Slayers is a role playing game for the Super Nintendo. Based on an anime/manga with the same title.
After eight years (to the exact day!) of intense labors by many - some tragic and others triumphant - Matt’s Messy Room and D-D are jointly announcing the penultimate closure of another success story. We are releasing Slayers English on its 8th anniversary - the final day of winter. Except for a few small details planned for our first update, Slayers is finished and 100% compatible with real hardware. Because older emulators do not appear to fully support this game, including the Japanese ROM, we are recommending BSNES as the emulator of choice.
Please consult the Readme.doc in our Slayers V1.00 archive for additional information, especially you Slayers anime and novel fans who may not be familiar with playing console videogames on PCs through the implementation of hardware emulators.
Players are also invited to visit our Slayers forum to discuss any matters pertaining to your experiences with our patch. We welcome being apprised of any problems, glitches, or typos you might encounter. In fact, we are highly receptive to gaming feedback from everyone - including n00bs - that is presented in a thoughtful manner that properly respects the great effort we have put into this patch.
We wrote the English story to the best of our abilities - for our own enjoyment - in a Western localization style attuned to our own interpretation of the Slayers culture. The results turned out so well, in our opinions, we voted to share our English patch with the world. Enjoy!

User Review Information
For Old School FansReviewed By: Klaviaturist on 01 Dec 2010
Slayers brings really nothing new to the JRPG genre. It’s fairly basic with some unusual dialog, a lot of just bizarre humor, and a DQ like battle system (although not identical). Also the overhead graphics are pretty boring for a mid years Super Famicon game. Actually the graphics are a fairly simplified version of FF4’s overhead graphics. It doesn’t mean the game isn’t fun but at this point I could see how some people might get bored with the game play.
It’s not a hard game to play and there is little level grinding so you should be able to progress through with a fair amount of ease.
The over world consists of several countries and you don’t traverse it like in most RPG’s. The over world kind of works similarly to that of Illusion of Gaia as you have a limited amount of areas to explore at certain points in the game.
The translation is pretty decent and seems to have caught the feel of the original dialog. It is complete and you should not have any issues playing the game.
If you decide to play this game just keep in mind some of what I said. I liked it but I grew up playing games very similar at this time so it does have some nostalgia.
