Last Bible III English Translation Released

14 April 2018 7:40AM EST - Update by ddstranslation

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

Last Bible III for the SNES has finally been translated from Japanese into American English and the patch is now available for download.

The Last Bible series of games began on the Game Boy as a spinoff of the Megami Tensei franchise. Instead of the usual near-future apocalypse setting, Last Bible’s setting is closer to light medieval fantasy. Combat is turn-based, and retains the Megaten standard of being able to persuade enemies to join your team, as well as fusing them together to create stronger beasts.

The English translation project started in April 2017 at the request of Tom, the same person who translated the Game Boy Color version of Last Bible II. DDSTranslation did all of the hacking, and FlashPV was in charge of the graphics work and font.

Now after a year of coding, translating, and testing, the final result can be enjoyed by all Megaten and JRPG fans. (Despite what you may have heard online, and despite the seemingly childish cover art, this game is not intended for children.)

Sailor Moon (Mega Drive) English Translation Released

14 April 2018 1:32AM EST - Update by Supper

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

The Dark Kingdom has been resurrected! In the name of the moon, go beat everyone up.

The Genesis/Mega Drive version of the 1993 Sailor Moon beat-’em-up has been translated into English, featuring a translation by Eien Ni Hen and hacking by Supper. As one of the five Sailor Senshi of love and justice, players punch, kick, and suplex (hey, it’s a beat-’em-up) through hordes of youma to reach the enemy’s stronghold and protect the earth.

Though nominally a port of the SNES game, this version came out later and is actually considerably enhanced over the original, with expanded stages, heavily tweaked gameplay, new music, and an actual plot. It’s well worth a look for both Sailor Moon and beat-’em-up fans.

This project was originally kicked off without a translator, so major thanks to Filler for agreeing to pick it up and ultimately arranging for Eien Ni Hen to handle things.

DvD Translations Simultaneously Releases Two Translations

11 April 2018 3:32AM EST - Update by DvD

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

3 years since their last release, DvD Translations has released two translations on the same day:

The first is historically significant as it is the last RPG Square made before Final Fantasy. Although associated and credited with projects in the past, this is NintendoComplete’s first major translation with hacking by DvD and translation assistance by aishsha. The game supports 3 separate fonts which are user selectable at any time in the game by simply pressing Up or Down while holding down the Select button. Up independently cycles the menu fonts while Down cycles the body text fonts. If you get tired of looking at one font, you can always pick a different one!

The latter is the second game in the TwinBee shooter series. It was released in the US as Stinger, but Konami removed the simultaneous 3rd player support as there was no multi-tap available at the time for the NES. This translation restores that support by hacking the game to support the NES Satellite/4 Score along with a complete English title screen and explosion sprites, and the two missing screens of dialog which Konami removed. All hacking was done by DvD with a translation by aishsha.

More information on both games can be found at https://dvdtranslations.eludevisibility.org.

Castlevania HD Pack for Mesen NES emulator

06 April 2018 7:50AM EST - Update by kya

Other News

Last year’s Castlevania 30th Anniversary facelift patch was recently updated. It is now available in a form of an HD pack for the Mesen NES emulator.

This HD Pack applies to a NES version of Castlevania (USA non-RevA ROM only) and replaces its graphics with the higher resolution graphics from Castlevania for mobile phones. It also replaces the game’s music tracks with ogg files.

In order to use this pack you have to download the latest Mesen emulator (0.9.5 and up) from

http://www.mesen.ca

Then you should unzip and run it. Mesen will greet you with a configuration window. Pay attention what folder will be specified there as a “Data Storage Location”.

You need to place the contents of this HDPack zip file into the [Data Storage Location]/HdPacks/[CastlevaniaRomName] folder (e.g “HdPacks/Castlevania (USA)” if you are loading “Castlevania (USA).nes”)

After extracting the HDPack you should enable HDPacks in Mesen. Tick the box at Options-Video-Enable HDNes HD Packs, and then load the ROM into Mesen.

Fire Emblem Self Randomising ROM

04 April 2018 9:53PM EST - Update by Darrman

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Video game randomisers are quite popular. With them, one can get a fresh experience playing their favourite games. Many games have randomisers, and the Game Boy Advance Fire Emblem games were no exception. However, circleseverywhere decided to dispense with the randomiser executable and just create a hack that randomises itself.

The Fire Emblem Self Randomising ROM is exactly what it says on the tin. Apply the patch, input your desired settings when starting a new game, and you have a randomised Sacred Stones ROM, no executable required. This makes the process of randomising the game much simpler for people using mobile devices; the game itself is the randomiser.

Many things can be randomised, ranging from character growth rates to what items are given in what places to what music plays on the maps. Some quality of life improvements such as speeding up animations and having health bars display on the map are also included.

A word of warning: this is a Sacred Stones hack, and is not compatible with Blazing Sword. Other than that, randomise in game to your heart’s content.

Dynamic-Designs Releases G.O.D. in English!

02 April 2018 7:38AM EST - Update by Draken

Translations News - RHDN Project Page

After roughly 4 years of production at Dynamic-Designs, G.O.D. is ready for the world to play! It may have taken longer than planned and may have been fraught with slowdowns, but this great, classic RPG has finally attained the level of attention, detail, and polish it so deserves.

G.O.D. (Growth or Devolution) is a classic SNES RPG, and before today, was one of the last great SNES RPGs left untranslated. Avoiding as many spoilers as possible, this game follows the story of Gen as he travels the world, using his special abilities to put a stop to the alien menace plaguing the planet.

So what are you waiting for? Pick up the patch today and start enjoying a game that has remained in obscurity for over 20 years!
