BS The Legend of Zelda: Ancient Stone Tablets
|Patching Information||No-Header (SNES)|
|Game Date||April 1997|

The Ancient Stone Tablets is a BS-X game based on A Link to the Past. The story takes place after the events of ALttP and you play as either the male or female BS-X mascots. You have a set amount of time to play each episode of the game and there are numerous little events that take place at certain times. These could range from the opportunity to engage in certain story events, weather patterns, temporary bonuses or power-up, etc. There are also a handful of very fun mini-games that were not featured in the original ALttP.
Some of the early dungeon designs are a little bland but otherwise this is sure to be a treat for any ALttP fan as it is built from the same engine and plays like an extension of that game.
A translation long due…
This patch translates the game BS The Legend of Zelda Kodai no Sekiban into English. The sublines on the bottom of the screen are also translated. There is one ips file for each week. Make sure you apply them to the correct week or the menu will be messed up. Make sure you back up your original image before applying this patch. We take no responsibility for any damage caused by using this patch.
- IMPORTANT ABOUT SAVE RAMS AND SAVE STATES*
This patch will work perfectly with your previous srm files, but it will not work with previously taken save states.
As soon you have finished a week, rename your sram to the name of the next week’s rom to carry on all your progress. E.g., Week 1 sram name is bszelda_ast1.srm. As soon you have finished this rom and want to start over with week 2, rename this file to bszelda_ast2.srm.

User Review Information
A very unique Zelda experienceReviewed By: Ok Impala! on 17 Feb 2021
Zelda: Ancient Stone Tablets might be the most unknown Zelda game ever released. As a Japan only release for the obscure SNES Satellaview, this game never got the credits it deserves. Zelda: Ancient Stone Tablets uses the tile set and world of A Link to the Past, but gives it a completely new spin. The goal is to finish 8 new dungeons in 4 hours and try to get the highest score possible. Meanwhile you’re given hints in real-time through a live audio broadcast. It’s a unique Zelda experience that’s highly recommended!
The English translation is very polished and every little thing is translated. Only small critique I have is that it seems to be a pretty literal translation. Therefore you’ll see the sentence “is that so?” a lot in the audio dialogue. But overall, the translation is very professional, with no grammar errors or technical issues. After the release of this English patch on RHDN, an English dub for the audio was created. Since it’s too big for RHDN, you can find those files on: http://bszelda.zeldalegends.net/sekibanfiles.shtml
Zelda: Ancient Stone Tablets was long thought to be lost. Make sure you don’t miss this little gem, now it’s available in all it’s glory!
