    Hmm. Are there any differences whatsoever between this one and the E release?
    It doesn't seem like it but you never know.

    Yeah it is they changed the name for the US release. I was just wondering if they changed anything else small or not.

    It is the same game as Enchanted Folk. Anyway do you guys think the glitches will be fixed in this version, or would they still be there?

    What are the glitches? I might play this assuming that the glitches either aren't game-breaking or have been fixed for this release.

    What glitches were there? I remember someone mentioning something about it but I never ran into one personally.

    I renamed my Enchanted save file to match the US ROM. I'm running the latest official acekard firmware. Whenever I enter the school, the game freezes during loading. Going to try AKAIO firmware and report back.

    Okay, tried the AKAIO firmware with latest loaders with my renamed european save game. Game runs but it still freezes when trying to enter the school.

    Went back to the latest official Acekard firmware and started a new game. Was able to enter the school twice without it freezing. I'm going to try a new game with AKAIO and see if I get similar results.

    Right now, it doesn't look like the European save (renamed to match American name) will work. Might have to do with bug fixes? not sure. Can others try it out and report back?

    Still haven't gotten around the European save bug when entering the school. When I get the chance, I'll try out the Cyclo on my DSL. Having to start over would be disappointing considering I've solved maybe 3 mysteries, built up a nice item catalog, and have dozen's of spells. If there really is no significant bug fixes between between the US and European game I may stick with Enchanted Folk.

    for AKAIO, you have to change the DMA mode by holding "A" while the ROM is loading. So far, that has fixed the freezing when entering the school. The music is different in the American version. Apparently in the European release, they took out some of the music from the Japanese version. The American version retains the music however. Still not clear on what the new items are?

    It looks like there's a LOT more to do here than in AC, which is why I quit playing AC in the first place. There was never anything to do but pick fruit every 3 days, buy crap for my ever-expanding house, and try to catch all the fish and bugs. Hopefully MQ'll keep me interested a bit longer than AC did.

    From what I've read the US release will have 200 new items and Glitch fixes.
    Thats just what I've heard though.

    I've been playing the European version and have been liking it.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Edit: my findings from the game and junk. In spoiler tag due to length.

    Maybe I should go post a full review later...

    I hope my European save will transfer over to the US version.
    Kinda tempted to buy the game too, though its still rather kiddy at an E+10 rating. (due to animal dating)

    Anyway, I suggest the game, give it a try.

    Oh and heres a Wiki I found on the game.
    http://enchantedbros.wikidot.com/
    For anyone that starts to get into it.

    Lemme know if any of ya wanna trade friend codes. I think I'll have mine in my sig later once I get things together.
