Dragon Quest I+II

Super Nintendo

Game Description:

Dragon Quest I+II is a role playing game for the Super Nintendo.

Translation Description:

Included in the archive is a DW patch and a DQ patch. The DW patch changes the names to adhere to the old Dragon Warrior NES games, while the names in the DQ patch are closer to the original Japanese (NOT the more recent Dragon Quest English releases, as this patch pre-dates those).

There’s (reportedly) some untranslated text in Dragon Warrior 1. If you rescue the princess and don’t bring her to the king, when you defeat the last boss and go back to the king, there will be different ending dialogue that was left untranslated.

An addendum patch (link) can be applied over the English translation to fix the broken title screen in the DQ1 part of the game.

User Review Information

DQ Patch 2.0 - DW I

Reviewed By: iamralph on 01 Jul 2012

After giving DW I a complete play through, I was mostly impressed with this translation. I found/recall only two typos. I don’t remember the first anymore as it was in a one time occurrence in dialogue. The other is a prefix of “4″ to your character name when using the Princess’s Love item. Both are forgivable. One problem I found ( possibly an emulation error, but seems more likely related to the patch) is during certain conditions I have not deciphered, upon battle victory, the game will appear to freeze. After much experimentation, I found this is related to the sound. It can be fixed by un-checking CPU sound emulation in Snes9x sound options–your game will then unfreeze. Perhaps under different emulators this does not occur at all, hence why this was missed. Or, maybe there are multiple versions of the game floating around and I patched a different version. Regardless, the translation itself is solid. So, I’d recommend it to anyone looking to replay this classic.

I’ve not yet completed DW II, but so far it is also solid. The only thing so far is at one point a line return was missed, causing a graphical error in the text during a one-time dialogue line. Unless I edit this review later, it’s a safe assumption that the DW II translation is of the same level of excellence.
