    Hey.
    I found this sprite sheet in a Swedish gaming magazine and I have been wondering about what games these sprites come from. They did not post any names under the sprites, just states they are princesses.

    I have marked the ones I try to find out with a red ring. I would be very happy if you could help me out with this. Sorry if the picture is a bit bad but it was hard to get a good picture of it. Hope it wont be any problems.

    The green princess on the first line is from Chrono Trigger, as far as I remember

    I don't know of the others, though

    We can't see the bottom of the picture.

    I could identify only the second circle (count them from left to right, top to bottom)
    Other sprites looks familiar, but I don't know if they really are from the game I think.

    1:
    2: Princess Nadia/Marldia/Marle, could be Queen Lynne/Leene too (Chrono Trigger)
    3:
    4:
    5:
    6:
    7:
    8:
    9:
    10:
    11:
    12:


    What other sprite make me think:
    1: a NES game. Maybe Final fantasy like
    3: a "kid", hand drawn game style. Mario&Luigi/Paper mario could match that style, but I don't think it is that game.
    4: I don't even understand the drawing. Looks like a black mage ghost-opus holding an egyptian ank?
    8: Marl's kingdom style?

    I don't think 3 has anything to do with Megaman, at all

    Nor do I. I really suggest you write in to the editors and ask though! I'd like to know myself... Other than a few at the bottom, which just feel like JRPG style princesses, I don't know what any of these circled sprites are from or could be from.

    There's a subtitle which may well give a hint. According to google, it translates to "Princess and the Frog"

    That's a clue! if they are all releated to frog it can help find the game.

    @getaman:
    Do you have the full page scanned/pictured?
    Seeing the corresponding frogs (I support there's frog/princess links) could also help find the game.

    8 could be Marl's kingdom then? that game is frog-related: the hero is afraid of frogs. nop


    You don't need to know to other sprites? you already know where they are from?
    If you do, please tell us.

    That's most definitely not Marle/Nadia. It is queen Leene, who has close ties with Frog, inviting him to be one of the knights in Guardia castle. Marle was always in a blue dress, never a green one.

    Just needed to clarify that. -.-;

    I suppose I must bow to BrightNeko's far superior sprite recognition skills- on the entire sheet I got all of two of them and only one of the highlighted ones (Princess Jasmine and Princess What's-Her-Name).

    First one I didn't know the game where it came from but it is definitely Peach. Look at the hair.
