Arabian Nights: Sabaku no Seirei Ou is a role playing game for the Super Nintendo.
Arabian Nights (AN) is a Japan-exclusive RPG for the Super Famicom, developed by a small studio called Pandora Box. The game was published in 1996 by Takara and features, as the name strongly suggests, an all-Arabian theme revolving around Djinns.
Once upon a time, Shukran, a young, good-natured girl who lost her parents, finds a special ring lying on the ground. As it soon turns out the ring actually houses Ifrit, the King of the Djinns. He has been sealed away by his former master just before his demise, because hot-tempered Ifrit would have gone after his master’s murderer even in spite of his own insufficient strength. However, if Ifrit accomplishes fulfilling a thousand wishes, he will again be a free man, or rather Djinn. As coincidence may, Shukran’s wish will actually be the 1000th, however - altruistic as she is - the young woman wants Ifrit to bring peace upon the world! Thus, the two embark on their quest to make that wish come true together, as Ifrit can’t stray from his new master’s side.
The game itself is extraordinarily charming, boasting beautiful graphics and sympathetic characters. However, probably due to the fact that the small developer was publishing many games simultaneously around that time, and that the console neared the end of its life span, AN most likely was very rushed at the end. That’s why a lot of aspects of the game feel unfinished; had the developers had enough time, it could easily have become one of the console’s greatest classics.
As for the translation, we tried our best to allow for a pleasing experience in English and make as few compromises as possible. Look at the screenshots for a first impression and read the readme or visit the following sites for details:
