-game dialogue. Up to now the only translation available only translated the in-game menu and a couple of lines of NPC dialogue: now, the introduction, password system, ending and NPC dialogue has been fully translated (and corrected, in the case of the ending).

While it's perfectly possible to complete the game without understanding the text, having it translated brings a lot to the game, and documents you can find during the game will give you clues of how to progress. That being said, it is still fiendishly difficult to figure everything out without a walkthrough. If you've never tried this piece of platform fun before, why not give it a try now?

Well done! The translation is of really nice quality. Great job translating all those early Famicom games, although I do believe that the most interesting stuff is still ahead of you. :)

Thanks! :) I know that some of the early games haven't been done because they don't excite people's interests as much, but nevertheless I think it's a good goal to aim for. I learnt a lot from Gomoku Narabe Renju, and I learnt significantly more from this. It'll help me going forward. Now I need to decide what comes next! :)

Isn't it spelled "Aegina"? Are there any official romanizations of the title spelled "Aighina" or (besides the C64 version) "Aigina"?

Cool. Looks similar to some of the Ninja Jajamaru games.
War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength.

It feels pretty similar, yeah. I'm just recording a longplay going through it in the shortest way possible. It can be pretty mean with the way you have to progress (think Simon's Quest red crystal) but at least they give you both a password system and a way to continue. Still brutal if you don't have a walkthrough, though.
