If you hate this you hate Ys.
Anyways fun game, great translation and I like the resolution. I estimate its a 1989-1990 release. Also the grinding is not bad at all so far. You level up rather quickly.
uh oh, trouble in paradise. After the first boss, the next two towns are broken. Nobody talks to you and you are screwed, not even the shops respond to you to sell you new weapons n stuff. PLZ FIX I WUZ HAVIN FUNN
maybe its NESTOPIA?
