Wrecking Crew ‘98 is a puzzle game for the Super Nintendo.
A Mario game, never brought over-seas, exclusive to Japan and without an english translation?!
Yes, for as hard as it is to believe, this obscure Mario title never saw the light of day in any country outside of Japan, thanks to the weird distribution method of kiosks back in ‘98, and thanks due to Nintendo’s International Division shutting down sales of all SNES games in ‘97.
This neat little package includes not only one, but 2 games! That’s right, the original Wrecking Crew for the NES was ported and included alongside its sequel, Wrecking Crew ‘98!
Now you can enjoy the flexibility of having both games in one single ROM, now in full english text thanks to the incredible work of the RomHacking community!
The game is fully playable, from start to finish! Finally, a long forgotten game will see the light of day overseas, thanks to hackers doing what Nintendon’t!
PS: As of version 2.0, the remaining bug that made some dialogues crash has been fixed, and the Characters’ names in the credits are now fully localized thanks to the help by minucce!
