Getsu Fuuma Den

Nintendo Entertainment System

Game Description:

I thought I was good at side-scrolling games until I played this. Anyone who thinks they kick ass at side-scrollers needs to play this and be forever humbled. It’s hard. Incredibly hard. This game is difficult to the point of Unfair. However, it still manages to be fun to play. There’s a basic overworld, which consists of your Hero moving along predetermined paths to event squares, where you can have some fortune-telling old hag laugh at you, or buy items from a guy with Tourette’s Syndrome, or go and get your ass kicked in one of the side-scrolling stages. I wish I knew what the items did, but I’m too lazy to find out. Well anyway, I guess this is your standard NES game in the same vein as Castlevania - you’ll die frequently, hurl your controller at the TV and swear to never play the game again, and then you’ll just try again the next day.

Translation Description:

This is an updated version of the translation patch for Getsu Fuuma Den (or The Legend of Fuma, as we chose to call it due to Konami’s official name). We really like this game, which is why we wanted to give it a bit of a facelift. While the old translation by RPGe does its job quite well (and inspired us to go with our own take), it suffers from the limitations of early fan-translations. Our translation was expanded to fit in more script, makes use of both lines in text boxes, and it also translates major graphics (the “death” kanji when you fall into a pit, and the credits). Our goal was to give the game a “second wind” of sorts, and make more people familiar with it. So, please enjoy, and if you notice any issues, by all means be sure to contact us!
