Okay, first off, Wow. I love how this is marketed as merely a re-translation. It so so much more than that and frankly i’m torn to whether or not this should be marketed as a full enhancement hack AND a re-translation. Ryusei and D4S really went all out on this and it shows. From renaming many characters, locations, spells, items and monsters for more consistency throughout the series, to improved text boxes, font width and font in general to an improved intro sequence and vastly elaborated script.
I only have a few gripes going through but they’re nothing in comparison to the long long list of pros. Personally I would’ve kept Tunlan named Tunlan for consistency with Breath of Fire 1 since it is almost the exact same place. I might have slightly toned down the raunchiness but it’s not too bad, just a slight contrast from the original that likely comes with elaboration.
This is undoubtedly the best version of Breath of Fire II available. It delves deeper into characters and dialogue which helps players engage and immerse further into a really charming world. I should point out also that I played with Maeson’s 2x EXP & Zenny hack to make it slightly less grindy but overall a solid job. 9/10 work for sure. Thanks to all that worked on this 3
