Following the Makai Tree incident and the departure of Ail and An, the five Sailor Senshi enjoy a newfound period of peace. With no enemies to fight, they return to their colorful, but ordinary, daily lives. But one night, Luna and Artemis sense several mysterious shadows releasing dark energy – energy like that of a Youma. Could the vanquished Dark Kingdom have somehow returned? The Senshi have dark secrets to uncover, and enemies old and new alike to face…if they can ever stop goofing off at the arcade.
Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon (Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon) for the PC-Engine Super CD-ROM² system is a 1994 visual novel based on the famous manga/anime franchise of the same name. A self-described “adventure-style digital comic”, it features an original story set between the Makai Tree and Black Moon arcs of the Sailor Moon R anime. All five of the original Sailor Senshi are available as playable characters, each with their own story; their five separate plots overlap to form a larger whole. It features extensive voice acting from the cast of the TV show, as well as two original vocal songs.
This is a complete English translation of Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon for the PC-Engine Super CD-ROM² system. In addition to translating all text, it adds subtitles to voice-only scenes and adds both transliterated and translated subtitles to vocal songs. As a bonus, it also includes a large gallery of unused content found during production of the translation, accessible in-game through a cheat code (see the readme).
Two editions of the patch are included in the download: the standard edition, and an “honorifics” edition which retains Japanese honorifics and some terminology that Sailor Moon fans are expected to be familiar with, such as “Senshi” and “Shitennou”.
Several different options are provided for patching the disc image; check the readme for details. The information in the ROM/ISO Information section applies to the standard Redump disc image, but the patching process is designed to support any valid BIN+CUE, IMG+CUE, ISO+WAV+CUE, or “split BIN”+CUE disc image.
