Xak III is a fine Action RPG for its time and is probably one of the more better RPGs ever released for the PC-Engine/DUO. It’s quite similar in style to Ancient Ys I&II, so Ys fans will find it very enjoyable.
The story begins with Ratok, a descendant of the Duel bloodline, receiving a distress message from Farland Castle… For the longest time, the world has been split into three, Fairy, Demon, and Human, mainly for the purpose of having the demons sealed away… Yet somehow, the demons have found a way to enter the Human World to launch an invasion, beginning with Farland Kingdom. One kingdom after another falls to their terrible reign of terror. Ratok is informed of the situation by a dying man’s last breath, and thus begins his journey to stop the demons from their dreams of conquest…
The game is done! The game is done! Since I don’t have the game itself I can’t review it, but woohoo, the game is done! The patch is in PPF format, which you will need PPF-o-Matic to apply. The file includes instructions on how to rip and patch your legit copy of the game. Eheh.
None of the game’s voiced cutscenes are translated, and the patch doesn’t include a translation script for them either.

Excellent translation but it’s unfortunate the voiced cutscenes aren’t English dubbed or subtitled, especially since the ending cutscenes are quite long.
As for the game itself, I really enjoyed it and it was cool how they incorporated shooter aspects into it. My only gripe with this game is that the walking speed is a bit on the slow side.
Kudos to the translators for allowing me to play my first and probably only Xak game.
Version 1.00 Recommended - Yes
