SNES - Might and Magic Book 2
« on: July 08, 2018, 06:45:05 am »
Hi.. just seen that Might and Magic Book 2 English patch has just been released on the SNES, http://www.romhacking.net/translations/3693/, i'm confused a little so here's a couple of question i hope someone will be able to answer for me..

1. Wasn't this game already released in English as Might and Magic II: Gates to Another World (also known as Might and Magic Book Two: Gates to Another World)? the one published by Sammy Studio/Elite in the USA.

2. Is this Japanese game a totally different game then to the one mentioned above from the USA?

Thanks to anyone who can answer my two questions.

AH! nvm.. it seems the cancelled USA release and PAL released was one version and the Japanese version of M&M2 were practically 2 different games with the same game title.

Yes, the Japanese game is different. I assume it's at least not as buggy as the PAL-release and the Genesis version.

 It would be great to see explained in detail what exactly the mentioned changes were compared to the original.

Why not just boot them both up and see for yourself? It will take 1 minutes to see the differences.

I'm relatively familiar with the original, I'm not having differences in mind like the interface which are obvious from the screenshots. I'm more curious about changes such as different dungeons etc. things you'd need a different walkthrough for.
