This week’s Rom Hack Roundup has two excellent and innovative RPGs for the SNES. Last week, we looked at Square’s lost 90s output and today we look at two of Enix’s greatest works that never made it to North America. These two companies were console RPG mammoths in Japan and they created some of the most beautiful and engrossing games on the SNES.
Although these games never came out on the SNES in North America, some dedicated Rom hackers have translated the script so you can play them without learning Japanese. Read on and check them out!
If you enjoy the classic SNES console RPGs, there’s an amazing world of fan-translated Japanese classics you can try out thanks to the hard working fans who took the time to painstakingly translate and craft ROM patches that let you enjoy them in English. Here’s our first in a long list of games to try out. This week we focus on Square, who churned out beautiful games in the 90’s for the Super Famicom and really set the bar high for atmospheric and long-play RPGs.
While some of these games have since been translated and released on other systems, there’s nothing quite like playing the SNES originals. See our previous article on how to set up the software you need to patch. It literally only takes a few minutes to do it for each game. Read on to find hours of epic immersion.
