Revised translation patch for Jesus: Kyoufu no Bio Monster released


A revised translation patch has been released for the Famicom version of Jesus: Kyoufu no Bio Monster (or Jesus: Tale of the Dreadful Bio Monter), a text heavy adventure/RPG that involves a mission to a space station known as J.E.S.U.S. to investigate a returned Halley’s Comet, which is headed towards Mars with some form of life inside.

The game was developed by Chunsoft, a popular Japanese developer who was responsible for many of the earlier Dragon Quest games. In fact, Dragon Quest composer Koichi Sugiyama worked on the soundtrack. Originally released in 1987 on the PC-88, MSX and FM-7, the game was brought to the Famicom in 1989. Enix released a sequel in 1989 for the PC-98 in 1989, followed by an X68000 port in 1991.

While a translation patch was released five years ago, authors Pennywise and Niahak decided to revisit the game to clean up a few things. They claim that it’s an almost entirely different experience.

Video Game Ad of the Day: Dragon Warrior II

Or Dragon Quest II, if you prefer.

Dragon Warrior II is set about 100 years after the first game, with the player taking control of a prince who happens to be a descendent of Loto/Erdrick, who is on a quest to defeat the evil wizard Hargon. It was one of the first games to utilise the concept of your party growing as your quest is played out. The game has been re-released twice: one on the SNES (Japan only) and on a combo cartridge with the first game.
