Phantasy Star Retranslation released
Post Posted: Wed Dec 20, 2006 4:17 pm


Exactly 19 years after its first release, there is now a high-quality translation of Sega's original Phantasy Star game from Japanese into English.

You can now download it from our translations section:

Phantasy Star retranslation 0.90

Thanks go to Paul Jensen for his translation, Z80 Gaiden for his outstanding hacking work, and all the other people who have worked on or helped with the project. We are releasing version 0.90 today so that if there are any bugs - or corrections - we can put them all in version 1.00 in time for the 20th anniversary, one year from now.

So travel to Algol and avenge Nero's death all over again. Can you do it in less than 6 hours? Or is a genuine old-school RPG too hard for you?

Features:

- Full-size (ie. not edited for space) mixed-case professionally-written English script
- Expanded menus and windows
- Compatible with your existing saved games
- All original Japanese content preserved
- Tested and compatible with all popular emulators and flash cartridges
- Advanced compression and dynamic scripting engine means it all fits in the original 512KB size, so you can replace the original ROM to play on a real system

It's nice to see the translation finally released. I'd always hoped to see this happen, from the minute I started translating that script dump circa 1999(!). Thanks for all the hard work, everyone. And to everyone else, enjoy.

Feel free to report any oddness in the script, guys, for future revisions. I was pretty careful with the localization, but due to the nature of the game, it's pretty hard to test everything without just starting from the beginning and fixing it up as you go.

(if I'm not mistaken, the dialogue when you meet the governor-general is probably a little weird...that'll definitely be fixed up next release)

A few points to note:

- You can try to find the correct Japanese ROM using this Google search (using the GoodSMS name). Please make sure you have the correct ROM before patching it.
- There will (hopefully) be an update to the patch today to fix a few minor errors and to improve the script's consistency.
