    Corrected release date. Just checked Wikipedia, although it's not always a reliable source. The game wasn't released to the arcades until October 1986, and both the FDS and NES release dates were in 1988!

Royal Stone

Sega Game Gear

Game Description:

Released late into the life of the Game Gear, this has got to be one of the prettiest titles for the console I’ve played. The graphics and sound are up to par with many SNES and Mega Drive titles, which impressed me right off the bat. Under the hood, it’s a mostly normal strategy RPG with a few tweaks, like a regular RPG-influenced battle system and elemental attributes that affect your strength. First impressions of the story give the impression that this could be an interesting, if not to mention fun, title.

This is the sequel to Crystal Warriors, which saw a US release.

Translation Description:

This translation is complete. There’s one issue that occurs on some emulators, and there are several issues with the game itself, so please make sure you read the readme.

User Review Information

Possibly the best SRPG for the Game Gear!

Reviewed By: cccmar on 13 Jan 2020

Hear me out… this game is much better than Crystal Warriors, which it is a semi-sequel of. In reality though, these games mostly just have a rather superficial connection. Royal Stone boasts much better graphics, OST and an actual story beyond just “kill the evil dude”. I particularly liked the town sections, with all the character banter and different things you could do besides shopping.

As for the translation, it’s very good as well. I did notice that sometimes Cocotte is called Coqotte, or something like that (might be good to revise this in the future). Still, the amount of effort put into it really shows, and it’s very helpful when playing the game. I can easily recommend it, and since this game is one of the best ones for the system as well in my opinion, it’s an easy decision to make.
