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 patch translates Dragon Warrior for NES from English to Spanish. In the process, it adds all the necessary symbols from Spanish language. It must be applied over the American version of the ROM (Rev 1), not the Japanese one.
This translation and ROMhacking work has been done from scratch by Rod Merida, with script revision and corrections made by Damniel Vyp; both of them from Crackowia translation group.
