Magna Braban: Henreki no Yusha (”Magna Braban: The Wandering Hero”) is a fantasy JRPG for the Super Famicom. It was never released outside of Japan.
The player controls a simple-minded shepherd boy who dreams of becoming a knight after being saved by a mysterious armored hero one day. He is defeated in his first combat tournament, but befriends other runner-ups in the arena’s infirmary. Eventually, he and his friends are thrust into a world-spanning adventure.
The game uses an innovative combat system in which the player takes on more of a tactical role. The player assigns moves to the characters under their command based on the probability that they will use those moves, and then combat ensues automatically.
This is the completed 2.0 release of KingMike’s Magna Braban English Translation. The 2.0 patch uses the same translation as the 1.0, but the hacking has been redone and should be compatible with more accurate emulators.
Addendum - This is an alternate font patch made by DaMarsMan. This patch applies on top of the English translation.

The Losers “Win”Reviewed By: Vercalos on 19 May 2008
The game starts off with an interesting note. A boy sets off to participate in a tournament, so he can be a knight, but loses spectacularly in the first round.
While getting drunk in a bar with two of the other losers, the Colosseum is attacked and destroyed, and all the rest of the participants are killed. When they return to investigate, they are discovered by the king’s men. Due to the fact that they were the only survivors of the attack, it is assumed they are incredibly skilled, when in truth it was dumb luck that they survived. Still, they don’t admit to this, and thusly are knighted and sent on a quest to save the world.
Thus, the adventure begins.
