Dragon Quest II: Delocalized

Hack of Dragon Warrior II

Description:

Dragon Quest II: Delocalized is a project aimed at providing English speakers with the opportunity to play the second Dragon Quest game in a form that looks and reads like the Japanese Famicom version, while still retaining key improvements from the North American release.

The script has been entirely retranslated in a contemporary English style that matches that of the Famicom version. Work was initially based on a translation document by x_loto. Over several stages of improvement, the script has been thoroughly revised in collaboration with primary translator, nejimakipiyo and native Japanese speaking consultant, Dattebayo. The authors believe that the resulting script is more accurate than any other English translation, while still conveying fluid, natural language.

The graphics of Dragon Quest II have been restored to that of the Japanese version, with changes including priest sprite, church crosses, coffins for dead party members and a white floor cross in the Temple of Hargon.

  • Note - Version 1.11 was a major update with improvements to over 80 percent of the text. Additional embellishments in the original localization have been removed, and missing Japanese text has been restored. Countless other error corrections and refinements were made.
  • As of version 1.15, optional patches are included to revert spells to either official naming system.

Please submit any issues or feedback on this combined project thread:thread.
