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.

ROM / ISO Information:

  • Patch requires a headered rom.

Game Breaking DQ2 Bug

Reviewed By: RxBrad on 12 May 2020

Sadly, almost two decades after this translation was released, there’s still an unpatched game-breaking bug many hours into Dragon Quest II. When you give your sick party member the Leaf of World Tree which is needed to heal them, the game gets stuck in a never-ending dialogue loop. It’s possible to avoid this situation (don’t stay at the Inn in Beran unless you’ve already beaten the game); but if you’re not aware of this bug in the first place, you’ll almost certainly get stuck.

It is apparently possible to remedy this situation by 1) creating a save state just before giving the leaf, 2) exit the emulator and rename the save state so it’ll be used by an untranslated copy of the game, 3) pass the buggy sequence while playing the Japanese version and then make another save state, 4) rename this to be used by the translation version, then 5) load this save state back into the translated version. Depending on the method you’re using to play, this all may be easier said than done.

My “Do Not Recommend” rating applies only to the DQ2 portion of this translation. I had no issues completing Dragon Quest I. Aside from the game breaking bug in DQ2, there were only a couple minor menu glitches that I noticed in that game.
