ROM Hacks: Leading Ladies
« on: October 02, 2020, 11:40:35 am »

Update By: QUXNLADY

The most amazing part of ROM Hacking is the ability to take something you've grown up with and love and make changes to it. To remix and to adapt and share with the world your idea.

With the Release of "Super Royal Pals. 3", it's time to highlight some other hacks that change the protagonist to a woman.

Zelda Series
Sonic Series



Pokemon Series
Mario Series


Other Games


Hopefully this will inspire people to make more hacks like this!

While female protagonists in video games were uncommon in the 80s and 90s, it's not uncommon now to see ROM Hacks which switch out the player for a female character.

In the Super Royal Pals. hacks, which music/sound effects were changed?

Also, in Super Royal Pals. 3, when starting a world or switching players, it still says Mario/Luigi:

I didn't know about the Shadowrun hack, that one is VERY interesting to me. Thanks for that. I prefer playing female characters in damn near everything.

Huh - wasn't expecting to see my old Pokemon hack referenced today. Glad I got that minor update to it released beforehand.
Congrats to QUXNLADY and everyone who was linked!

I like how this also covers the market of male loners who end up using these as waifu fantasy material (probably moreso in these parts).
Mini-reviews, retro sound chip tribute, romhacks and general listage at my site: Mini-Revver.

Also, in Super Royal Pals. 3, when starting a world or switching players, it still says Mario/Luigi:


Hello Mr. Green,

The Music/Sound that was changed was the title screen. In the original version of Super Mario Bros. 3, there is no sound except the sound of pressing select or start.

Also, that's what you get when you use savestates to test quickly. I'll get a patch up to fix those names.

Kind Regards,

QUXNLADY
