    Ahhh, I definitely will have to try this.
    I friggin love the theme tune, and I enjoyed Richard's cameo in Link's Awakening.

    I've even heard one character made a cameo in Wario Land 4, ya know the old archaeologist who usually ended up being thrown around to solve puzzle rooms.

    This is dynamite, finally everyone can enjoy this game. [​IMG]

    *stares at Nintendo* Deal with it, anyway, it's not like they can C&D this project (especially now that it's finished, and it's just a patch to the original game), at best it can give them some idea, like reusing this script to release the game on virtual console.

    Nintendo might ask the guy if they can release it for a "Hanabi festival", if they're smart.
    I'd certainly support that with a purchase.

    Hell, there's Mother 3, Starfox 2, and this, all games that are completed and translated, but never released in some places, or even at all in Starfox 2's case.

    In all sensible business practice though, Nintendo will only distance themselves from unauthorised modders like this.
    Even SEGA wised up and hired the programmer for JenesisDS, made a commercial release out of homebrew called Sonic Classic Collection!

    Nintendo should hire fan translators and paid a small amount of money to them, in order to release these old japanese RPG in the virtual console. They can get a good profit with practically 0 effort.

    Just a short question for those who completed the game. I played through it a couple of times. Got every item (except if there is some hidden ultra rare one) and got all my stuff maxed up. I just can't find use for the second bottle. I could always fill the first bottle with wine, but never the second. Also, what does the counter represent from the Diary ? How often you died ? How often you saved ? Or something like a chapter ?

    I'm really late to the party, but...

    I stuck this on my PSP when I saw this thread and forgot about it, but recently saw it and decided to play it. It's certainly an interesting game. Mixing in the puzzle mechanics with swapping around the forms is interesting. When I first realized it'd be a core mechanic I feared I'd be running into all sorts of puzzles I couldn't complete, but the few I've run into (only up to the mining town so far) felt almost natural to work through. The story's pretty silly but it's usually clear on where I need to go next, but I have to admit it took me a bit to get the "this guy kills you until you find all the powerups" thing each area goes into, and it's getting too hard for me by the time of the mining town.
