The first in the long running series of games, beginning with the Nintendo Entertainment System and spanning the SNES, the Gameboy, and even the Playstation, as well as having mini-spinoffs which are a lot like Pokémon.
This, the original Dragon Warrior, starts you off in the throne room of the King of Tantegel Castle. He names you the descendant of the legendary Erdrick, who once possessed the Ball of Light. It has been stolen, the Dragonlord’s minions roam the lands, and the Princess is kidnapped. You, the descendant of the legendary hero, must confront evil and save the continent.
This game features a single-character interface with single-monster battles. Do not think this means it will be easy…you can easily go in over your head. You must make sure to buy equipment, as for some odd reason, trained descendants of heroes do not have any starting equipment.
This game was once released by Nintendo along with subscriptions of Nintendo Power magazine, so it is not extremely rare. However, it is a good place to start learning of the series, as it began everything. Also, the rest of them are considered hard to find. If you get one, consider yourself lucky!
This is a fully playable, 100% translated version of Dragon Warrior in Brazilian Portuguese. There are no plans on adding diacritics so far, as it’s been tried to translate the game without using them so it wouldn’t feel weird to read it as such.
This is a translation that doesn’t have the enemies’ names, nor those of items, translated. That comes from the author’s personal preference (and that of several Brazilian players) who find it strange to play the game with 100% translated stuff. As Brazilian players grew up reading terms such as Healing Herb or Silver Sword, it’s a consensus that it’s just plain weird to read them otherwise.
As per regular standards, this is the first version, called Keiko Edition. Further updates may come - but not so soon.
Thanks to KeikoReturns for the inspiration and to q8fft for the script insertor.
