Hack of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars


This hack was originally intended to replace Culex’s dialogue to match what he says in Japanese for private use. However, it was soon discovered that Super Mario RPG’s text had enough small translation errors, typos and out-of-nowhere capitalization to warrant a close look through every line of dialogue and change what errors could be found. Changes include:

  • Mistranslated monster names inconsistently fixed (Goby is now Cheep Cheep, Shy Away is now Beezo, but Culex remains unchanged, etc.)
  • Psychopath quotes which were originally (contemporary) Japanese pop culture references have been replaced with (recent, ill-fitting) American pop culture references.
  • Final Fantasy references lost/removed in translation have been restored. (along with a few extra unnecessarily added)
  • Typos and unnecessary capitalizations fixed, often causing a loss of emphasis in tone. (i.e. “It’s time for MY wedding!” - “It’s time for my wedding!”)
  • Various phrases (most notably puns CoolCatBomberMan disliked) rewritten with no regard for the original JP text. (i.e. “It’s a chain reaction!” became “Not my chain!” JP Bowser instead screams “Don’t let go!”)
  • As of v1.1, mistranslated item names (really, only one: Quartz Charm - Crystal Charm) plus a certain location’s name (Yo’ster Island - Yoshi’s Island. Other places that needed a name change, such as Mushroom Kingdom/Castle and Moleville/Ducati, were unchanged) have been corrected.

This hack was made possible by giangurgolo & Omega’s Lazy Shell editor. No header required for patching.
