Mystic Ark is a fairly unusual RPG from Enix and the people who brought us The 7th Saga (”Elnard” as it was known in Japan). The gameplay liberally mixes elements of old-school adventure and puzzle games into the RPG formula, and the story tosses out the concept of an overarching plot in favor of seven separate vignettes.
Contrary to my earlier beliefs, Mystic Ark is definitely not a true sequel to 7th Saga, although there are many similarities in the stylistics and characters. 7th Saga was a sprawling RPG directed toward vanquishing an ultimate foe, involving time travel. Mystic Ark appears to be a series of separate sketches that can be concluded in favor of several characters interacting with the main fighter, Remeer. Looks like a super fun game, as the dialogue I’ve seen so far promises a rollicking adventure.
As for this patch, it requires a headerless, de-interleaved ROM. CRC32 value FEB80589.
Today we at D-D released Mystic Ark v 1.1. We are pleased to announce it works universally both on copiers and emulators, including those with accurate coding in mind. For this reason we are recommending BSNES for this release, although one is free to use any of the other excellent SNES emulators available to play our release. Please consider this fine piece our Christmas gift for the community and expect more great things from D-D in the future.
