Go for it, Goemon! Depose the Odd Shōgun McGuinness! (Beta version) Released!
02 September 2020 6:37AM EST - Update by Avster
After decades of work, the original Goemon 2 SNES translation project is finally complete!
- All text, signage, and HUD elements localized from Japanese to English.
- Expanded speech bubbles, menu windows, and cutscene text display areas.
- Greater variation of typefaces.
- Legacy bug fixes.
- Completion of post-clear dialogue.
This release aims to faithfully localize the original experience from Japanese to English through preservation of the dialogue’s goofy humor, and implementation of original artwork that retains the appearance and style of the hand-drawn aesthetic exhibited by the game’s many visuals. A single romhacker invested thousands of hours over the course of many years in order to make this translation a reality.
Bonus content includes legacy bug fixes as well as the completion of post-clear material that the original designers could not fully realize due to either time restraints or space limitations. Please see the “relevant link” or readme file for details.
The game itself is easily one of best Super Nintendo releases. The graphics are gorgeous, the scenery and content extremely varied, and the amazing soundtrack features splendorous, traditional melodies played on the koto, and catchy Japanese Doo-wop belted out by a saxophone!
Like so many of Konami’s platformers, it’s no cake walk! But only you can defend Japan’s culture from relentless Westernization!
Take the stage and “Go for it”!
