Phantasy Star Generation: 4 - A Relocalization

Hack of Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millennium

Description:

Phantasy Star Generation:4 is both a relocalization and retranslation of the original English script and proper nouns (weapons, monsters, names, etc.)

  • Its primary goal: restore every mistranslated connection to the other PS games, to and ensure the main story & series themes best match the original Japanese.
  • Its secondary goal: make the game’s script more colloquial, fun, and emotional, from NPCs to key story moments.

Graphics/sound are unmodified from the original and final English release.

The readme has the basics, but also included is the annotated script & changelog, with additional picture & info on the project website.

V 2_0 - 11/15/18 - Author completed game playthrough – almost all typos/linebreaks are fixed Many new small text edits 90%-rewritten ending (rewrite was never implemented properly in earlier patch versions).

Also note that V 1_30 fixed a GAME-BREAKING GLITCH. If you’re on anything prior to 1_30 please upgrade!

There are three versions of the patch:

  • “Generation 4″ best matches the SEGA AGES English translations as well as the original Japanese PSIV, and has a few additional upgrades (vivify’s Proper Caser mod, some name changes, etc.).

This one is recommended for both new players and longtime PS fans. It includes lory1990’s Bugfix patch, as well.

  • The other two match the original SEGA Master System/Genesis/Mega Drive English translations in terms of classic enemy names, magic, etc.
  1. 1 has ALL CAPS and no bugfix patch to keep closest to the SMS/Gen/MD versions.
  2. 2 has ProperCaser applied as well as the bugfix patch.

As SEGA canceled “Phantasy Star Generation:4″ many years ago, this project aimed to create a definitive, series-ending Phantasy Star experience that can also be better appreciated by new players.
