Hi, so I was thinking this would be an easy one to answer, but I'm surprised that I can't seem to find (anywhere, not just here) any romhacks that either:
A) Translate the original Japanese "Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari" into English.
B)Restore the graphics/look of the original game to "River City Ransom".
I would think the second would be quite (comparatively) easy by the standards of some of the amazing romhacks I've seen, but a translation of the original game (keeping the Japanese names for Kunio, etc.) would be even better but a rather large project, I expect. That said, games like the Final Fantasy series or Chrono Trigger have *multiple* translations and re-translations, which must have taken years to do!
So maybe it's just a lack of interest? I was surprised mainly (and keep thinking I've just missed an obvious link to this hack) because RCR is one of the most popular/well-known NES games around... heck, we're getting sequels to it to this day.
Can someone maybe let me know if there *is* such a romhack somewhere (even unfinished)?
I know almost nothing about romhacking myself, or I'd give it a try myself! Heck, if someone gave me a few pointers, I'd see if I could try to replace a few sprites at least, but so far my efforts to figure out NES graphics hacking have met with dismal failure.
