Wrecking Crew '98

Super Nintendo

Game Description:

Wrecking Crew ‘98 is a puzzle game for the Super Nintendo.

Translation Description:

A Mario game, never brought over-seas, exclusive to Japan and without an english translation?!

Yes, for as hard as it is to believe, this obscure Mario title never saw the light of day in any country outside of Japan, thanks to the weird distribution method of kiosks back in ‘98, and thanks due to Nintendo’s International Division shutting down sales of all SNES games in ‘97.

This neat little package includes not only one, but 2 games! That’s right, the original Wrecking Crew for the NES was ported and included alongside its sequel, Wrecking Crew ‘98!

Now you can enjoy the flexibility of having both games in one single ROM, now in full english text thanks to the incredible work of the RomHacking community!

The game is fully playable, from start to finish! Finally, a long forgotten game will see the light of day overseas, thanks to hackers doing what Nintendon’t!

  • TO-DO:

The credits sequence still uses the Japanese names for the characters in English alphabet. An upcoming update will be released to translate these names to their official English names and/or change those new characters to proper English “pun-ful” names. Keep an eye for the update!

  • Known bug:

After defeating Spike, once the “It has been a while…” text finished loading, and you press Start, the game crashes out for no reason with a black screen. However, it seems that this particular crash doesn’t happen in any of the other 2 paragraphs of text in this match. Also, this seems to happen with both the text after you beat him to unlock the Secret base and the second time you beat him too.

If someone can help out to fix this issue, please be sure to contact ShadowOne333! Any help will be greatly appreciated!
