Dragon Quest: Delocalized

Hack of Dragon Warrior

Description:

Dragon Quest: Delocalized is a project aimed at giving English speakers the opportunity to play the first Dragon Quest game in a form that looks and reads like the Japanese Famicom version, while still retaining key improvements from the North American release.

The script has been entirely retranslated in a contemporary English style that matches that of the Famicom version. Work was initially based on a translation document by x_loto. Over several stages of improvement, the script has been thoroughly revised in collaboration with nejimakipiyo and Dattebayo. The authors believe that the resulting script is more accurate than any other English translation, while still conveying fluid, natural language.

In the standard version of Dragon Quest: Delocalized, all NPCs have been reverted to their native front-facing Japanese sprites. The hero has been given additional sets of custom animation frames to allow him to walk in four directions. Optional patches are now included for those who want to experience the retranslation with traditional North American graphics.

  • Note – Version 1.08 was a major update with at least 100 text improvements over the previous version. The original Famicom sprites and palettes have now been fully implemented with none of the previous compromises.

Please submit any issues or feedback on this combined project thread:
