Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen

Nintendo DS

Game Description:

Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen is an role playing game for the Nintendo DS.

Translation Description:

This is one of two patches for Dragon Quest IV DS that mods in the DS english translation of the main story content for Dragon Quest IV (DS version), but more importantly, also mods in the mobile port translation for party chat.

The localized version of Dragon Quest IV on DS omitted Party Chat as an option from it, which sadly omits most of the character interactions and fleshing out of the cast from the story. However, this patch restores the party chat option into the game, and ports all of the translated text from it from the mobile phone version of the game into the DS version! If you want the complete story of the game that does the characters justice, this is the version you want to play.

Since this is an XDelta patch, even the officially localized version of Dragon Quest IV which has party chat disabled will re-enable party chat upon applying this patch.

IMPORTANT NOTE: This version of the patch is meant to be used specifically to overwrite the English version/ROM of the game. Do NOT use this patch on the Japanese ROM.

An absolute godsend

It’s fantastic to finally have party chat on the DS version of DQ IV. We’ll no longer have to awkwardly specify to new players that they’ll need to play the mobile version for the full experience.

Granted, the mobile version isn’t horrible, but I’m not a fan of it’s touch control layout. It’s optimized around allowing play with just one thumb, rather then actually feeling good to control. The layout is awkward enough and characters’ walking speed is fast enough that it’s often a challenge to focus on the thing you’re trying to check/talk to, especially if it’s a moving NPC.

So this patch finally lets me, and no doubt countless others, play the definitive version of DQ IV on the platform they prefer. Absolutely wonderful.
