Tengai Makyou Zero

Super Nintendo

Game Description:

Tengai Makyou Zero is a role playing game made by Hudson for the Super Famicom. It was released in Japan on December 22nd, 1995.

Translation Description:

This patching set will modify Tengai Makyou Zero’s Super Famicom rom, changing the text and graphics from Japanese to American English. The patch is only for the original Tengai Makyou Zero rom. (It cannot be used on the limited edition “Shonen Jump” version.) It includes revisions that correct issues that were in the previous patch release. The set includes:

  • one .ips patch (version 7.0)
  • one .bps patch (version 7.0)
  • .xml and .bml files, which will allow the patched rom to be run on some versions of the bsnes emulator (.xml) or Higan (.bml)
  • a file splitter program, which must be used in order to run the game in Higan

Note that the patched rom may not run on every emulator. There may also be issues with the real time clock, but that is the fault of the emulator, not the patch.

Also a special thanks to Cargodin for her packaging editing and layout work. The digital files for the English manual and packaging materials can be downloaded here.

I’ve been fascinated by the Tengai Makyou series since the 90s, and finally being able to experience one and understand it is such a blessing. I played Tengai 2, Kabuki-Den and Zero back in the days, not knowing a word of Japanese, and actually went pretty far through pure youthful dedication. I also played a myriad of other JRPGs, but the Tengai series always stood apart from their unique Jipang atmospheres and what little I perceived of their rich universes and recurring characters. Now being a grown man in his 40s with a matching schedule, it took me a while to finally get on this wonderful translation, but I finally started tonight and completed the 1st region. The quality of the translation and efforts to integrate Western characters harmoniously in this oh-so-Japanese game is phenomenal, and goes way beyond many professional works. I was smiling the whole way through, reminiscing and at times congratulating my young self for figuring out some of the necessary steps to advance the story.

I really, really hope this translation will help bring attention to the Tengai Makyou series in the West. Those are really important games that went completely overlooked in the West not only because none of them were ever localized but also because of the relatively obscure systems they were originally released on. Tengai Makyou 2 in particular is a behemoth of a game JRPG fans the whole world around should get to experience.

My apologies for this turning into more of a rambling than a review. I wanted to express my deep gratitude to the whole team for such a massive undertaking, and for finally bringing Jipang to the West. 3
