Project RE-Quest, An NES Classic Gets a Modern Makeover!

29 November 2018 7:33PM EST - Update by Choppasmith

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

It’s been almost 30 years since the original Dragon Warrior was released for the NES in North America. But, what if Dragon Warrior never existed and the game was localized as Dragon Quest in English like it is now from the start? By porting the script from Square-Enix’s official mobile release, that dream is now reality. With rom expansion, the script is now double in size. All the monster, spell, and item names are updated to modern localization standards. There’s even a new logo done with the authentic font. Whether you’ve played Dragon Quest Builders or you’re used to modern Dragon Quest releases, you’ll feel right at home here now.

The screens below showcase what a difference the dialog makes. Left is the original, and on the right is the new script! For more comparisons and the latest updates, click the Relevant Link.

Phantasy Star Generation 4 - A Relocalization & Retranslation

25 October 2018 7:34AM EST - Update by GhaleonUnlimited

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

One of the 16-bit era’s hall-of-fame RPGs has received a Phantastic makeover!

Phantasy Star IV was one of SEGA’s best RPGs, with great story, character interaction, and gameplay, but the English translation was merely adequate. It suffered from awkward, often laughable dialog, as well as many mistranslations that were meant to tie the 2,000-year-long story of the previous three games together.

Among the goofiest translation choices:

  • Misnaming the planet “Palma” to “Parma”, which is a suburb of Cleveland.
  • The main character yelling “I’m not going to fight for no mission!” at a pivotal story moment.
  • An emotional goodbye between bros punctuated with “You silly!”

And so on.

The patch author, Chris Hatala – “GhaleonUnlimited”, was surprised that a Phantasy Star IV hack fixing the series references was never tackled, so he decided to learn what ROM hacking was all about.

Thanks to the help and support of two other fan-project leaders – vivify93 and lory1990 on RHDN – Chris was able to completely rewrite the script where needed and inject it into the game, along with adding bugfixes, fixing censorship, and allowing for player preference in which script they wanted to play.

Also, thanks to their help and also great resources online, the original Japanese was used to best match the original creators’ intentions.

Being a big fan of the breezy dialog and whimsical nature of the Lunars on SEGA CD, Chris aimed to add a naturalness to the dialog, as well as accentuate each character’s personality.

He also added humor that was appropriate to the established universe and tone of the game, because much of the game’s funnier moments were lost in translation or were simply missed opportunities in the original script.

Now that English fan translations of the brilliant SEGA AGES remakes of Phantasy Star 1 and 2 have been completed, this project was meant to link both both the classic translations together but also these new exciting developments in the Phantasy Star world.

At version 1_48, most of the text errors and bugs should be fixed. The author hopes that this relocalization will give 16-bit RPG fans who missed out on PSIV – as well as long-time PS fans – a reason to revisit one of classic gaming’s best RPG story arcs!

Donkey Kong Country - Expert Edition Released

04 October 2018 7:18AM EST - Update by Q

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Nearly 25 years ago, Donkey Kong Country was released to the world, and it quickly won over gamers with its pre-rendered CGI graphics, became one of the best-selling Super NES games of all time, and spawned numerous sequels. And while its graphics might not have the wow factor they had in 1994, Donkey Kong Country’s gameplay holds up to this day.

While Donkey Kong Country is known for being difficult, many people have mastered it. Are you one of them? Donkey Kong Country - Expert Edition will put your platforming skills to the test. It removes the DK Barrels (which give you your characters back if you lose them) and Star Barrels (which act as checkpoints), so you can only take two hits in each stage before losing a life and being forced to start over from the beginning.

Additionally, all the Warp Barrels have been removed. If you think you’re just going to skip over Mine Cart Carnage, Stop & Go Station, or any other stage in the game, think again.

EarthBound Zero Without the Frustration

04 October 2018 7:17AM EST - Update by Q

ROM Hacks News - RHDN Project Page

Since the NES EarthBound Zero prototype was leaked two decades ago, many gamers have been frustrated by the game’s tedious pacing. EarthBound Zero (known as Mother in Japan), the famed prequel to EarthBound for the Super NES, is an old school RPG known for it’s high random encounter rate and for requiring large amounts of grinding to level up and purchase equipment, which has discouraged many potential fans from completing the game.

This problem was fixed in the fan translation of the GBA version of Mother, which added an item called the “Easy Ring.” Now, you can enjoy the benefits of the Easy Ring while playing the original NES version of EarthBound Zero. Q’s Gameplay Balance hack—which is included in his EarthBound Zero Tweaks collection—quadruples earned experience, doubles earned money, and significantly reduces random encounter rates, just like the Easy Ring mod.

If you enjoyed EarthBound for the SNES and Mother 3 for the GBA but could never get into the first game, then apply this patch, and give it another chance.
