[SNES] Super Shell Monster Story I aka Daikaijyuu Monogatari I translation released
17 May 2015 6:32AM EST - Update by taskforce
Dynamic-Designs has released a completed translation patch for Super Shell Monster Story 1 aka Daikaijyuu Monogatari. Super Shell Monsters Story is a classic turn-based RPG similar in style to the SNES Dragon Quest games with a style that is a bit more on the humorous side.
In a mystical world far away, a legendary race of beings called Shell Monsters dwell. These are not those sorts of monsters that threaten other life forms, though. Just the opposite. Instead, these special “people” live extremely long lives and enjoy mysterious powers that certain heroes – sometimes reluctantly – use against tyrants that threaten the peaceful existence of their World of Shelldorado!
Such a threat has arisen recently – a fiend known as “Fat Badger – and Elder Hermit Crab of Shell Village is about to invoke an ancient chant that elders must memorize, to summon a human hero from another world that is quite distant from Shelldorado. Soon, the perplexed would-be hero, whether he wants to or not, will embark on an ocean voyage in the flimsy Puka shell craft, hoping to locate his madcap shell hero companions who somehow seem to be drifting far afield from their assigned duties!
Special thanks to Byuu, DaMarsman, and Gerb for providing the original materials and early work that our patch is based on.
