Esper Dream 2: Aratanaru Tatakai (Esper Dream 2: A New Battle) is a sequel to Esper Dream for the Famicom Disk System. Mamoru is a young bookworm who finds out that sinister beings are threatening the world of books. He sets out to restore the books’ worlds.
Esper Dream 2 is a nifty action/rpg by Konami. The five rings of the Book Worlds have been stolen, and it’s up to our ESP-endowed bookworm hero to find them and save the day! The game itself is fairly neat. You visit a number of different worlds, each symbolized by a bookcase, each very different from the last. A battle sequence is initiated when you come in contact with enemies, which are symbolized by little walking pawprints - you’re then taken to a small arena where you have to destroy your enemies, Zelda-style. It’s pretty fun!
There are no known issues with the patch, so enjoy!

User Review Information
Another good translation of an interesting Famicom exclusiveReviewed By: InAnotherCastle on 30 Nov 2021
This is another quality translation by Aeon Genesis.
The tone of this game is slightly less serious than, say, Lagrange Point, and the translation reflects that.
The game itself was for me mostly interested for the sound, how it pushes the NES hardware, and for being a Japanese exclusive.
Being an RPG I obviously wouldn’t have bothered to even try it without an English patch, but it’s growing on me :-)
Version 1.0 Recommended - Yes
