Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon: Another Story

Super Nintendo

Game Description:

Yep, it’s a Sailor Moon RPG. Pretty nifty, huh? The game is pretty standard I guess; there are some pretty cool things in it though, like the nifty techniques and stuff. However, it is pretty hard to make sense of things (especially in the beginning) without a good knowledge of the series; the game continues the unfortunate “You’d damn well better know who everyone is before you play, cause no way in hell are we going to explain it to you” syndrome of anime gaming. Of course, this game isn’t meant for just your average Joe guy, it’s meant for people who like Sailor Moon. So, uhh, there you go.

Translation Description:

Sorry Toonami-lovers, but this translation heavily relies on knowledge of the fan-subtitled Sailor Moon anime, and fansub anime in general. Names will be left as-is (expect to see Usagi instead of Serena), some items are left untouched (like Ginzuishou instead of Silver Moon Crystal…what), and even some general words are left alone (does someone seriously say “sonna” as an expression of disbelief? That is pretty inscrutable for more casual fans).

As for the translation itself, FuSoYa has done a superb job, even adding new code for a variable width font which looks really nice. Even the signs have been translated, which is a really nice touch.

ADDENDUM: Make sure you apply mteam’s fix (link) over the English translation, which makes the intro work as intended in modern emulators.

ADDENDUM: Optionally, you can use vivify93’s patch (link) that changes a lot of enemy names and a few technique names to be more accurate. This patch already includes mteam’s intro fix, so no need to double up.
