Big fan of this game and series so I was eager to give this a shot.

Basically this is a retranslation. The big focus was changing all the instances of Kid Ying and Dr. Yang to Goemon and Ebisu respectively. The levels are each given new titles as well. Aside from that, I didnt notice too many script differences.

There have been a few graphical updates too, like changing the logo on the title screen and the font has been changed though I didn’t really have a problem with the old font. It does look pretty nice.

Some of the censorship has been removed. The Ebisumaru farting show or whatever makes it back in but the strip show seems to be missing. The final level seems to be missing it’s title (was that in the original?)

I played through the whole thing in one sitting so I didn’t get a chance to try the save file.

Overall, this is a pretty good hack. An updated version that restored the missing scene and a more robust script rewrite would be pretty cool to see though.

Version 1.00 Recommended - Yes
