Thanks for your posts, Auryn and EarlJ.
@bLind: Here's what I have in my notes. All translations are from Google Translate, and should be taken with a big grain of salt.
The headings at the top of the screen:
left side - 銭 - money
right side - 体力 - stamina
In the first town:
Shop #1: いらっしゃいませ. 何かお求めになりますか? (May I help you? Would you like to purchase something?)
If you choose no (いいえ):
ありがとうございました! (Thank you!)
If you choose yes (はい), then the shopkeeper asks 何かお求めになりますか? again, and your options are:
火 の 槍 - spear of fire
狼風の弓 - wind bow of wolf
昇龍剣 - rising dragon sword?
鎖帷子 - something else, not sure what
I didn't try to work it all out, but here are some "can't buy this" responses I got at various times:
お金が足りませんよ! - I don't have enough money!
あなたには装備できませんのでお売りできません. - not sure, something about selling equipment
もうお持ちになっ ていますよ! - something about having more?
I didn't check the shop in the third house carefully, but if you don't buy anything, the guy says:
またご利用下さい. (Is this "please come again"?)
The last house in the first town says:
この辺りの奴らはみんな信長の手先じゃ. - Well, guys in this area are all minions of Nobunaga.
Finally, as you're leaving town, the sign overhead says:
出口 - Exit
Meanwhile, there's all the text from the introduction, which is linked at the website I posted earlier. I might edit my post to add those in a bit...
OK, here's the full introduction to the game, as gleaned from a combination of the two websites I posted earlier. Again, all translations are very crude renditions from Google Translate, and await a qualified translator.
(When Sengoku, Nobunaga those in power had suffered heavy taxes and the people in the war.)
(One day, barbarian ship was wrecked vessels on the coast of a country of Hao has been shipwrecked.
3-year-old boy John and crew were injured in the ship that it had survived.)
忍者 「影刃」 は2人を助けたが、
("Ha" shadow ninja, but to help two people, John "was attacked by Nobunaga". Leaving those words and dead.)
(12 years since it was brought up as a shadow blade "Takeshi thunder" Ninja children.)
(Shadow blade takes a year, he called the Lightning Takeshi death enlightenment.
"I thunder Takeshi, Nobunaga defeated me that afflicts the people."
"A collection of three young men who work together to that")
(Trying to introduce.
Master of the spear right flat
Master of the bow Gen No.
Nobunaga next, defeat the "corps of the Wind" combined force with everyone.)
(Hao country of the first chapter)
(The people of this country have been plagued by Nobunaga's minions.)
Please defeat all the enemy.)
