Hudson Soft's Japanese Exclusive RPG Momotarou Densetsu (Aka The Legend of Peach Boy) Fan Translated

Hudson-Softs-Japanese-Exclusive-RPG-Momotarou-Densetsu-Aka-The-Legend-of-Peach-Boy-Fan-TranslatedIn 1987 the Nintendo Famicom saw the release of a soon long lasting series from Hudson Soft known as Momotaro Densetsu. Whilst a popular comical RPG series in Japan spanning multiple releases, not a single title left the Far East. As of today though, retro gamers can enjoy the first game in the series thanks to a fan translation patch.

Not to be mistaken for the very similar sounding digital board-game series featuring the same characters known as Momotarou Dentetsu (note the letter T), Momotarou Densetsu (aka The Legend of Peach Boy) was a traditional J-RPG that followed the Japanese folklore character Momotarō - one who supposedly came to Earth inside a giant peach.

As bizarre as the folklore sounds, even though that's just the beginning of it, our protagonist must set out upon a journey to slay the troublesome Oni Ogres. The gameplay is very similar to that of the earlier Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest titles, where by you must adventure, gain battle experience, acquire new equipment and travel from town to town.

The fan translation patch for Momotarou Densetsu (Aka The Legend of Peach Boy) which has just been released finally brings this unusual Nintendo Famicom hit to English speaking audiences.

As usual, to enjoy this fan translation patch you will need to have an original ROM file of the game in which you can apply this patch to. Full instructions on how to patch this ROM can be found within the download, or you can refer to this handy ROM patching guide on YouTube.
