Soul Blazer

Super Nintendo

Game Description:

Soul Blazer is an action role playing game for the Super Nintendo.

Translation Description:

Steppolo Steppi made a retranslation of Soul Blazer, a true classic by Quintet, as he thought that Enix’s translation was flawed. Now you can enjoy the first chapter of the Heaven and Earth trilogy uncensored! However, the spells and equipment had some liberties taken, as the translator was unable to acquire a literal translation of their names.

Appreciate the effort, but unsure why it's in this state

Reviewed By: GhaleonUnlimited on 25 Jun 2019

After doing my own full script rewrite, I can definitely understand how impossible it is to catch every grammar error and typo in an entire script.

I was pretty excited about this project, but after playing through the first few areas, I’m not sure it’s going to improve.

A lot of the dialog is oddly phrased and pretty awkward – it’s basically written as you’d expect a low-quality 16-bit RPG translation in the ’90s to be.

What’s really strange is there are lines that I think are from the original, yet have very basic misspellings here.

Overall, I think the author’s intent was a more accurate translation from the Japanese. It very well might be more literal with the item/weapon names, but I’m surprised the author hasn’t seemed interested in shoring up the misspellings and writing quality, which is pretty bad.

At least for me, I’m sure what the novelty or value proposition is in this patch.

I’m glad the author is giving Enix some love. I hope they can revisit this or accept some help (I’ve tried to contact them myself) to bring it up to spec! I would love to play and recommend a future version of this.
