Final Fantasy Legend II DS Remake gets a Fan Translation Patch

Final-Fantasy-Legend-II-DS-Remake-Fan-TranslationThe Nintendo DS remake of the Nintendo Game Boy RPG; Final Fantasy Legend II, remained a Japanese exclusive until recently. Fan translation group Crimson Noctural have released a patch to translate the Japanese version of SaGa 2: Goddess of Destiny.

Looking back at the screenshots and videos released in the run up to SaGa 2 being released in Japan, it was a real shame that the game never saw an English localisation. Especially after receiving great praise from the likes of, it comes as a surprise it never was localised.

Released in the US back in 1991, Final Fantasy Legend II was never released in Europe and remains as a must-import from North America. As far as portable RPGs go, the Final Fantasy Legend series were the closest you could get to a console RPG in the early 90s (a good few years before the likes of Pokemon Red & Blue and Zelda: Links Awakening arrived on the scene).

Here is a quick gameplay video of the fan translation, one you'd agree looks far from the original Nintendo Game Boy version of the game:

The translation patch from Crimson Nocturnal needs to be applied to a ROM of the Japanese game. One we hope readers of RetroCollect will acquire legally before applying the patch.
