The Legend of the Mystical Ninja is an action game for the Super Nintendo.
This patch is for the first Goemon game on the Super Famicom. The text has been translated from Japanese into American English.
In addition to the standard translation patch, there is also an additional patch included, based on the SRAM hack created by Akira76 for FlashPV’s hack for Legend of the Mystical Ninja.
If you would like this functionality, apply this patch to an unpatched Japanese ROM.
This hack essentially takes out the tedium of writing down and entering in the passwords given by the Tourism agencies. Think of it as a password manager.
When you visit an Oedo Tourism agency and ask them to write a journal entry for you, the password will be saved automatically to an .srm file instead of displaying the password on the screen.
With this file, when you select Continue from the title screen and either of the options afterward, the password in the .srm file will be entered and submitted automatically.

User Review Information
Unreadable fontReviewed By: RetroProf on 17 Apr 2021
It’s nice that we have a patch that retranslates the game, thus fixing the censorship from the official localisation, and also adding SRAM to sort out the awful password system.
Unfortunately the font is unreadable. It’s way, waaaaaay too thin.
Clearly whoever tested this only used an emulator.
Playing it on real hardware, even with crisp visuals using an RGB SCART cable, the font is too thin to be readable. It’s a single pixel in width and ends up blurry and very difficult to read on a Standard-Definition CRT TV.
Playing it is very unpleasant as a result. There’s a reason the English font was as thick as it was - it made the font easily readable on all TV screens.
I really want a normal font for this.
