Kalin no Tsurugi

Family Computer Disk System

Game Description:

Sword of Kalin (or Kalin no Tsurugi if you’re Japanese, (or Karin no Ken if your fucking Gamefaqs)) was Square’s first foray into the world of RPGs on the NES. For a game released in 1987, it isn’t too bad. It has elements of many “staple” RPGs in it’s gameplay (read: derivitive), but that doesn’t make it boring, even by today’s standards.

The game plays kind of like a cross between Ultima, Ys, and Dragon Warrior. Enemy encounters and exploration occur much as they do in Ultima: you explore the world one screen at a time, and running into an enemy takes you to a battlefield. On the battle field, you run into things kamikaze style, a la Ys. The menu interface is very much like Dragon Warrior.

It makes for an interesting blend and will certainly give you something to do when you’re feeling bored very “1987″ on a given evening, and don’t feel like beating Dragon Warrior for the 27th time.

Translation Description:

Well, most everything is translated and bug-free, excepting a minor issue that occurs sometimes when you use way more healing potions than you would ever need to.

Filler and satsu handled the scripts, and KingMike handled the translation. Congratulations to KingMike! This translation marks the four-year anniversary of his group.

Note that the game does require the use of a DOS program included in the ZIP archive. The utility is required to properly expand the disk image files before the translation can be applied.
