Fire Emblem Gaiden

Nintendo Entertainment System

Game Description:

This is the first sequel to the classic Fire Emblem series, and follows the old Nintendo tradition of having the sequels do something entirely different. It adds a world map, removes weapon endurance, and adds towns similar to an old Final Fantasy game. It remains one of the few Fire Emblem games not to have an official English release in some form.

Translation Description:

This is a complete translation of Fire Emblem Gaiden, possibly one of the last in the series needing a full translation.

First note that this is NOT a fix or addendum to j2e’s unfinished translation. I started with a fresh ROM and with the help of Shimizu Hitomi’s translation script, made the text laconic and as close to the original as I could. I reworked the title screen and tried to fit as much as I could using the given text tiles. Everything was hand-coded from a blank slate.

To make things easier for those who already have earlier unfinished versions of the game, I included two other patches besides the pure Japanese ROM patch. Those two patches may be applied to j2e’s and StarWolf’s versions of the game to prevent the need of downloading a fresh Japanese ROM.

Further information is located in the readme. Have fun, and drop me a line if you find something odd. Thanks for playing!
